At Corrib Rugby we are about Community and not only the playing community. We are about the whole community, all ages, all backgrounds, all types of sports, everyone, everyone that lives in our community. As part of this vision of inclusion we wish to promote opportunities for people with a disability to access the game.
The IRFU is currently working with the Irish Wheelchair Association, Vision Sport Ireland and Deaf Sport Ireland to promote participation in rugby for players with a sensory and physical disability. The IRFU are committed to make the game as inclusive as possible. To this end they have been working with provisional clubs to provide training and resources. For more information please see https://irfu-admin.soticcloud.net/playing-the-game/spirit-of-rugby/disability-rugby/
At Corrib Rugby we have identified 5 coaching volunteers who have volunteered to be available to provide this program and at this point we wish to determine if there is an appetite in our community for this. We would be looking to start in September 2021 should there be sufficient interest and it is envisioned that we will run on Saturday mornings alongside the Minis Rugby.
If anybody has any questions or they are interested in attending, if they could please contact Stephen Kelly at 086 8031239 or firstname.lastname@example.org
