A LOCAL sports club, DizzKidz, aimed at providing various sporting activities for children with co-ordination difficulties is calling for more volunteers.

DizzKidz is a branch of the Dyspraxia Foundation and have been running the club for over 15 years. They are based at the university and have access to an eclectic range of sporting facilities, such as trampolines and basketball offered by the Worcester Wolves Coaching team.

Local co-ordinator, Helen Lippitt said: “These children often find the more competitive sports clubs difficult as they find themselves unable to achieve the same levels, so being taught in small groups or one to one is important for them not to be disheartened by their disability.”

The club offers placements to university sports students who coach the children as part of their disability modules. But during the school holidays when the university students go home, they find themselves desperate for extra help.

She added: “The children benefit from having more coaches. It is also helpful for them, so they can identify similar difficulties in other

children they teach.”

“We do now have our 3 coaches, but if anyone would like to help us as a volunteer we are more than happy to get as many people on board as possible to help the children.”

If you would like to volunteer or have a child that would benefit from the club, please contact Helen Lippitt at dizzkidzteenz@gmail.com.
