Disability sports


Childrens Able and Disabled Sports Coaching Camps take place in Allerdale each School holiday.

This is a fully inclusive sports coaching programme, we cater for all young people and groups are only split by age, not ability. We have experienced leaders to work with groups of young people who need extra support. Unfortunately we can not offer 1 - 1 support for any child but welcome them to the sessions with a supporting adult.

All activities are delivered by a qualified sports coach and will include football, athletics, gymnastics and swimming and more.

Costs are £10 for the first child in any one family, and £5 for additional children there after.

For more information or to book your place please call 01228 633759 or go to the Cumbrian SPAAF website for more details.
