Over the last three weeks 17 students from local centres have being participating in Sports Ability Meet n’ Train implemented by Westmeath Sports Partnership. Over the eight week period, a variety of sports and fun activities will take place, so far students have learned some tennis skills at Mullingar Tennis Club and this week they took to the forest at Lilliput Adventure Centre for some orienteering.
The Sports Ability Meet & Train Programme provides an opportunity for centres to come together and meet & train with people of similar ability, do some exercise, have fun and most importantly meet new people. This programme promotes social inclusion between disability organisations and centres which will be matched on ability levels.
For the remaining weeks the programme will incorporate gym, athletics, walking, soccer and dance. We would like to thank all the local organisations who have helped by facilitating the programme.
