County Athlete Assessment Day (CAAD)

Aad Kwakkelstein instructs some athletes on how to play table tennisOn Friday the 10th June Bedford Borough Council Sports Development team organised the 3rd annual Bedfordshire County Athlete assessment day (CAAD) at Bedford International Athletic Stadium. The event is part of a national “Playground to Podium” initiative that offers a series of targeted interventions aimed at helping young disabled people with varying impairments and support needs progress from PE and community sport to high-level performance and competition.

Each young person got the opportunity to take part in sport specific sessions delivered by top National coaches and over 30 young people from across Bedfordshire got the opportunity to be assessed in four sports (Wheelchair basketball, Football, Table Tennis and Athletics)

Coach2Spin were pleased to be invited by Aad Kwakkelstein, ETTA Eastern Region Disability Officer, to help assist with the table tennis coaching and everyone had a great time.
