Additionally, each sport governing body have their own set of guidelines for their specific sports.

CP Sport events and activities are anticipated to commence in the summer. The National CP Football League committee are aiming for summer activity for league teams and more information will be shared once confirmed and agreed by the committee. All other sport events once finalised will be in our events calendar https://www.cpsport.org/events/?summary=all  and we are also looking forward to working in partnership with many more organisations and sport national governing bodies this year to bring even more opportunities for people with cerebral palsy.  

Clubs providing sport and physical activity are also invited to register for our new club finder, and can find the CP Sport Club Finder Agreement here. A member of the club will need to sign up to its free Coach and Officials or Volunteers Membership here. For more information about the club finder contact richard.kerr@cpsport.org  

For adults with cerebral palsy looking to start or revisit their healthy habits Cerebral Palsy Sport and Adult CP Hub have created a 12 week programme starting on 19th April. It is aimed at those who want a more general activity programme to get moving this spring. Expert guidance and support from both organisations will help participants progress through the challenge, celebrate the successes and motivate through the stumbles to develop healthy habits. People can register their interest and find out more here: https://www.cpsport.org/events/?category=Sport%20Events
