STANLEY WHEELERS AND WOBBLERS Proposal Members of the Wheelers and Wobblers group prepare a video that demonstrates the playing of a selection of paralympic sports. The featured sports would be familiar to the group e.g. boccia. This video would form part of our sports exhibition and would run, on a loop system, throughout the duration of the exhibition.
Outcomes for the group To help celebrate their 21st anniversary by presenting their achievements as a sports group to a wider community To demonstrate their expertise to a wider audience To provide an opportunity to experience sport in a different context i.e. opportunity to develop planning and presentational skills
Outcomes for NCM to encourage and inspire exhibition visitors to try the new sports to develop visitors understanding of how sport can support health and well being to provoke an awareness of the sense of challenge and achievement experienced by those who play sport at all levels.
