SportsAbility Day
 

Saturday 9th July 2011, 12-3pm. Cork Institute of Technology.

Cork Sports Partnership and the Cork SportsAbility Forum are hosting this year’s ‘SportsAbility Day’ at the Cork Institute of Technology on Saturday the 9th of July from 12-3pm. The aim of ‘Sports Ability Day’ is to showcase the range of indoor and outdoor sports activities available to people with a disability, all of which are available in Cork.
The message is simple, ‘sport is for everyone’ and the SportsAbility Day is open to anyone who shares our interest in sport and physical activity whether they are participants, a disability organisation, parents, friends or coaches. 

The organisers would like to encourage individuals, groups and families to come, experience and participate in a fun environment. They will be demonstrating that, regardless of ability, there is a sport out there for everyone to get involved in.

There is so much to choose from: from soccer, to wheelchair rugby, to cycling, to wheelchair basketball, to boccia, and more, and most importantly, they are all available in Cork. It is a fantastic opportunity for people with a disability to come along and experience all that ability sports has to offer in Cork.

The showcase will be of tremendous interest to the many organisations in Cork who work with people with a disability. The Irish Wheelchair Association, Special Olympics Munster, People with Disabilities in Ireland, and the Cope Foundation are among the many representatives of organisations expected to attend the free event.
