Event description: Shrewsbury Town Community Trust have announced that 20th January 2015 will see the start of Down’s Syndrome Football Sessions.
Sessions are in conjunction with DSActive. The essence of DSActive is to provide children and young people with Down’s syndrome the same benefits of being on a team as their able-bodied peers.Through football, this project aims to create a multi-tier learning environment that will improve the participants’ overall physical, social and emotional health.While participants are learning physical skills, they are simultaneously increasing their own social and emotional abilities.The Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) has been a key partner in making this project work. The DSA is the only organisation in the UK solely dedicated to living successfully with Down’s Syndrome (DS) with an aim of helping people with Down’s syndrome live a full and rewarding life.
The first four-week block costs £20. (20th Jan to 10th Feb) At the end of the four-week block every child who comes to the session will be entitled to a free match ticket to Shrewsbury Town’s home league match against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday 14 February.
