Joint Councils Access for All Abilities (JCAAA) has developed an online inclusive sports
clubs and facilities resource, providing key access information regarding sports and recreation
venues within Port Phillip and Bayside municipalities. It also highlights programs that are
inclusive of people with disabilities, facilitated by the club. While the level of accessibility
varies between clubs, all support the philosophy of providing access for all.

We hope you find this guide useful in planning your next sport or recreation activity within City
of Port Phillip and Bayside City Council.

If your club or facility would like to be listed in this resource, please contact JCAAA on 9209
