SY Disability Mentor Identified

Posted on 28/10/10

To drive the disability provision and inclusion by the network clubs forward, the South Yorkshire Athletics Network group felt a Disability mentor was essential.
On Thursday 28th of October 2010, Ashley Little, South Yorkshire Athletics Network Development Officer, approached Diana Stanger of Doncaster AC to be the South Yorkshire Disability mentor—and she said yes.
Diana has a lot of experience with coaching disabled athletes, and is the lead coach of disability sessions at Doncaster AC, and the Network are grateful of her acceptance to be the county mentor.
Diana's role will involve supporting the other network clubs to ensure inclusivity in line with club mark, as well as supporting club coaches increase their confidence in coaching disabled athletes.
A big welcome and thank you to Diana, who will be undertaking this role as well as her existing coaching, and all as a volunteer!
