Who is Making Sport Fit for?
Individuals, Groups, Schools and Sports Clubs – everyone who has an aspiration to get involved with or who can support others to engage with sport or physical activity. Sports Clubs can also benefit from a range of services.
What can you do for me during the COVID-19 crisis?
Making Sport Fit are still open and keeping busy updating our website, resources etc. We have been learning how to use zoom and have purchased new equipment to make this easier so we can offer online consultations/sessions. An online sports sessions cannot be exactly the same experience as a physical face-to-face session but we can still offer ideas and demonstrate/support you to support the person you look after. We are currently putting together some more accessible packages – ask us for more information, we genuinely want to help you.
Is there an age limit?
No. Making Sport Fit can provide services to both children and adults
Can Making Sport Fit support me or my son/daughter/family member if I/they have additional needs?
Yes we can. We can work with clients who, for example, have physical, learning or sensory disabilities including those who have profound and complex needs. For all needs, we would have an in-depth conversation prior to any confirmed booking to identify specific requirements and how we can support them. We were also recently awarded funding to purchase some great communication aids e.g. Boardmaker, BIG Step switches and pillow switches because we understand the importance of independence when communicating.
What does a typical session look like?
Making Sport Fit is unique because we don’t assume a standard session of one size that fits all. Both individual and group sessions are tailored to fit the needs of specific clients – that’s what we are all about!
Why don’t Making Sport Fit generally host public sessions where you can just turn up?
Extensive sports development experience, particularly in disability sport, tells us that this doesn’t work well for targeted groups. We know there are many children and adults in our communities who fit the criteria to attend public sessions but for a variety of reasons/barriers, they don’t attend or don’t attend regularly enough to make this model financially viable. Therefore, our approach is that we will deliver a closed group session for any organisation if they identify the clients to attend, arrange the venue etc. Similarly, if you would like a one-to-one session for your son/daughter and have a suitable venue for the corresponding activity to take place (including your home if appropriate), we will come to you. Making Sport Fit will attend with equipment and deliver a planned session after a chat with you to understand participant needs. Our Jogscotland groups in Scone are the only exception to this rule at the moment.
You have a list of services on the website – is this everything you do?
No! In fact anything delivered to date probably hasn’t been advertised as a particular service but has been a response to very specific requests. So don’t be put off – the website outlines a general overview of the types of services we offer but everything can be considered.
Is Perth & Kinross the only area you work in?
Perth & Kinross is where we are based but we are happy to work in other areas too for most of our services, so please do get in touch.
