ARGYLE Community Trust delivers disability specific soccer schools.
The Trust offers a successful disability soccer school which is centred around delivering days of football fun and games to local young people who are autistic or are awaiting a diagnosis of autism.
Working closely in partnership with Plymouth City Council, the Trust aims to give carers respite but to also offer new opportunities to young people they may never have experienced in the past.
Each day sees the youngsters taking part in fun-filled sport sessions, aimed at improving their basic skills whilst making new friends. The courses, full of mini-games and technique workshops, sees each participant work with professional Argyle coaches, giving them a unique experience of what it is like to be a professional ‘Pilgrim’.
To compliment practical sport sessions, each participant takes part in exciting workshops aimed at improving their understanding of both the game, as well as the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Skills that will be introduced include smoothie making classes, kit design and basic first aid tips.
