The Halberg Junior Disability Games is an annual three day sports tournament open to 8-21 year olds with a physical or visual impairment.
The Games are a unique event in New Zealand and give athletes an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of competition, healthy comradery and make new friends.
Participants experience an authentic Games village environment and can try new sports while pursuing further sporting goals. For some the Games may be a stepping stone towards future sporting goals and even representing New Zealand in their chosen sport.
The Halberg Junior Disability Games was previously known as the Independence Games and the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation took over the hosting of the event in 2015.
