Photo: PHIL BARNES By PHIL BARNES ' It's that whole social network thing. It's fantastic to see the difference it has made. ' Heather Walker volunteer Opportunities for Nelson children with disabilities who want to play sport have expanded this summer with the setting up of a junior development summer skills foot- ball programme at Saxton Stadium each Tuesday. The FAV Junior Kickers pro- gramme supported by KiwiSport was set up so children who had been involved with the Fulton Hogan Junior Jammers during the winter would have sporting options to focus on during the summer months. Heather Walker, who has been actively involved as a volunteer with the basketball and the foot- ball programmes, said there were 15 players in the junior development squad ranging in age from seven to 10. She said children with dis- abilities were often excluded from mainstream sports, or if they did play, they were often left on the outside of games. However, they all felt very much included both in the junior development programmes and the Fulton Hogan basketball league which was for players 11 and over. She said being actively involved in sport and feeling that they belonged was very important for children. It's that whole social network thing. It's fantastic to see the difference it has made.'' Heather said in order for the children to feel they belonged it was necessary to break down barriers and sport was very good at helping to do that. She said people were travel- ling from as far afield as Tapa- wera to take part in these programmes which showed how enthusiastic they were to be involved. She said not all of the players who were part of the junior pro- gramme or the basketball league had disabilities as the program- mes were open to everyone. The Inclusive Sport Trust governs the league along with junior sports development programmes which it runs in partnership with the Nelson Basketball Association and Nel- son Bays Football.'' However, Heather said there were other organisations such as the Special Olympics, which,s although run independently from the Inclusive Sport Trust's programmes, offered further choices and opportunities for people in Nelson.
