What if someone approaches you without potential?

  • Is everyone in your club an Olympic Rower?
slide13

What if you aren’t sure how to integrate someone/don’t have the right equipment?

  • Ask for advice – Me, or British Rowing
  • Get them started on an ergo
    • – BUCS Indoor events
  • Explore the option of loan equipment
  • Apply for a grant

It does not have to be labour intensive or expensive!

Final Thoughts

  • Hopefully you know who to contact! – ME!
  • Hopefully you are more open to someone with a disability joining your club
  • Hopefully we can change this statistic:

173,379 people with a disability in British Universities

Less than 1% involved in sport
