Tae Kwon Do for Children with a Disability

Waterford Sports Partnership is currently recruiting children with a disability to take part in a 6 week Tae-Kwan-Do Programme. The Tae Kwan Do programme was designed by Waterford Sports Partnership and Dungarvan Tae Kwan Do Club and is funded by the HSE.

The aim of the programme is to give children with a disability such as ADHD, Dyspraxia, Cerebral Palsy, Motor Coordination Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder etc. an opportunity to try out Tae Kwan Do in a safe and structured environment.

The six week programme will commence with a FREE “Come and Try it” session which will take place on Thursday 31st January in St. Lawrence's Hall, Ballinroad, from 5-6pm.

Following the Come and Try it session, participants will be encouraged to take part in five weekly Tae Kwan Do sessions, where they will learn all the fundamental skills at a cost of €3 per child per session. The children will all progress at their own pace at these sessions and whilst some may feel ready to move on to a mainstream group, others may not wish to do so and are encouraged to continue taking part in their current class. Tae Kwan Do was chosen as a sport suitable for children with a disability due to the structure and repetitive learning process. Many of the routines are repeated and built upon in the session. The children will be encouraged to participate to their fullest at their own level of ability.

If your child is interested in taking part in this programme please contact Pauline Cunningham, Sports Development Officer, Waterford Sports Partnership on 058 -21199 or email
