‘Come & Ty it’ Days
What are ‘Come & try it Days’ ?
Come and Try It days are designed to give people a positive introduction to new activities in a non-competitive environment. They are hosted by qualified sports / exercise instructors who demonstrate the basic skills of the sports in an easy-to-understand way so that participants gain the confidence to take up the activity on a more regular basis.
Come & Try It days have been organised to specifically accommodate people with a learning / intellectual disability and also people with a physical disability and activities have included wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair soccer, boccia, new age kurling, aerobics, archery, soccer and gaelic.
Four days in total were held in Monaghan and Cavan catering for over 180 people with a disability and including over 60 post primary school students as part of raising disability awareness.
