Visual Impairment Sport Engagement Day

Visual Impairment Sport Engagement Day

Scottish Disability Sport is working in partnership to provide an event for children, young people and adults with visual impairments from across Scotland to host a Visual Impairment Sport Engagement Day on Saturday 19 March 2016 at Forrester High School, Edinburgh.

The aim of the event is to provide an introduction to sport and engage participants in sport. RNIB, Haggeye, Guide Dogs Scotland and Visibility are supporting Scottish Disability Sport and governing body partners the Scottish Football Association,JudoScotland, Scottish Swimming and Scottish Athletics to provide a quality experience to participants on the day.

Many people with a visual impairment are not aware of the opportunities available to them in their local area. Scottish Disability Sport Regional Managers will be on hand on the day to raise awareness and support participants to get involved in their chosen sport in their local area. If you would like to have a chat about the event please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sports on offer throughout the day are: athletics, bowls, football,  goalball, judo and swimming.

If you have a visual impairment or know someone with a visual impairment that would like to get involved in sport and would like to attend please register by telephoning Scottish Disability Sport on 0131 317 1130 or alternatively
