Mazenod Panthers teams cater for all people with an intellectual disability regardless of ability, in one of our two teams playing in the AFLVIC/Football Integration Development Association (AFLVIC/FIDA), in a competition of 16 clubs throughout Victoria. Games are played every second Sunday during the football season and finals during August. Training is held every Wednesday night (pre-season at Mazenod College, Mulgrave and during season at Central Reserve, Glen Waverley).
The purpose of the All Abilities teams is to enable access for people with disability to the game of Australian Rules football. The club vision is to create the best All Abilities football experience and by doing this thus allowing each participant to become the best they can be.
Success for our team is not necessarily by games won, but by the progress of many players with coordination and body movement, and the confidence to achieve many of life skills through integration with the general community.
