This February half term, Sport for Confidence teamed up with the Action for Children charity once again, via Essex Short Breaks to offer inclusive sporting opportunities for young people.
Taking place at Waterside Farm Leisure Centre, and Witham Leisure Centre, sessions provided opportunities for 25 young people, aged 3-18 years, to take part in a range of fully adaptive, accessible sporting activities including multi sports, dodgeball, boccia and New Age Kurling.
Every session was delivered by a health professional and a sports coach who ensured that the needs of each individual were met. Carers and siblings are also attended and got involved in the sessions.
Jake Turner, Positive Behavioural Support Practitioner at Sport For Confidence, says: “We are determined that there is no reason anybody should miss out on getting involved in some sporting fun over half term breaks. Our sessions are fully inclusive and focused on enjoyment and laughter. As well as learning new skills, there are also opportunities to meet new people and enjoy the social side of sport.”
There are plans to run similar sessions next half term, so if you are interested to attend or would like to find out more, contact info@sportforconfidence. Please note, participants that require one to one support will need to attend with a parent or carer.
