Supporting Junior Sports Activities in Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire

Junior Sports Activities

Activities

The Junior Sports Programme has been involved in supporting and promoting over thirty different activities.

Not all pupils wish or are able to engage in traditional sporting activities. We tare herefore are actively involved in introducing new games to schools and clubs that can make use of existing facilities whilst appealing to children with a broad range of skill and ability.

These include:


Ultimate Disc Sport

Pop Lacrosse for Local Schools

The Junior Sports Programme has introduced an equipment loan scheme to boost development of pop lacrosse as a junior sports activity in Lincolnshire.

We have worked with Nottingham Lacrosse and English Lacrosse to extend the sport into junior schools in the East Midlands by:

  1. Providing loan equipment
  2. Training teachers and coaches
  3. Arranging inter school and regional tournaments

The programme also allows schools to test extending their sports curriculum without the need to incur expense buying new equipment.

Pop Lacrosse has been played in Nottinghamshire for many years. The Junior Sports Programme's new scheme has enabled Lincolnshire schools to play the game. Coaching courses are available for teachers in both counties.

Cricket is a team sport requiring a great deal of organisation and management. A cricket ball throwing competition is quickly and easily arranged, particularly useful if time is limited or where basic game skills are lacking.

Our contribution is:

  1. A downloadable instruction sheet - click here
  2. Score sheet for you to print - click here

All you need do to enter for our annual award is forward an email with the competitors name, age, school/club, supervisors contact information (Teacher or Adult Coach) and distance thrown. The competition runs every year and open for entries until the 25th September. Entries should be submitted to: info@juniorsport.co.uk .The winners will be announced in October.


Kin-ball
