CAS Service: Enabling Sport
High School students will get involved in organising outdoor sports competition opportunities for adaptive sports
Help to organise and facilitate a range of action sport competition opportunities for disabled individuals. Current sports possible are mountain road cycling and rock climbing, but we are open to ideas from students or other organisations, to include other adaptive sports. Imagine provide the know-how of organising sports competitions, the framework and facilitators for the programme. Our partners Krankin’ Through China, a social enterprise enabling sport, invite their members to partake in the competitions and educate students along the way.
Initial seminar and planning takes place in school. Sports competitions can take place wherever the students choose to hold the competition. We will help to check venues for suitability.
Students aged 16-18. Participants from the public with disabilities will be invited to take part in the competitions.
We begin with a free, no-commitment initial meeting with teachers and students to go through the opportunity, the potential formats the program can take, and the timeframes and needs of the students. With notes from this meeting, we put together a proposed program, which students can chose to go with or to suggest alterations. All programs will then kick off with an educational seminar in school from KTI (disabled sport specialists), to give students a deeper insight into the topic and check out some cool adaptive sport equipment.
After this, students will be involved in planning the first sport competition together with Imagine. Mountain road cycling and rock climbing are some of the possibilities, but students may suggest any other sports, and Imagine will help to facilitate the development of the project.
Initial meeting and discussions free. Wheelchair users attend the sports competitions for free. Imagine's cost for facilitating, developing and guiding the programme with the students should come from the students or the school (exact costs to be discussed).
