People living with disabilities are often least exposed to much physical activity. We provide safe and tailored sporting activities to promote inclusiveness, which increases self-esteem and confidence; focusing on their abilities and not their limitations.
A Charity report has reported that at least half of all disabled children do not feel comfortable taking part in sport and more than a third – 36 per cent – of parents surveyed said a major barrier to their disabled child participating in sports is social stigma.
The second major barrier was costs, with 76 per cent of Special Educational Needs schools saying facilities were inadequate for disabled children.
There are a variety of barriers that make it more difficult for disabled children to participate in sport, leading to an increased risk of social isolation and lack of confidence. Barriers to exercise could make disabled children more vulnerable to obesity and health problems.
Boxercise/Kickboxing (if able),
People with disabilities are able to enjoy boxing in the same way as any non-disabled person, and that they have opportunities to achieve in the sport.
We enable young people to have an opportunity to participate in athletics tailored to their needs.
Circuits consist of several stations with different activities for young people to rotate through in a short period of time (usually one or two minutes).
Our coaches provide support at each station to make sure that all participants know what is to be performed and provide demonstrations; executing the entire circuit and encourage everyone to participate at his or her own rate of speed.
Circuits can be easily adjusted to accommodate limitations of participants with disabilities.
Through dance, our participants gain life, social and communication skills with added health and wellbeing benefits. It is also great for developing motor skills and coordination.
