Nova visit schools, colleges and community groups to introduce disabled and non-disabled individuals to new, accessible sports. The sessions may be individual taster sessions or delivered as a programme of activity.
Sensory Sport stories are primarily delivered in specialist schools for children with high sensory needs. Across the story, participants get to experience the feels, sounds, tastes and smells of activities they might otherwise not be able to access.
Children are taken to the Alps to (literally) go skiing, head to Wimbledon for a spot of tennis and strawberries, or smell the intensity of a deep-heat-fuelled rugby changing room before a big game.
Other sports that students can experience include skateboarding, beach volleyball, Formula 1 and more!
Sensory sport is a very specialist offer which has had exceptional feedback from schools, teachers and parents.
It has even been used as an adaptive version of a traditional 'sports day' for students!
We are able to provide organisation and management of events, competitions and sports days for schools, colleges and more. These can be across a range of different sports including athletics, boccia and wheelchair basketball.
Our specialist sports equipment also helps support mainstream sports days for individual students.
Holiday Activity Offer
Nova provide unique opportunities for fun, inclusive sports activity outside of school term-time. A variety of sports are often available for booking including multisports, tennis, frame running and wheelchair basketball.
Nova Sports provides holiday activities because we know that people with disabilities are likely to have less opportunities to be physically active - particularly outside of school or college.
Depending on the activity, sessions may be suitable for different young people with different needs.
The huge variety of activities that we offer enable young people and their siblings to attend together - something we know is hugely popular with many families.
The days are valuable for children to enjoy their holiday breaks away from school, and also offer key respite to parents and carers.
