Short Statured Sport Australia

Welcome to the New Era of Short Statured Sport in Australia. The success of the World Dwarf Games, combined with the enriched history of SSPA Sport, has led to the establishment of the Sport Specific Branch within the Short Statured People of Australia (SSPA).

The SSSA Website will provide a platform to, inform, promote, educate, and share short statured sporting opportunities, and sporting moments within Australia. The SSSA, will continue to promote and share the success of the Australia World Dwarf Games Team on the road to Germany 2021, and Australia 2025. Beyond the World Dwarf Games, the SSSA aim to enhance and grow the already successful sporting program within the SSPA. Expect additional content, new information, new opportunities and all things Short Statured Sport.

We hope to continue to grow as we embark on an exciting new era of sport for Short Statured Australians.
