SportInspired works with sports clubs to increase participation, build capacity and develop connections in their communities
In every community, we find a number of unsung heroes in our sports coaches. Our SportInspired Games programmes work with these coaches to celebrate and promote what they do, increasing participation in their sport and helping make new connections within their communities. The SportInspired Games programme is devised to bring together the hidden superpowers in our communities. Our inspiring sports festival is the opening chapter which connects children with a world of opportunities, which they will continue to enjoy long after the festival is over. Even the least sporty and confident children find a sport they can connect with. Following on from our inspiring launch, we work together to ensure longevity. This includes a variety of promotional and developmental activities, including brokering new relationships between sports clubs and schools. As a result, links between school sport and community sport are strengthened, providing more profile and support for current opportunities and creating new ones where needed. If you are a sports club and are interested in working with us, we'd love to hear from you.
SportInspired’s projects are worthwhile because they inspire the community to find out what clubs are on offer to them, help clubs to promote our services and recruit new members… we’ve now managed to get boys involved in netball
SportInspired’s Community Games provide a critical solution for community sports clubs – a way to access talented volunteers and new members… less kids will fall through the net into trouble
We work with SportInspired because they know how to deliver for the community and for corporates.
When I did 10 metres I felt great. I felt really happy when I did my 250. Everyone says “Well done” and “That’s great Lewis” and that makes me feel happy. It’s like an achievement of my life. It’s one of the best things I've ever done.
SportInspired’s Games aren’t just about having a fantastic day. It is great for business and delivers a foundation for promoting sports participation and accessing sport in the community, leaving a tangible and sustainable legacy we can all be proud of.!
You see the kids coming in and some of them are as quiet as anything, withdrawn, and they go out and they are maybe six inches taller than they were when they came in, you know, just on a complete high.
SportInspired’s approach has provided the Council with a platform that brings all key stakeholders together and helps us to align our projects and initiatives. In a recent Games programme, 92% of the 900 young people stated they were more likely to take up sport, had improved their team working skills, and had more confidence.
I want to say how pleased me and my husband are about all the opportunities you have given my boy. He is really proud of himself and we are really proud of him as well.
Through working with SportInspired, I have gained many local contacts with schools, community clubs and local community. SportInspired has played a key role in helping to lay down a clear pathway to the community that will help further develop and inspire our children. Thames View Junior School has welcomed this with open arms, and so have many other schools in the Borough.
The games are great! It gives young people the opportunity to try a number of different sports and that is key. It has really raised the awareness of basketball in the community and has helped our school programmes grow from strength to strength.
I had fun with my friends and it was the best day of my whole life!
I deal with a lot of difficult customers on the phone, and whenever I get a difficult customer I just think of the day I was there and how happy the kids were.
Thanks for the amazing opportunity, the students loved it, and will remember it for a long time.
“SportInspired has become a key partner in the delivery of a lasting legacy of sports with our School Sports Partnership and its member schools. They clearly understand the needs of schools and young people when delivering their programmes, which are of the highest quality. We welcome any future involvement with the organisation and its employees, in helping to inspire a generation.”
