on October 20 from 2.30 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. (Central European time)
A series of portraits and instruction videos about playing sports with a visual disability, made in the Netherlands and provided with English subtitles and voice-over, will be presented online.
Playing sports improves the physical and mental condition of people. In addition, sports also means: coming into contact with other people, sharing a passion, exploring your limits, participating and above all having fun.
The objective of the developed products is twofold; on the one hand to give insight into the possibilities of people with a visual disability to people involved in sports, so that they can apply these in their daily practice. On the other hand, to inspire people with visual impairment to also participate in sports.
The portraits focus on young persons with a visual disability and are aimed at all people with a visual disability and those around them. They are mainly intended to inspire and motivate visually impaired people themselves.
The instructional videos discuss adaptations that can be made for different types of sports activities, distinguishing between advice for blind and visually impaired athletes. They are mainly aimed at sports teachers, coaches and trainers and students of sports courses.
Ruud Dominicus and some young people with a visual disability from the portraits, will explain more about this product, the idea behind it, where to find it and how to use it. Ruud is a sports teacher at Visio education, and has also given training in Uganda.
