Tips for sports clubs on how to engage with youngsters

Sports clubs in Boston are being encouraged to attend a free club support evening this month.

Volunteers, coaches, secretaries, treasurers and participants from sports clubs are invited to the event run by Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.

With the focus of the evening being on how to engage children and young people through sport, there will be information on funding for under 16s and on the Olympic Torch Relay in Boston and how children can get involved.

Clubs will also learn about how they can engage with schools.

Hayley Cook is the Boston lead and is hosting the evening.

She said: “With an exciting summer of sport including Euro 2012, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and the Egyptian Paralympic Team, now is the perfect time for clubs to inspire young people to take up sport.

“The evening is set to be a huge success.”

Clubs will get the chance to talk to Lincolnshire Sports Partnership about any needs in their area.

The evening will take place on on June 18 (6.30pm-8.30pm), at The Pilgrim Lounge, Boston United.
