Disability Coaching

Sports activities for children and adults with disabilities

We offer a wide range of disability programmes to ensure young people and adults across the North-East can enjoy sport, an active lifestyle and build friendships.

Making Moves, our disability coaching team, deliver fun, exciting and challenging sessions and activities which help develop gross motor skills, balance and coordination as well as encouraging teamwork, communication and confidence.

 

DS DEVILS ADULT DISABILITY TEAMS

Our disability football teams give young people and adults the chance to compete in regular competitive football throughout the North East.

We currently have a number of adult and junior teams competing in the North East Ability Counts League which helps develop players' social interaction skills, teamwork, communication and football skills by taking part in a fun, but competitive, league structure.
