A pretty good couple of weeks for York St John Goalball Club to say the least!
Following on from the novice team's success in achieving bronze in the Novice Shield, the intermediate team secured third place in the Northern Division in the final game of the regular season. Great effort in our 1st full season back. Well done to all the teams #goalball— YorkStJohnGoalball (@YsjGoalball) April 10, 2022

#WhoSays people cannot be active through goalball?
Young disabled people should sit out of PE lessons.— Activity Alliance (@AllForActivity) April 13, 2022
Disabled people can't be leaders.
Disabled children can't grow up to be active adults.
Families can't be active together. #WhoSays?
