​LimbPower Launches Athletics Top Tips Infographic for Children and Families with Limb Differences

Posted by LimbPowerAdmin on Monday 18th December 2023

This ground-breaking infographic serves as a valuable tool for children and families seeking information on engaging in athletics. It provides essential guidance on where to start, whom to contact, and the crucial questions to ask. Additionally, it offers insights into the prosthetic equipment and adaptations required, as well as specialised athletics equipment and adaptations that can be utilised.

Recognising the varied facets of athletics, the infographic covers the most common disciplines. By illustrating the fun and excitement inherent in these activities—incorporating running, jumping, and throwing—the resource highlights fundamental skills integral to a myriad of other sports.

"We're thrilled to launch this initiative in collaboration with esteemed partners," said Kiera Roche, spokesperson for LimbPower. "Athletics is not just a sport; it's an avenue for empowerment and inclusion. This infographic aims to inspire and inform children and families about the possibilities within athletics, regardless of physical differences."

LimbPower encourages individuals to connect with their local athletics clubs, fostering a supportive community for participation. Contact your local athletics club via the following links:
