Our Mainstream games take place in any mainstream school – state or independent, primary, prep or secondary. These games work best with 8-13 year olds, though older students can benefit by being taught to teach the games – see our Training Model. We use between 3 and 8 activities – we choose with you from sitting volleyball, new age kurling, visually impaired football, boccia, goalball, table top games (paddle bat, table cricket, and table tennis), floor lacrosse, and parachute games, flexing the choice to the number of participants, the age and size of year groups and the available space. We can (at extra cost) source wheelchair basketball too.
We teach the pupils why and how the games were created and developed to accommodate disabled people. We explain that 1 in 5 people will have some form of disability at some point in their lives, and that these games will allow them either to participate and will enable others to join in.
Happily, we have discovered that a number of the pupils who were not thought of as “sporty” find an activity they enjoy. It may be the new game itself, thinking up new activities to promote inclusion, or it might be assisting another team player to participate.
