Sport & Exercise Science students work with visually impaired pupils from New College Worcester… 16th May 2017

For their latest unit, ‘Exercise for Specific Groups’, Year 2 Sport and Exercise Science students have been working with pupils from a Worcester residential school.

Over a period of six weeks our students worked with pupils from New College Worcester, which is a national residential school for young people aged 11 – 19 who are blind or visually impaired.

 The students worked with a group of Year 7 students and delivered sessions including volleyball, football and basketball, leading their sessions by adapting the sports equipment.

For volleyball a rice filled balloon was used to establish its location. For football the students used bell balls, where players use the sound of the bell to judge the position and movement of the ball. The rules were also adapted so that they were in line with Goalball rules – a team sport specifically designed for blind athletes.
