Who can be a Lakers Member?
Lakers is a Sport and Recreational Club for people with intellectual disabilities. You can become a member from age 5 years and up. We run a vast array of sports and activities for our members from September to June annually. You can be thumping to a beat at our drumming class one day and then swishing down a ski slope the next. Arts, Drama, Cookery, Music Therapy and Pottery classes are also available for anyone wishing to get in touch with their inner self.
What does becoming a member mean?
Lakers provides an invaluable community and support network, both for members and for their friends and family. Joining our various activities as part of a team or group will help to develop social skills and bring out individual personalities and abilities. Our members have found our activities a brilliant place to make friends, find new interests, develop new skills and try new things for the first time, in a safe supported environment.
We are affiliated to Special Olympics Ireland and compete at Area, Regional and National Special Olympic Games. We have also had members successfully represent Ireland at European and World Special Olympic Games. To compete in a Special Olympics sport a member must be registered with Special Olympics, please contact us for the form.
At Lakers we organise family trips both in Ireland and abroad. These have proven to be very popular with our members with numbers participating increasing each year.
