Watersports Inclusion Spotlight Series

Cork Sports Partnership has had a strong relationship with watersport activity providers for many years. The inclusion section in particular has gone from strength to strength and CSP is keen to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work done by all partnering organisations, to ensure they cater for people with disabilities.

The watersports inclusion collaboration between Cork Sports Partnership, Sailability, Kinsale Outdooe Education Center, Surf2heal, and Sailing into Wellness allows people with disabilities and their families to experience sports that they may have known were accessible to them.

The watersport inclusion programmes, which are regularly accessed by general public, schools, youth groups, disability services and schools, showcase how inclusive watersport has become accessible in Cork and the many adaptations of equipment, along with trained staff allow for more opportunities.

Speaking about the watersport inclusion programme, Cliona Horan, Sports Inclusion Disability Officer with Cork Sports Partnership said “Watersports inclusion has become very popular, we’ve had family days, summer camps and summer programmes. We want to make it more sustainable and create these opportunities all year round.”

The Watersport Inclusion Spotlight Video Series seeks to raise the profile of watersports inclusion in Cork by increasing awareness of existing opportunities in Kinsale, as well as inspiring additional watersport providers to consider becoming more inclusion, as you can see from the following videos, the possibilities are endless!

The campaign will focus on a number of areas including:

  • A video series to highlight and promote watersports inclusion programmes in Kinsale. (Watersports Inclusion Video Series.)
  • Highlights from previous watersport inclusion events and initiatives (Watersports Inclusion Days.)
