Sport & Community Development
The main role of the Sports Development department is to focus on building links with local schools. Our schools programme has been developed to deliver high quality physical literacy curriculum time sessions and also provide out of school opportunities for children to engage in extra extended activities. We provide schools with a comprehensive programme designed to compliment and reinforce existing PE and academic syllabus based on developing physical literacy.
Through the motivational and inspirational power of sport, and in particular football, we also aim to develop a child’s personal skills, improve their academic achievement, build self-esteem, encourage healthy lifestyles and ultimately enhance the pupil’s employability.
Sports Development at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust aims too:
– Increase levels of Participation in Primary School Settings
– Educating individuals of the health benefits of Sport
– Provide environments for Children to realise their potential
As a Trust, we are proud to be able to offer quality sports and educational provision to a network of schools, groups and individuals throughout the calendar year. This is achieved through an extensive range of activities, each delivered by our highly skilled team of staff who are not only seen as coaches, but also positive role models by the many people that we come into contact with.
Currently we are delivering a wide variety of sessions that include reading programmes, PE provision, PPA, lunchtime clubs, after school clubs, matchday experiences, school sports programme, holidays clubs, pre school and sponsored penalty shootouts!
