Sport Unlimited South Bedfordshire Natalie Donhou Morley
Sport Unlimited In year one, we retained 684 young people in the South Beds area, achieving 106% of our yearly target over 56 activities. Some of our most successful activities were Table Tennis, Rock It Ball, Dodgeball & Cycling – all of which were delivered within school settings and supported by the SSCos on site.
Sport Unlimited The start of year two has seen many challenges. With 33 activities running in the summer term we managed to retain 361 young people and achieved 98% of our target. Low numbers in various activities including archery, aerobics and cheerleading negatively impacted on our desired outcome.
Sport Unlimited Case Study 1 - Dodgeball across the South Beds area Level 1 Leighton Buzzard Youth Club Dodgeball in all middle schools New community Club New competition added to yearly competition calendar
Sport Unlimited Case Study 2 - Pages Park Community Dance Club Additional hour of activity linked to new Youth Club in deprived area of Leighton Buzzard Linked into Vandyke Dance Company & Arts Factory for sustainable exit route Free performance for parents at Vandyke Performing Arts Event
Sport Unlimited Case Study 3 - Flag Football in Dunstable Upper Schools Extracurricular sessions in 3 schools Competition day run by Bedford Blue Raiders Plans for satellite club in the Dunstable area More sessions taking place & planned in additional schools
Sport Unlimited Case Study 4 - Leighton Linslade Upper Schools 2 sites Poor uptake despite student consultation Expensive per head Sustainability proved to be problematic Retention of only 14 students
Sport Unlimited Case Study 5 - Skateboarding at Fulbrook Middle School Sign up activity at minimal cost per child 100% Retention Good numbers have allowed this continue without S.U Funding Marked increase in the use of the new community skate park
Sport Unlimited QUESTIONS? Where do we go from here? How much should we rely on young person consultation? How we guarantee sustainably for our young people? a weekly sports club that hopes to provide the opportunity for young people between the ages of 8-18 years old who have a learning or physical disability (and their siblings) to have fun, boost their confidence and try out different sports.
