Active Young People
What we want to do...
Sport Ceredigion aims to ensure that all young people reach their full sporting potential through the acquisition of physical movement and sporting skills, thereby enabling a healthy lifestyle for life.
Why we want to achieve this...
For sport to become a lifelong experience it is essential that basic skills are acquired at an early age and developed throughout all key stages.
How we will achieve this:
- By endeavouring to make school sport and PE a pleasurable and rewarding experience for all.
- By providing high quality training, mentoring and continuing professional development opportunities in PE and sports coaching for teachers and learning support assistants.
- By sustaining PE development centres, based on families of schools, that better access training, resources and shared good practice.
- By facilitating smooth transition from primary to secondary and from school to community based sport.
- By providing specialist sports coaching support to schools.
- By supporting inter-school sport competitions, sports festivals and events.
There is increasing evidence that active children become active adults. The children of today will be young adults in the 2020's. The Sports Council for Wales have invested heavily into developing young people's participation. Through the inception of various schemes, the Sports Council for Wales believe that this investment will create long-term cultural change and life-long habits leading to health gains as well as increasing participation in sport.
There are 3 main programmes to support Active Young People in Ceredigion. These are managed by Bryn Evans and include:
|Dragon Sport: a programme aiming to increase opportunities in extra-curricular and community settings for 7-11 year olds;|
|PE and School Sport (PESS): a project aiming to raise standards of physical education in schools;|
|5x60: a programme to increase extra-curricular opportunities in secondary schools.|
