Enrich your child’s physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing at an IWA Sports camp.

At Irish Wheelchair Association Sports Camps in Clontarf, we create an inclusive, welcoming environment for children to enjoy sports, try new activities, develop their skills and make new friends.

Our multi-activity sports camps give children aged 4–12 the chance to play sports and games, including Soccer, Foam Polo, Parachute Games, Archery, GAA, Rounders, Tag Rugby, Badminton, Table Tennis, Athletics, Basketball, Unihockey, Obstacle Course and much more. 

Activities are suitable for kids of varying levels of ability and all participants get the opportunity to experience wheelchair sports.

Playing wheelchair sports provides an opportunity to learn, understand and raise awareness of our wonderful sports in an interactive and fun way.

The safety and wellbeing of your children are our top priority: our team of energetic, dedicated, highly-qualified instructors in our Clontarf sports centre, have a strong track record in sports education and coaching. Some have trained Paralympic competitors.

They are certified with Sport Ireland Safeguarding Training and they co-ordinate supervised camps that combine fun with valuable sports education.

Give your children the chance to spend their school holidays enjoying fun sporting activities in a safe, nurturing environment. 

“As a parent I want my children to have fun at summer camps and, if possible, to learn something. The great strength of the IWA camps is that they achieve both of these things. Children who attend the camps are challenged physically and socially but in an environment that prioritises their enjoyment. They come to understand that ability exists on a broad spectrum and have their perceptions of what it means to be competent and capable challenged across a wide range of activities. Above all, they are given a different lens through which to look at themselves and their friends, old and new. I can think of no better way for children to spend their time.”
