As part of disability month CITC’s ‘One City’ disability programme joined forces with the Premier League 4 Sport initiative to support the Children’s Abled and Disabled Sports programme, delivered by Manchester City Council.
This involved young people with disabilities from across the North West attending every day throughout February half term to try out a number of different sports.
It was a perfect opportunity for PL4S to step in and deliver some taster sessions to a wider audience.
Young people had the chance to play basketball, volleyball and judo during the week and couldn’t have been more thrilled with the wide array of sports on offer to them. All sessions were delivered by highly qualified PL4S coaches.
Fifty young people attended across the week and all left with a smile on their face.
Lee Mannion, City in the Community’s PL4S coordinator said ‘It’s a fantastic opportunity to work alongside our ‘One City’ Disability programme and deliver a wide range of sports to the young people.
It’s another great example of the work we do in our local community and shows that we deliver not only football but a wide range of programmes.’
The ‘One City’ disability programme is a three year programme funded by the Premier League Charitable Fund and MCFC.
It aims to increase sporting opportunities and develop player pathways for disabled people in Manchester.
“It was great to have the support of PL4Sport and offer the young people the opportunity to take part in some alternative sports. They all enjoyed themselves and look forward to trying new sports in the future,” said Daniel Landstrom, Disability Sport Manager.
Premier League 4 Sport sessions run across Manchester every evening in judo, basketball, badminton and volleyball.
