Active Stirling recently hosted its annual SportAbility Fun In Athletics event at The PEAK, Stirling Sports Village, on Wednesday 7 February.

The SportAbility programme, managed by Active Stirling and funded by Sportscotland, aims to foster a love for sports and physical activity among young children in Stirling schools.

Over 60 school children from 13 local schools in the Stirling Council area participated in the event, which featured a variety of athletic activities organised in a decathlon-style format. Children rotated through stations, engaging in different athletic disciplines such as running, jumping, and throwing. The event underscored the significance of sports and physical activity for young people, particularly for those with disabilities and additional support needs, by providing every school child the chance to actively participate in enjoyable extracurricular activities.

Participants relished activities like the standing long jump, target throw, shuttle run, chest push, high stepper, speed bounce, soft javelin, and relays, showcasing their enthusiasm for various sports.

Here are a few standout moments from the event.
