Some fantastic partnership working between Moray Active Schools & Sports Development, SDS and Scottish Athletics has seen the local authority offer not one, but two FREE training opportunities for coaches and volunteers aspiring to, or working with, people with physical, sensory and learning disabilities.

Disability Inclusion Training is set to take place on the 16th February (09:30 – 12:30) at Keith Community Centre and is open to coaches, volunteers & teachers from any sport, club or setting. It will give attendees the confidence and tools to be able to adapt their sessions to include everyone and meet the various needs of athletes and players with disabilities.

It is shortly followed by an Inclusive Athletics workshop, which takes place at the Moray College Campus on Monday 11th March (18:00 – 21:00). This workshop is open to coaches and volunteers from all athletics settings (including JogScotland leaders) and will cover a range of topics including communication, supporting inclusion, technical knowledge, the classification system & competition system.

It is hoped that these workshops will increase the number and capacity of mainstream clubs who open their doors to people with disabilities, and that people with disabilities will feel more welcomed & supported in their local clubs.
