As part of our Community Club project, we are hosting three regional sports days across London in February 2016 for disabled people
The Sports Days are free events, giving all disabled people 11 years to adults the opportunity to take part in fun competition. Club participants will represent their Club to win the annual DSC Sports Day Regional trophies, and anyone else who attends will be assigned to a Club team.
It is the hope that new people that take part in the day will be inspired to then regularly attend their local Club. Emma Cranston, our Club Development Officer commented, “Since the last set of Sports Days, club participants constantly have been asking me ‘when is the next one?’ To be the winning club really is a big deal to them all.”
This year in each of the three days we will work alongside a partner organisation who will lead on the coaching in their sport. In the south region, Surrey Cricket will deliver, whilst The Tennis Foundation will deliver in the west region and Arsenal in the east. England Athletics are also supporting the events. By having sport specific sport partners at the days, it gives all those taking part the chance to find out more sports clubs on offers and provides a smooth transition into these clubs.
Each sports day will focus on sports which have been main sports in the clubs this term and popular with participants.
South Region: Tuesday 16th February at Caius House Youth Centre – Cricket & New Age Kurling
West Region: Wednesday 17th February at Willesden Sports Centre – Tennis & Athletics
East Region: Thursday 18th February at Copper Box Arena, The Queen Elizabeth Park – Athletics & Football
Registration will take place from 10am, competition staring at 10.30am. To register, just turn up on the day. Please, however, if you are bringing a group can you let us know to allow us to accommodate for numbers. Please do this by contacting, Emma Cranston on 07508 044435 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
