Sport Festival Inspires Youngsters to Find Their Sport Passion

Sport Inspired

Yesterday, together with SportInspired, we held a Sport Festival in partnership with local schools in Basildon. The day-long event was delivered at the Basildon Sporting Village and involved 176 children supported by 34 young leaders and 7 volunteers including Swan staff. The event was aimed at encouraging young people to discover new sports and activities in their community, whilst providing a fun and engaging backdrop to learn how to stay healthy and fit.

Since the event, the SportInspired team have been actively engaging in the delivery of their sport legacy work in Basildon, which will see the setting up of school and community sports clubs to create a supportive environment for the children to continue to be physically active. They will also continue to train the Basildon Academy Young Leaders to consolidate their skills and work with residents to put their new coaching qualifications into practice.

The project earlier received a joint funding from Swan and Beechwood Village Community Trust to deliver a range of sporting programmes in Basildon.
