This organisation provides sporting opportunities for all people who have an intellectual disability. While sport is the basis of the organisation, the benefits of participation are much greater than physical fitness. Through participating in sport, athletes with intellectual disabilities make friends; they gain confidence; they get to be part of a team. As athletes develop physically and emotionally, they learn that they can achieve not only on the sports field, but in the community.
These fun sports days are for children with disabilities who have been training at school to improve their skills and then they come along to an inter-school competition day and see how they have improved.
Your team will be helping out at this outdoors Football day which includes inter-school football games between teams. Your team will be setting up, refereeing games, time-keeping, scoring and cheering the students on. Help is also needed with admin, data entry and having someone MC the event. You will see how lives are changed by the great sense of achievement of students taking part in competitive sport.
