This is our Watersports programme for young people aged 16+ with social communication needs. It is scheduled from June to November 2022, and is organised by Action-attainment and run by Active 360. We recognise that a bit more support, smaller groups and understanding coaches can help people get started and progress with sport.

Meeting Point: Brentford Canal, off Commerce Road, Brentford, TW8 8GA, meeting point outside the Cafe at the Holiday Inn. We then walk over to Active 360's base at Paddlers Avenue, when participants have arrived.

Dates: Tuesday afternoons. Summer dates from June to August, can be downloaded here: https://www.action-attainment.com/holiday-weekly-sport/sport-timetables/

Session times: Tuesdays 4-6pm (7th June-19th July and 30th August) Break for Summer Holidays (20th July-29th August)

Group sizes: 7 participants maximum in a group, and a minimum of 4 participants who will have booked and paid for the sessions in advance. This is required in order for a session to be booked and confirmed.

The groups are kept small, and a timetable of what will be happening can be sent to participants in advance of joining, if they are unsure about what to expect. Application forms are shared with A-a and Active 360 in advance of young people joining the programme so staff are aware of their needs and how to best support them on the course.
