Competitive cricket for young people with a disability

Super 1s is a Lord’s Taverners community programme that gives young people with a disability aged 12-25 the chance to play regular competitive cricket while improving confidence and independence. Somerset Cricket Foundation runs a number of disability cricket sessions across the county, where young people can receive coaching, and allows participants the chance to compete against their peers and enjoy the benefits of playing sport.

Taking part in Super 1s

Having fun and competing

We have weekly cricket sessions taking place in Bath, Bridgwater, Street, Taunton, Weston Super Mare & Yeovil. Super 1 sessions are weekly (term time only) aimed at young people aged 12 to 25 with mild/moderate learning difficulties, or a physical disability.

In addition, a big element of Super 1s is competition. With multiple Super 1s sessions across Somerset, we seek to bring all groups together on a regular basis (during the school holidays) so they can ‘compete’ against other Super 1s clubs in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. We hope to recognise young people’s weekly commitment by rewarding them with Super 1s T-shirts after attending a set number of sessions.

Meet the Taunton Dragons

We took some time to visit our Taunton Dragons session in full flow. Watch the video to hear from the young people involved as well as the coaches and volunteers.

Super 1s schedule of events

Super 1s sessions are free to attend and led by a qualified cricket coach and supported by staff who hold valid DBS certificates. We do not provide 1:1 support, so if a young person requires 1:1 support, this must be provided. Please see risk assessment for the Super 1s Programme. For more information on the sessions below, please do get in touch.
