Introduction to Mixed Ability:

North West Regional Workshop

The spread of coronavirus across the world has reminded many of us how important sport, exercise and connections are to our health and wellbeing. Social distancing has turned into social isolation, and a lack of sport has had a negative impact on our mental and physical health during successive lockdowns. The re-opening of group sports and clubs was the date that many people first looked forward to.

The last 18 months has also been a time of reflection, a time to see and appreciate people and our local communities, rather than someone’s status or abilities. As games, clubs and competitions return, we want more people to get involved with Mixed Ability sports.

As part of our commitment to building back a fairer and more equal society, IMAS are offering a free 'Introduction to Mixed Ability' workshop for all clubs and coaches in the north west on Wednesday 20th October, 6.00 - 7.30pm. This workshop will introduce you to the Mixed Ability model, supporting you to welcome a greater diversity of people, increase membership, and become more sustainable. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions and address any concerns that you may have about getting started.

Wednesday 20th October
18.00 - 19.30

All workshop delegates will receive a free welcome pack including the resources you need to start your Mixed Ability journey, plus some fun freebies!

In addition to this free workshop, we will be selecting a number of clubs to receive free IMAS Accreditation training, usually priced at £700. Our accredited clubs have full access to our peer network and the research we conduct, drawing on the latest evidence from across the world. Details of how to apply for this scheme will be made available during the workshop. For more information, please contact Imogen:
