WELCOME. Team United is an award winning charity.
We aim to support young people with disabilities overcome social barriers they often face when taking part in sport and physical activity, particularly team sports. We focus on supporting young people aged 8-16 years with Autism but not exclusively. We offer a range of sports or physical activity and are always listening to young people so we can offer more opportunities. Whether it is Football, Athletics, Dance or you are a budding Actor in the making, have a look at our website.
We offer young people the opportunity to take part in a player pathway that offers a number of components and opportunities such as weekly sports or activity instruction, social activities and an awards scheme and social outings. We focus our attention on knowing as much as we can about each of our young people, we use their chosen sport as the motivator to break down social barriers and get them playing together as a team. We listen to young people and allow them to be heard amongst their peer group. More importantly, being active and enjoying taking part.
As we have trained and knowledgeable coaching and support staff in every session, young people know their needs will be understood.
Our approach enables young people the opportunity to gain confidence, connect with their team mates and celebrate their achievements in a supported environment.
We work with a number of partners at a local level to enhance the opportunities for young people, so there is a transition route and a sense of belonging in their community.
Currently recruiting players, Premiership and grassroot clubs for the league.
