CPISRA Academy & Camps : New Initiative

CPISRA is developing an Academy model as well as residential camps. Academy programmes and Camps will be Sport, Recreation/Activity and/or Personal Development based. Camps may include all three categories. Camps will be carefully tailored and structured and develop the person as well as the athlete.


Over time CPISRA plan to introduce a range of Camps , such as :

  • Introducing individuals with Cerebral Palsy to Sport and Recreation.
  • Preparing Talented athletes to be Elite athletes
  • Summer Activity/Recreation Camps.
  • Helping Elite Athletes to cope with life after International competition.
  • Encourage mature individuals with Cerebral Palsy to participate in Sport and Recreation.
  • Intensive Sport Training, one sport or related groups of sports.

Camps Research

 Analysis of CPISRA Camps Questionnaire

  1. Should CPISRA hold and encourage international sports and/or activity camps?
  2. If so what sort of camps? 

To answer these questions CPISRA conducted an online questionnaire/survey at the end of 2017. The analysis of the responses is now complete and the overwhelming response was YES to Camps.

This questionnaire was part of research that CPISRA carried out into the demand for sports camps and recreational activity camps for individuals with Cerebral Palsy or other neurological conditions. It also looked at individuals’ participation in sports and recreation. We are extremely grateful to all the people that participated in the survey.

The reports and analysis of the responses to the questionnaire/survey are below:
