Introducing Frame Football

Frame Football is a new way of playing the beautiful game for children or adults who use a walker or crutches for their daily mobility. It recognises that frame users, often excluded from playing with their able bodied peers, need their own format for football.

The Gameframe® Kick is based on a wider version of the Kaye Posture Control Walker. The wider frame design makes access and retention of the ball easier. The Kick is stiffer and stronger thanks to the side folding torsion bars - designed to cope with the rigours of the game.

  • Anti-transpirant and anti-bacterial grip tape, designed to reduce vibration whilst playing. 
  • Various Wheel options.
  • Cushioned back pad and optional frame pads.

  • Optional 'Gameframes®' Water Bottle and frame mounted cage.

13902794_1085402144873979_1395809795076192616_n

On Thursday 11 August, Quest 88 attended the official launch of Cerebral Palsy Sport's new Frame Football resource at the FA's National Football Centre, St Georges Park near Burton on Trent.

Here is a short summary of what happened at the event. You can read more about the launch here!

The launch event held at St Georges Park linked in with a preparation training camp for the Great Britain Cerebral Palsy Football team, as they prepare to compete at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

'A new way to play the beautiful game' was created by Cerebral Palsy Sport to support football clubs and coaches across the country to understand the basics of Frame Football. The resource includes information on equipment, rules of the game, guidelines for coaches and example activities. It also includes information about the different types of cerebral palsy.

Cerebral Palsy Sport have developed and trialled Frame Football with lots of feedback from coaches, equipment specialists, physiotherapists, parents and the players - to create a truly player centred football opportunity. Supported by the FA's Disability Committee as a grassroots development programme, Frame Football is already gaining recognition as an inclusive adapted sport. It is ideal for those using walking/gait training equipment such as a frame or walker.
 
"We are delighted to launch our Frame Football resource 'A new way to play the beautiful game' today. We hope that the resource will provide much needed guidance to clubs, coaches, physiotherapists and parents to help get more people with cerebral palsy into the wonderful adapted sport of Frame Football".

Ali Talbot, Chief Executive of Cerebral Palsy Sport

"The Frame Football resource 'A new way to play the beautiful game' provides a great introduction to anyone looking to introduce Frame Football as a sport, and is a helpful source of advice and guidance. Sport England are delighted to be supporting this innovative adapted sport's resource to increase participation. Ongoing support can be provided to clubs, groups who want to establish Frame Football opportunities and this resource is the first phase of this."

Tom Smith, Senior Disability Manager at Sport England
