Wheelchair Skills for Sport

This course equips sports leaders and volunteers with the practical skills to deliver safe, inclusive and engaging warm up activities, skills development activties and fun games for wheelchair users.

The Wheelchair Sports Skills Leaders Course has been developed to meet the needs of coaches at all levels regardless of experience and is designed to be user friendly with clear guidelines and instructions.

The course and resource pack focus on the development of core fundamental skills such as balance, catching, co-ordination, throwing, striking and agility. The emphasis is placed upon overall sporting development rather than winning and competition and aimed at children aged 5-9 years, however due to later development and possible acquired disabilities at this age, the range can be extended for children with disabilities.
