    The part I really liked was the quote: "It’s not theatre for us, it is actual training, training in the academy". Only too often, working out for kids with disabilities is treated as something 'soft'. But what these kids really need is feeling the stress of real training as a team with specific goals.

    My son quit football and now trains as a runner. In the stadium where he trains there is also a club for disabled children. There was one particular little blind girl whose personal trainer shocked me initially. He pushed the little girl beyond what I thought were the reasonable limits of her condition. Again and again, he made her jump, run, run faster, follow his lead, with the lack of mercy of a Nazi officer. But soon I realized that this was precisely what the girl wanted. The joy on her face when the trainer told her that she had surpassed her previous time was revealing.

    Pity it's not standard practice for all clubs.
