Grampian Parasport Day 2016

In the build-up to the Rio Paralympic Games in September, Scottish Disability Sport, in partnership with Sport Aberdeen, sportscotland and Active Schools Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire, will be holding a Paralympic Parasport Day on 24 June 2016 at Aberdeen Sports Village.

Activities have been selected with great club links so children can continue to enjoy and develop within the sport.

The Parasport Day’s focus is on trying to provide a range of opportunities for children to try exciting sports and experience all the benefits these sports can provide – benefits like increased strength and physical fitness, and the opportunity to meeting new people and make new friends.  This can help increase confidence and develop skills that will help children as they progress in life.

Target Groups

The Parasport Day is aimed at children who have a physical disability or sensory impairment from both primary and secondary age groups.

Event Staff

The event will be staffed by Active Schools Coordinators, Sport Specific Development Officers, the Scottish Disability Sport Regional Development Manager and Club Coaches.
