Annual Sportsability Festival on Tuesday 8th May
Young people with disabilities from Stroud schools will have the opportunity to participate in the Stroud Annual Sportsability Festival at Stratford Park Leisure Centre. The festival provides the opportunity for the young people to compete at a grassroots level as a member of a team and takes place on Tuesday 8th May 2007 from 10.00am-12.00pm
Stroud District Councilís community disability development officer, Hannah McLeod, added:
"The festival is all about fun. It allows children with disabilities to take part in sport and physical activity with an emphasis on enjoyment rather than competition"
Last year 40 young disabled people from The Shrubberies School (Stonehouse) and St Roses School (Stroud) took part in the district's first Sportsability event. This year pupils from Thomas Keble School will also be at the festival.
Each young person has been placed in a team which they will compete in during the festival this will be identified by team t-shirts, which have been donated by O2 - sponsors of the event.
The children will participate in activities including table cricket, polybat, boccia, new age kurling and parachute games. The festival is organised in partnership with Gloscat students as part of their BTEC National Certificate in Sport (Development and Fitness).
To find out more about the festival please contact Hannah McLeod, community disability development officer on 07921 250092 or turn up and see what is happening.
