School Sport Clubs provide the opportunity for young people to participate in a club environment they set up and run for themselves. The clubs are designed to create a unique environment which develops a sense of ownership and belonging for all young people who attend whether as a player or as a volunteer.
The clubs have been set up at primary, secondary and special schools around the country. Run by schools, they position young people at the centre and provide an introductory experience for all pupils, regardless of ability.
There are three main types of clubs:
- Multi-Sport Disability Clubs which are designed to provide young disabled people with an opportunity to get involved in disability and modified sports, providing a pathwat into community sport clubs and professional clubs.
- Secondary School Sport Clubs are designed to enhance and develop schools offer in a range of sports, with young people creating and running them.
- Transition Clubs are targeted at Years 5, 6 and 7 (age 9-12), to support the transition from a multi-skilled approach to sport into a sport-specific environment. The clubs also offer support for Year 6 (age 10-11) pupils moving from primary to secondary Schools.
Support packages containing resources and training are available to help young people set up and run their clubs.
