Dates for 2019 are Wednesday 31 July and Thursday 1 August.
The Challenge Games are getting bigger than ever. The 1RAR band is going to lead the Opening Parade of schools again this year.
Please make sure your school has registered online.
We are looking forward to catching up with everyone again this year.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VOLUNTEERS OF THE CHALLENGE GAMES
If you are considering volunteering at the Challenge Games in 2019 this is a reminder that due to changes to legislative procedures all volunteers will be required to obtain a Blue Card. This process takes approximately six weeks so it would be advisable to commence the process as soon as possible. Please follow the link to access the Application form.
You can also find additional information regarding volunteering at the Challenge Games on the volunteers page. You can link your application form to the Challenge Games.
If you have volunteered previously you will be aware how congested it can become as volunteers arrive each morning to sign on. This year we would like to attempt to ‘streamline’ the sign on process. When you or your organisation have definite numbers and/or names of volunteers it would be helpful if you could advise us of this, as well as any preferences for sporting stations you may like to work at. This will enable us to allocate people to areas prior to the days of the Challenge Games. Whilst we will attempt to consider your preferences and to allocate you to the requested areas, I’m sure that you will understand that we may need to allocate people to other areas to ensure we have adequate numbers at all the stations.
Without the continued support of all our volunteers, the Challenge Games would not be the success it is and we appreciate your support again in 2019.
The purpose of The Challenge Games is to provide two days of fun, friendship and participation in a range of sports and fun activities for school students who have a disability. These activities include running, jumping, throwing and team events plus many other fun/novelty activities. Students may participate in as many or few events as they wish, according to their own level of interest and ability.
The Challenge Games is run by a committee of dedicated individuals, sponsored by some fantastic businesses, and wouldn't be able to run without the donation of so much time by our team of volunteers.
The Challenge Games is being held on Wednesday 31st July and Thursday 1st Aug. Register today to guarantee your child a spot in North Queensland's only event of this nature.
All volunteers have to hold a blue card. It is free if you use the name 'The Challenge Games' as your organisation. Blue cards must be sighted on the day at The Challenge Games volunteers' tent. Click here to access the website.
