Inclusive Sport Workshop for Young Leaders
Posted: Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:49
As part of the Youth Sport Trust Initiative Project Ability, led by Friars Academy in Northamptonshire a new Inclusive Sports Leadership workshop will take place from 4pm on Wednesday 4 March.
This is a great opportunity for Secondary Young Leaders to develop their knowledge and experience of Inclusive Sport and help deliver new School Games Competitions at their School. The workshop is open to all students with an interest in Sports Leadership, it will take place at Huxlow Science College, Irthlingborough. Huxlow Science College launched a new Inclusive Sport Project this year in partnership with the Youth Sports Trust and Friars Academy.
The workshop will also be a unique chance to meet Sky Sports Living for Sport Ambassador and London 2012 Paralympian Alistair Patrick-Heselton. A former QPR player, he had his career halted by injury and later recovered from a serious car crash to launch a new career in CP Football at International level. Alistair enjoys a number of roles meeting young people with the FA, Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and Sky Sports Living for Sport.
The workshop will include an introduction to Inclusive Sport formats; the integration of non disabled and disabled students into new exciting Competition opportunities. The main focus will be a practical session of Inclusive Sitting Volleyball.
All students attending will be encouraged to go back to their School and support a group of students with special educational needs or disability to access and participate in School Sport. This could involve setting up a new Level 1 School Games Competition.
