Victorian Goalball Association

Goalball is a sport designed for and played by blind and vision impaired people. It is a fast-paced, indoor sport that relies on hearing.

If you would like to get involved, come and check it out. Our local competition is held at the Scotch College Junior School Gym, from 9:20am on Saturdays from April until September. Enter at gate 7 on the corner of Callentina Road and Glenferrie Road.

We also run Goalball, give a go! days throughout the year, offering the opportunity to try out Goalball in a friendly and safe environment.
