SportsAble Engages with Local Young Persons Project

SportsAble has started working with local group CATS YPP (Children on the AuTistic Spectrum, Young Persons Project) to provide regular inclusive sporting activities to its inspirational group of young people during the summer holidays.

Each session the children come to SportsAble multi-sports centre in Braywick Park to enjoy a range of sports including Wheelchair Basketball, Boccia and New Age Kurling which are delivered by our highly-trained and passionate sports coaches.

“We are delighted to have found an establishment such as SportsAble and in particular how highly we rate Niall (Sports Manager) and Damian (Sports Development Officer), ” explains Debbie Slater who runs CATS YPP with Kath White.

Debbie continues, “Both Niall and Damian have been amazing at arranging and setting up all the activities, even when I made a mistake with the dates. Niall bent over backwards to sort this out and put something else in place to accommodate us. The children are so relaxed when doing their activities, they always look forward to every session and love seeing Niall and Damian each time. We are looking forward to working more and more with everyone at SportsAble. Maidenhead and CATS YPP  are so lucky to have SportsAble and its team!”

Niall McCaffrey, SportsAble’s sport manager says, “Engaging with local community groups such as CATS YPP is at the heart of what SportsAble wants to do. Seeing how much the children enjoy sport and all the fun of competing against each other and achieving things they haven’t tried before is great.”

SportsAble would love to hear from other local groups who may be interested in providing sport and other physical activities to their members.
