West Para-sport Festival 2017

The West of Scotland Para-sport Festival takes place on Friday 10th March 2017 at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, Motherwell.  The festival is funded by the Celtic Foundations ‘Inspiring Sport’ initiative who have been great supporters of this festival for the past 4 years.

The festival is open to P6/P7 and secondary pupils who have a physical disability and/or visual impairment.  This will be the 8th Para-sport festival held in the West of Scotland where over the years just under 400 distinct participants have had the opportunity to try different sports and participate with other pupils of a similar age and ability.  The sports are all delivered by qualified coaches who have links to local sports club, and is supported by students from Ayrshire College.

Due to the number of pupils in the West of Scotland the festival is split between the 13 local authorities, with Friday 10th March being for South Lanarkshire, North Lanarkshire, North Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway.

Later on in the year, Friday 10th November, there will be another Para-sport festival for Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, Renfrewshire, Argyll & Bute and Inverclyde.
