The Recreation and Sport Network provides training, mentoring and monitoring to support the presence of Sportslink alongside or in addition to sports providers mainstream activities.

Sportslink's objectives are for children with disabilities to develop basic sport skills that are necessary to play sport, and that will assist participants to make a transition to mainstream sporting groups. The services aims to provide children with disabilities the opportunity to learn running, jumping, throwing, catching, striking and kicking as well as the skills required to participate in team environments.

Sportslink programs can be tailored to develop particular skills required for a particular sport. Participation results in a variety of developments: skill acquistion, social interaction, confidence in group situations and confidence in their own ability.
