If you're exploring sports coaching options for your child with autism, you've come to the right place. At Delta Sports, we understand the unique needs and abilities of children on the autism spectrum, and we're dedicated to providing a supportive and inclusive environment where every child can thrive.

From our expertise in working with children with autism to the range of sports we offer, including football, tag rugby, netball, and cricket, we'll explore how Delta can provide your child with the support, encouragement, and opportunities they need to flourish.

Understanding Autism

As we’re aware you will know, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a condition affecting social interaction, communication, and behaviour. It varies widely in its presentation and severity among individuals.

But did you know, physical activity is vital for children with autism, promoting motor skills, coordination, and sensory integration? Sports also offer opportunities for social interaction and teamwork, addressing challenges in these areas for children with autism.

At Delta Sports Coaching, we provide tailored support and encouragement, helping children with autism develop skills and confidence. Through structured activities and positive reinforcement, coaching programs, we cultivate inclusion and joy for children with autism.

What We Offer

Football: Playing football helps develop social skills and coordination, as children learn to communicate, cooperate, and work as a team while engaging in physical activity.

Tag Rugby: Tag rugby encourages teamwork and communication as children strategise, pass the ball, and work together to achieve a common goal, gaining cooperation and social interaction.

Netball: Netball enhances spatial awareness and motor skills as children navigate the court, pass the ball, and make quick decisions, improving coordination and cognitive abilities.

Cricket: Cricket fosters focus and strategic thinking as children analyse the game, anticipate moves, and make strategic decisions, promoting concentration and problem-solving skills.
