The Hi5! Sports Club is a weekly programme which introduces children and young people to different sports and activities.

The programme has been specially designed by our inclusion coaches for those with physical or learning disabilities.

It uses rugby and other sports to develop fundamental movements such as agility, balance and co-ordination, as well as giving participants a safe, fun environment to get healthy.

Young people can come and go as they like – give a host of sports a try and work out which is best for them, with expert guidance along the way.

The whole family is welcome, whether disabled or not, meaning parents, siblings and friends can join in the fun! Each session is £2, with a termly cost of £10

During Term Two (November/December), Hi5! takes place in the Hayesfield School Sports Hall, Upper Oldfield Park, Bath BA2 3LA

Children and young people with disabilities are more likely to be obese than children without disabilities and this risk increases with age.

This is likely due to unusual dietary patterns and fewer opportunities to engage in physical activity.

Finding a sport for you or your family member to enjoy can be a struggle – with few opportunities to just come along and give it a try.

The Hi5! Sports Club also tackles the issue of social exclusion, which many children and young people struggle with. Friendships have been formed which extend well beyond the weekly Hi5! sessions.

Termly competition opportunities are due to take place for the 2018-19 season, with participants practising their skills for the first 5 weeks of term before competing against each other to be crowned the overall champion!

Other opportunities include participating in the Inclusive School Games festivals through Wesport.
