Forever Sport programme celebrates record numbers

Forever Sport, Bristol Sport Foundation’s primary school PE and sports coaching programme, has set a new termly record for its after-school clubs, with more than 1,000 pupils already registered for the first term of the academic year.

A total of 1,236 pupils are currently signed up, with numbers increasing every day. Forever Sport aims to helps children fall in love with sport and enjoy being active through curriculum time PE delivery, as well as the opportunity to sign up for extra-curricular clubs to continue their participation in the sports that they enjoy.

The after-school clubs are games-based, creating a fun and active environment that children can enjoy, whilst developing their physical literacy skills.

After-school club attendees also benefit by being invited to Bristol Sport matchdays, to cheer on Bristol City, Bristol Bears and Bristol Flyers and further inspire them towards lifelong participation and viewing of sport.

“The increase in after-school club numbers is testament to the passion and professionalism of our fantastic coaching team. Together, we will endeavour to reverse the childhood obesity and inactivity trend through providing fun, inclusive and active sporting opportunities."

Tom Monks, programme manager

With the previous total of 907 attendees already surpassed this term, programme manager, Tom Monks believes the record numbers demonstrate the growing success and impact of the programme and the coaches delivering it.

“I am really pleased to see that our Forever Sport programme is reaching and positively impacting on the health and wellbeing of even more children throughout Greater Bristol,” he said.

“The increase in after-school club numbers is testament to the passion and professionalism of our fantastic coaching team. Together, we will endeavour to reverse the childhood obesity and inactivity trend through providing fun, inclusive and active sporting opportunities.

“The support we receive from our professional clubs, who invite the children to a matchday, is hugely appreciated and adds an invaluable aspirational dimension to the programme.”
