Record entry for this year’s Lothian Sportshall Athletics Festival

Thursday 4th February saw 175 young people descend on West Lothian College to participate in the annual Lothian Disability Schools Sportshall Athletics Festival, with schools coming from all over the Lothian area and also the Borders.  The event provides an excellent platform for the primary and secondary aged school pupils to try run, jump and throw activities in a friendly and encouraging environment with many youngsters trying the sport for the very first time.  However, the more experienced athletes are given the opportunity to excel in events such as soft javelin, speed bounce and hi stepper with the incentive of qualifying to represent the Lothian region at the Scottish Disability Sport National event, held in March.

West Lothian College again welcomed the masses and were extremely accommodating in the lead up and on the day of the event, providing the opportunity to try out their newly refurbished sports hall.  The event is now a staple within the LDS calendar of events and is an excellent model of collaborative working with a number of key partners, including Lothian Disability Sport, Sports Development & Active School West Lothian, Scottish Athletics and of course WL College.  The event benefits from this close partnership working with disability inclusion and adapted sportshall training being delivered to the students prior to the event.  A tremendous number of 30 students were present to support and encourage the young people throughout and this was a hit with the school pupils and staff alike, with one teacher commenting ‘the students were fantastic with the pupils – they were so helpful, patient and encouraging’.

 The National event will be held at Grangemouth Sports Complex on Wednesday 3rd March and the young people selected to represent Lothian will be aiming to better their third place finish from last year.
