We are a Non-Profit charitable voluntary organisation providing tailored Multi-Sports after school clubs for children with disabilities. We decided to set this club up when we realised that disabled children had limited opportunities to fully participate in recreational sporting events. We wanted the children to have the chance to learn new sports and enjoy challenging themselves and being part of a team, in a way that would be both fun and physically beneficial.
Inspired by the 2012 London Paralympics, our clubs offer new opportunities for children with physical, sensory and learning disabilities and provide specialist sports and games so that they can benefit from physical activities.
Our clubs encourage social and physical development, promote independence and enhance social skills and co-ordination. We aim to help our children reach their full potential and give them opportunities to compete at their chosen level whilst having fun.
We started in January 2013, with one club offering a wide range of sports, including boccia, football, benchball, sitting volleyball and goalball; in September 2013 we opened our second club and in 2014 we will be expanding to open 2 further sports clubs and a brand new dance club.
We welcome children with a wide range of physical and learning disabilities. Every sport and activity is tailored and adapted so that all the children can participate fully and nobody feels left out.
All staff and volunteers are CRB checked, and experienced at working with children who have additional needs.
