In this edition of the DSActive Roadshow, Scott and Matt visited one of just two community clubs within the DSActive programme, Moorside Rangers of Manchester. Moorside launched their team in early 2012 and attracted a quite staggering 35 players, with over 60 players having currently registered since. The team, which is run by a large network of volunteers, has been such a success that they separate into two groups at each training session.
This season, DSActive are travelling the length and breadth of England and Wales to catch up with all our DSActive teams in action. The ‘DSActive Roadshow’ will be recorded at every leg of its journey and the DSActive Sports Manager & Officer (Scott & Matt) will be asking the coaches, parents and most importantly, the players about all the positive experiences they have enjoyed since joining their DSActive team.
The DSActive programme has become the 100th sporting organisation to be ‘adopted’ by Interactive, a London based scheme setup by Mayor Boris Johnson in order to ensure disabled people within London have access to sport.
