Testimonials

"ASA has shown me that thinking you cant participate is a state of mind, thinking you cant succeed is not an option, but above all else sport can bring us all together no matter what our abilities not disabilities are." Danielle Joyce, Deaflympics swimming team

"International success would not be possible without local support." Jamie McCowan, GB Boccia squad

Having worked with Ayrshire Sportsability since the beginning, and having several hundred Sports and Fitness student assist at every event, I can honestly say that this is the highlight of the whole student experience for many of these students. John McTaggart, Sport Lecturer, Ayrshire College
