Sports development

Activity in schools

Much of the work of the team focuses on young people and therefore coaching often takes place in schools during curricular and extra-curricular time (breakfast clubs before school, lunch times or after school sessions).

This could be used to provide cover for planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) time.

Schools can contact the team for more information on what is available and costs; free taster sessions can be arranged.

The sports development officer can also provide support to schools in accessing funding for coaching, equipment and sports-related projects.
