The Zone are excited to be hosting another adult fun day for adults with learning disabilities on Tuesday 13th December, 10:30am – 2pm.

The Fun Day will include football-based activities that will be adjusted to meet individual needs including those in wheelchairs. As part of the fun day, players will take part in a number of low/moderate level physical activities that are a mixture of both individual and team-based. Activities will be facilitated by a mixture of sports coaches provided by our partners The FA, The Huddersfield Community Trust and Kirklees Active Leisure.

Care has been taken to plan activities that are fully inclusive for people with learning difficulties and other associated issues surrounding visual impairment, Dyspraxia and behaviour. There will be a learning disability physio staff in attendance at the event to assist on the day.

Venue: There is FREE parking at The Zone with plenty of room for minibuses should you require a space. We also have an on-site café with plenty of seating for parents/carers who would like to attend.

Important notice to carers/organisations bringing service users

While all activities are managed and controlled by the coaches leading the event, and are pitched at a suitable level for the group, we cannot be fully responsible for the physical health of the players taking part.

As is the nature of football the intensity of the activities will be variable and players participation is completely limited by them/their carers. This said, we do make every effort to ensure that all players are included and that the level of activity is not deemed as too strenuous that it would put anyone off attending.

Carers should:

  1. Speak to staff/coaches if they have a concern over an individual.
  2. Inform coaches/staff that a service user has issues which may put them at risk in taking part in any activity.
  3. Observe service users that they are responsible for at all times.
  4. Leave the pitch or take breaks as necessary (some breaks are built into the programme)
