Canterbury City FC add a DSActive session to their disability programme

Canterbury City Football Club is the latest football club to join the DSActive club! Canterbury City FC is a club who have firmly embedded themselves as a key part of the city’s community.

They’ve just launched their DSActive session with the help of 21 Together, one of our affiliated support groups based in the Kent area.

The DSActive team dropped in on their second training session to see how they were getting on.

The sessions are run in the sports hall at Canterbury College and are the latest edition to the excellent disability programme run by Canterbury City FC.  All of the coaches at the club are volunteers and work really hard to provide the best possible sessions for the participants.

As it was only their second session, it was great to see six players turning up all smiling and looking forward to their evening’s practice. The session started with a warm up and then went in to an obstacle course to improve footwork, balance and coordination – all important skills in football. Once everyone had warmed up there was a drill to practice dribbling skills, with players having to dribble in and out of the cones whilst keeping the ball under close control. To finish the session, everyone got involved in a match which was very competitive and there were some fantastic goals.

If you live in the Kent area and would like to attend the sessions then please email Tony Newington to find out more or click here.
