GOGA Wrexham

Welcome to Wrexham’s Get Out Get Active page on the Disability Sport Wales Website. My name is Terri Ritchie and I am the Get Out Get Active (GOGA) Activator for Wrexham.

 

GOGA in Wrexham

The GOGA project in Wrexham aims to get disabled and inactive females into sport and active recreation through fun, new and sociable activities across Wrexham. Over the three years, GOGA in Wrexham wants to inspire females to take part in physical activity, provide inclusive and exciting new opportunities as well as offering the chance to volunteer and upskill themselves through training.

 

Who can get involved with GOGA?

We welcome all females that would like to part in sport or physical activity whether you have impairment, lack of confidence or no experience in physical activity. The project wants everyone to be active together and so this is what we aim to do. Through GOGA we want to provide a range of inclusive activities that can be accessible and inclusive to anyone. 

If you’re not too sure on participating or playing sport, GOGA in Wrexham can also offer volunteering and training opportunities that can help confidence and sociability within sport. Please get in touch to find out about some of these opportunities if you’re interested.
