For a number of years the Arches School Sports Partnership has been working closely with Sheffield Hallam University and supporting the sports students with their studies of particular modules. Again this year we were invited to support the Events Management Module on the Sports Development and Coaching course and support groups of students to provide events for Sheffield School Children in various different sports.
The 6 events included; Y5/6 Dodgeball, Volleyball, Inclusive Football, Change 4 Life Festival, Y3/4 Sports Hall Athletics and also a KS1 Athletics/ Multisports Festival.
The events were overall a success and the students are now awaiting their marks for their particular events. School teachers provided feedback to the students on their events and overall the children had an extremely good time across the 6 different activities.
We look forward to working closely with some of these pupils again in the future and hope to see some of them working in sport in Sheffield in the near future, and maybe in some of our schools.
