  • Support and develop ¬ćeffective pathways between schools and clubs to improve the transition of children and young people from schools to clubs.


  • Grow and develop a network of people to deliver opportunities within schools ensuring they have the confidence, skills and knowledge to deliver quality sporting opportunities.
  • Recruit, retain and develop volunteers to deliver opportunities in schools.
  • Provide support and leadership opportunities in a range of roles including: deliverers/coaches, event competition organisers, technical officials, decision makers and ambassadors.


  • Raise awareness and understanding of Active Schools and impact amongst key stakeholders and the wider community.
