What are the Benefits?
Many young people take part in school sport, but there are fewer who take part in activities outside of school. And after they leave compulsory education most young people do not take part in any form of regular sport of physical activity at all.
Establishing School – Club links gives young people the opportunity to continue participating in worthwhile sporting and physical activity throughout their lives. It allows youngsters to make the most of their experiences in both settings, to try out new sports, feel comfortable in a club setting and as a result makes them more likely to continue participating once they leave school.
