Saracens - An extraordinary Club within a Club

An extraordinary Club within a Club

The Sarrie’s Skills Club is an out of school sports club for young people with autism. For one of our participants, the club has given him the opportunity he needs to utilise his energy.

Guy is 13 and has a complex (severe) form of ADHD, he has been a member of Sarrie’s Skills Club since April, and he has discovered a love for Rugby and in particular Saracens.

Due to Guy’s condition his sleep pattern is very sporadic which can affect his behaviour which takes its toll on his parents. However, Guy’s mum and dad have noticed a huge difference and recently told us “since starting Sarrie’s Skills Club, Guy’s sleeping patterns have drastically improved, he now sleep’s right through to 6:30am on a Tuesday”. This sleep is not only crucial to Guy but also to both of his Parents for a well-deserved rest.

Guy works harder at school to get good daily reports so that he will then be given his reward of going to his Monday night club. For Guy, it is the treat of the week knowing that he comes to Saracens on a Monday afternoon. To see our latest Sarrie’s Skills Club video here.
