Morgan Woods

Morgan has always loved sport.  He watched any type of sport he could, from football to darts.  However, it was difficult for his mum to find a club that would let him have a go.  As soon as she explained he used a wheelchair, the knock-backs would come.

When Morgan was in Year 6, his class teacher encouraged him to get involved in Inclusion Sport and made contact with a new club starting in Worthing called "Star".  Morgan went along and loved it.  He got to take part in sports like boccia, tennis and football.

It wasn't long before Morgan was representing the school in sporting events for children with disabilities.  His first event was a boccia competition at Worthing Leisure Centre and the Vale team won.  Since that first victory, Inclusion Sports have grown and grown at the school.

Morgan then progressed to wheelchair racing and joined a local club.  After 7 months of training he had his first wheelchair competition at the Weir Archer Academy.  Although Morgan didn't do as well as he had hoped, he was noticed by the coaches at the Academy and 3 months later Morgan was invited for a training day at the Academy.  At the end of the day he was invited to join the Academy and train with David Weir, the para-olympian athlete. 

Morgan has not looked back and is loving his new sport.  Here at Vale School, we are very proud of his achievements.
