My son struggles with athletics during the hayfever season and in the winter when it is very cold. We approached his school sports department if they could help to improve his fitness after they pointed out his 'lack of fintess' infront of his class. His school is known for excellence in sports, yet his sports teacher informed us that he cannot tailor school sports to suit the requirements of an asthmatic.
Last year, despite having been immunised, he caught whooping cough. We were incredibly fortunate to find an independent trainer outside of school ,who worked with our son to improve his fitness during the summer holidays last year. Unfortunately upon returning to school, he got a chest infection and lost everything he gained. He is frequently teased at school for his lack of sporting prowess. It is hard to maintain consistency or build on any improvements he makes without support from school. Has anyone encountered and overcome such difficulties?
