    Boccia
    Similar to Boccé, Boccia debuted as a Paralympic sport in 1984. Competing in wheelchairs, athletes throw, kick or use a ramp device to propel leather balls as close as possible to a white ball which serves as the jack (target). Players compete in team and individual events on an equal level.

    Fitness Class
    A classic weekly gym session at MY Gym, where participants are supervised on all types of equipment, and lead in a workout. A great social catch-up as well as for keeping fit.

    Futsal / Soccer
    Futsal is the incredibly popular version of indoor soccer. Our group welcomes players of all ages and levels. For those keen on an elite path, there is the opportunity to train with the aim of making the Tasmanian Inclusion Rep team!

    A lovely social group, including players of all age-groups. Held at the New Horizons clubrooms in Mowbray, this is a great introduction to a new sport in a very supportive environment.

    Running Group (summer)
    A general fitness jogging group, who run trails and paths around Launceston. A terrific way to increase fitness for your other sporting pursuits.

    Song & Dance
    One of our favourite programs. Led by song & dance legend Melissa Wimner, this group not only has a lot of fun and gets great exercise, but they also work through the year, learning pieces which are performed at a popular end-of-year concert.

    Junior Song & Dance
    Led by the warm and welcoming Maryanne, this group is made up of school-aged kids who have fun and build confidence in a wonderfully supportive environment. Parents are welcome to stay and have afternoon tea, while participants learn new songs, dances and prepare acts for their end of year concert.

    Swimming
    New Horizons runs two different weekly swimming groups — and there really is something for everyone. For learner swimmers who lack confidence in the pool but would like to develop skills at their own pace, come along to and work with Maggie. For other who like to lap-train, this is an ideal fitness group and perhaps a great stepping-stone to joining a club.

    Taekwondo
    Start as a beginner with this dynamic group of all ages and the sky is the limit! This internationally renowned Korean martial art is taught by Mike Flanagan and works on concentration and confidence.
