Foundation & House of Sport Sunday ‘hub’ proving popular.
Cardiff City FC Foundation’s Disability department have been delivering their Sunday ‘hub’ at Cardiff City House of Sport facility every Sunday morning since September, which includes the delivery of Down’s Syndrome, Physical Disability, Deaf and Junior Learning disability sessions from 9am – 10am.
All groups have seen an increase in participation since using the facility, from 16 to 27 registered participants in the 2016/2017 season.
Joanna Borley, Director of the House of Sport Coaching facility had this to say about the sessions:
“The House of Sport prides itself in providing sustainable, accessible and high quality sport facilities for the local community, we’re thrilled that the Foundation’s attendance figures for disability sessions have risen at their community programmes.
We will continue to actively work with and support Josh’s fantastic team to help further expand disability sports provisions and participation levels in Cardiff and surrounding areas”.
Disability & Health Coordinator, Josh Law said:
“We are very fortunate to have such fantastic facilities to utilize on our doorstep. The players who use the facility on a Sunday love coming, hopefully by having some consistency with the venue and the timings we can continue to increase participation in all the sessions. We are exceptionally grateful for everyone at the House of Sport who have helped us make the sessions possible this year and we hope to continue the sessions in the future”.
