  • Need


    There are limited opportunities for disabled young people to play competitive football in Doncaster.


    By providing both participation and competitive footballing opportunities allows disabled children equal opportunity to access football

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Establish 2 competitive U16 boys football sides


    » Run regular training sessions on a Saturday morning
    » Engage with local special schools to promote the opportunities

    Success will affiliate 2 teams into the FA Ability Counts Youth League

  • Impact


    The club will become self sustainable through increased participation. Players will be able to access training opportunities to become mentors to future players


    It is challenging to get disabled participants to travel to unfamiliar venues. DRFC will work with local schools to provide in-house coaching sessions with a view to encouraging young people to the sessions


    All our projects are monitored by an online database where reports can be easily generated. Annual participation reports will be sent to donars at the close of each football season
