Grampian Schools Secondary Football Festival
22nd November 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Thanks to the Scottish FA, secondary pupils with disabilities and additional support needs once again have the opportunity to participate in fun, competitive football events with other schools.
This event is suitable for all secondary-aged pupils who have physical, sensory (visual and hearing) and learning disabilities, and/or additional support needs. Please note that this event takes place on a synthetic grass surface unsuitable for manoeuvring wheelchairs and powerchairs over.
Pupils with disabilities or additional support needs from primary schools in Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City & Moray are welcome to attend. The event is a partnership programme between the Scottish Football Association, Active Schools, Scottish Disability Sport & Grampian Disability Sport.
We welcome registrations from teams, and the format of the afternoon will involve a round-robin of 7-a-side matches lasting 10 minutes. No trophies or prizes are awarded, this is just for fun. Fixtures will be organised and officiated by SFA, but teams must have their own coach or staff member to look after their team.
Pupils should be accompanied by school staff or a parent/guardian during the session and all pupils should take snacks, drinks, lunch and any medications they may need during the event.
Pupils should wear comfortable sports clothing including clean trainers.
Please note that data will be shared between Grampian Disability Sport, Scottish Disability Sport, Active Schools Aberdeen, Active Schools Aberdeenshire, Active Schools Moray, Scottish Football Association & Sport Aberdeen for the purposes of planning the event. Data will not be shared with any wider organisations.
