StarTrack is UK Athletics’ flagship grassroots participation programme, aiming to give young participants, male or female, real athletics experiences and helping them to develop skills. For the first time Wiltshire Council’s Sports Development Team is running a disability athletics group providing the opportunity for young people with disabilities aged between 8-19 years to take part in various athletics events. Sessions will be fun and energetic, giving young people the chance to be coached in a variety of athletics disciplines including javelin, high jump, long jump, hurdles and sprinting. All disciplines will be adapted wherever necessary to ensure that everyone can join in. Participants will also take part in a team competition, relays, warm-up games and, at the end of the week, they will have a chance to score points in each event, like a modern day decathlon!
It’s a great way to learn new skills, develop existing ones, make new friends and enjoy a fantastic two days of athletics, working with highly qualified and experienced coaches! Medals will be awarded and racing wheelchairs will be available to use throughout the camp.
The camp runs on the 7th April, 10.30am to 3pm and costs £15. For more information please contact Rob Paget, Disability Sports Development Officer on 01722 434770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
