The IMAS Mixed Ability Awards Scheme
A coach, club or national governing body can achieve an IMAS award by going through a process of IMAS training with associated resources.
This Awards Scheme answers calls from those involved to be recognised and supported by IMAS at all stages of their Mixed Ability journey.
Three categories of award are available.
Mixed Ability Certification
For qualified coaches who demonstrate a commitment to providing Mixed Ability sessions and promote Mixed Ability sport
Mixed Ability Accreditation
For clubs who demonstrate a commitment to providing a safe, welcoming and non-judgmental environment for all participants and promote Mixed Ability sport
Mixed Ability Affiliation
For partners and national governing bodies who demonstrate a commitment to the IMAS Manifesto and promote Mixed Ability sport
We’ve got more members who are more representative of our local community which is great. I’ve got people volunteering for roles who never volunteered before and we’re engaging coaches who were previously inactive.
I loved the session. It was hugely relevant, massively thought provoking and very inspiring around engagement in sport and social inclusion but in a far wider way it gave us all a really refreshing take on GP’s. How we can realise our power as General Practice within a community when we might be perceiving ourselves to be relatively powerless to do anything at times.
It's outstanding, the knowledge and awareness that this training raises, so simply and clearly by having players of all abilities sharing their experiences
It’s been such a successful growth area for us. Mixed Ability Rugby is doing a great job of bringing people back into the game and contributing to growth across the board.
