Disability and Inclusiveness in Schools
Baseball and softball are very accessible sports. People with hearing, visual impairments, physical or mobility issues and those with learning difficulties can often take part in the sports without modification. Adaptations to the rules are rarely required and accommodation for disabled participants is easily made. The nature of softball as a co-ed sport means that it is unusually progressive in its approach to inclusion and open access, with a keener focus on participation than on performance. This eases many of the obstacles that might be associated with disability participation in some other sports.
BSUK is committed to delivering programming for all and as such is working in each of our priority regions to develop opportunities available to disabled people.
