What happens at AllSorts?

Copy+of+DSC01299.jpg

AllSorts sessions always begin with a game of Duck Duck Goose whilst 'Athletes' (our participants) and our Session Coaches' are paired up.

Depending on the level of support appropriate to them, Athletes might be paired one-to-one with a Session Coach, or in small groups. Some Athletes might enjoy helping out our Session Coaches and Sport Leaders, which is also welcome!

After Duck Duck Goose, our Sports Coordinator leads a whole group warm up before the athletes are split into smaller groups.

These groups rotate around the different activities on offer that session (normally three different sports), which generally change each week.

Halfway through the session we have a water break, and it is KEEN tradition to always end with a big Hokey Cokey all together.

 
 
KEEN gives Ellie the chance to participate in sports without being the odd one out. This has helped her self-confidence and she loves to talk about the different sports she has done.

What are the benefits?

The activities at AllSorts promote co-ordination, concentration, mobility, body awareness and fitness. Athletes have the opportunity to learn new skills and have fun in a relaxed, supportive and non-competitive environment, just as their peers would. 

These effects can have huge positive changes in health, quality of life and self-esteem, promoting new friendships and a sense of accomplishment.
