Sky Blues in the Community is committed to providing opportunities to children and adults with a disability to play football within Coventry and Warwickshire. We have been successfully providing disability football coaching since 2008.
The Sky Blues disability football offer started in 2008, when we were successful with a funding application to the Football Foundation to the value of £164,916 to provide a three year programme throughout Coventry and Warwickshire to provide free school time football coaching/activities in SEN Schools in the area.
Part of the project was to provide exit routes for disabled footballers outside of the school environment, this was achieved by opening an Ability Counts football centre at Henley College and forming adult, U16 and U12 teams to represent Sky Blues in the Community in the Birmingham Ability Counts League.
Since the award of this initial grant, our disability offer has increased dramatically and we now deliver sessions for specific disabilities, holiday courses, adults activities and regularly take part in regional and national festivals and competitions, offering our participants the chance to represent Coventry City Football Club.
Sky Blues in the Community work with a number of partners to create opportunities for children and adults with a disability to play football. For details on disability specific activities delivered by the Sky Blues team, please see the dropdown menu for further information.
