THE National Learning Network’s ‘Sporting Chance’ course based in Clash picked up a Cara National Inclusion Award at University of Limerick on Monday night.
“To be recognised nationally is fantastic, the students deserve it they’ve worked very hard,” said course co-ordinator Kevin Smith.
The course aims to enable people with disabilities – and others who are unable to access further education – to build a career as future coaches, leaders and managers in the sports and leisure industry.
The Tralee course won in the Best Disability Organisation category which was one of nine on offer.
Students of the course have worked with the FAI providing referees, linesmen and administration for primary school’s finals, they are also involved with Munster Rugby as coaches for tag rugby.
The CARA National Inclusion Awards recognise organisations and people who contribute to the inclusion of people with disabilities in sport.
