General information
Able and active have 3 main outcomes that are key for children and young people disabilities

1. Fitness; the participants 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 will lead to the participants taking part in at least 2 hours of sporting activity a week and also showing them a wide range of sports that they could attend away from the club

2.Socal/friendships; as many of the activities we play are team games this would lead to team building then on to friendship building as many of the qualities are the same in both instances such as listening, communication, honesty.

3. Independence; By being left at the club by their parents/carers they gain confidence eventually wanting to be team captains and play bigger roles. The club also gives the participants freedom as to what sports they want to do and they are able if they wish to explain the sports to the rest of the group thereby giving them more confidence in groups which they can use outside of the club.
