National award for disabled sports coach Temi

Coach Temi has won a national award!

We are proud to announce that following Temi’s win of the StreetGames’ South-East regional Volunteer/Doorstep Coach of the Year award – he now has another gong to add to his collection.

Temi has now been named as the national winner in the same category. He received his award at a packed Club Wandsworth session, where he now coaches.

His journey from volunteer to paid coach, has been made possible through our Inclusive Activity Leaders’ programme, together with Nike, where disabled and non-disabled people train side-by-side to become qualified sports coaches.

Temi completed specialist courses from StreetGames as part of the awards.

Temi, who has cerebral palsy, received his award at Club Wandsworth, where he now coaches. He said: “This award means a lot and will really motivate me to continue working hard and giving my best.”

Rash from StreetGames said: “Temi’s confidence, resilience and leadership qualities have enhanced his coaching career and enabled him to accomplish two awards!”

Dora Crook, DSC’s Head of Service Delivery, said: “Temi’s contribution to Disability Sports Coach is amazing, both as a volunteer, and now a paid coach. He is an invaluable member of the Wandsworth team and his StreetGames award is so richly deserved. We are beyond proud to play a small part in Temi’s journey to success.”
