My Sport, My Story Workshops

Disability Sport Ni will deliver workshops to a class or year group within eleven secondary schools to highlight how local female sports people have overcome barriers to become successful in sport.

Each workshop will explore why we take part in sport and physical activity, barriers and solutions to participation for females, as well as trying out some disability sports. They will highlight how local females with a disability overcame barriers to become involved in sport and physical activity. A key speaker will also be available to deliver at each workshop and share their story. The speaker may include Kelly Gallagher (Skiing) or Claire Taggart (Boccia).
