Able and Active (adults 16+years) Wednesdays

Description

Have fun playing adapted multi-sports, such as boccia, goalball and wheelchair sports as well as mainstream sports such as football and basketball.

Able and active have three main outcomes that are key for children and young people disabilities.

1. Fitness. The players will take part in a wide range of sports from mainstream sports such as football, tennis to disability specific sports such as wheelchair basketball and goalball. This means two hours of sporting activity a week and trying a wide range of sports that they could also go to away from the club.

2.Social and friendship. As many of the activities are team games, the players quickly learn team building skills and create friendships, helping to improve listening, communication and honesty.

3. Independence. By being left at the club by their parents carers, players gain confidence. Many past players have developed and aspired to be team captains and play bigger roles in the club. Players also have the freedom to introduce and suggest other sports they want to do and, if they wish, to explain the sport to the rest of the group. This greatly improves confidence and communication skills.
