Inclusive Athletics Taster day
Published: 26 April 2019
On April 12th we held what we hope will be the first of our inclusive athletics days. With 15 athletes turning up, plus parents and helpers from Oxford City AC and Access Sport, we had three hours of fun introducing young (and some slightly older) athletes to the joys of run, jump and throw. Has long jumping ever been so much fun? Did we spend more time building sand castles than jumping? Not quite, but it was close. And we jumped over the high jump, threw some discus, and some javelins, and ran until we were hot and tired.
We will be organising more of these days in 2019, so look out for announcements, but we would eventually like to make this a regular activity for everyone – if you feel like getting involved just come along to the next session.
