North West Leicestershire School Sports Partnership use Sports Leaders from all of our high and upper schools, to assist with the level 2 School Games that we deliver, and also offer them the opportunity to help at spring and summer Level 3 School Games Championships.
Volunteers are also used in the organisation of level 1 (intra) School Games. Leaders are used in the planning, delivery and evaluation of inter form competitions and also assist with the running of school clubs.
NWLSSP work actively with our local authority and local sports clubs to build strong links for both our leaders and any other pupils that wish to take part in sport within a community club setting.
Leadership within community clubs is actively promoted and we have a club links booklet that is updated and distributed to all schools each year. We aim to link all of our leaders to a community club to enable sustained volunteering.
Some of the volunteers managed to amass in excess of 70 hours of volunteering in both a school and community environment.
