The aim of DSActive is to provide children and young adults with Down's syndrome (DS) a fair opportunity to get involved in sports, the emphasis being on football. The programme was formed in 2006 and has continued to grow ever since.
The DSActive programme set out, and has so
far succeeded, in offering these individuals a chance to participate in football at a level in which they are comfortable, hugely increasing the satisfaction from sport of the participants
and their parents alike.
More impressively, the programme has offered football to many individuals who previously had limited sporting options.
