Sporting Chance Chosen as Lead Partner in Kerry for 2014 Xcessible Inclusive Youth Sport Initative
The Sporting Chance programme at National Learning Network Tralee has been chosen as the lead partner in Kerry for the 2014 Xcessible Inclusive Youth Sport Initiative. The focus this year is the Special Schools Sportshall Athletics Programme which provides children with intellectual disabilities with the opportunity to participate in athletic events in an indoor setting with the emphasis on teamwork and fun!
Students from Sporting Chance will work in partnership with the Cara APA centre and Tralee Harriers A.C. in delivering an athletics coaching programme to two local schools. It’s hoped that the programme will encourage the children to enroll with their local clubs and participate in the activities on a more regular basis!http://xcessible.caraapacentre.ie/
