SFC educates, enables, and empowers youth with pro/para/Olympic athletes to inspire champions of tomorrow, whilst supporting world-cass athletic talents in their sporting endeavours.
Unlock your pupils’ potential with Sports For Champions and Sophie Carrigill. Our Resilience and Self-Esteem Workshops provide a unique opportunity for Primary School pupils to learn from a world-class Paralympic athlete. Over the course of the day your students will gain critical life skills that will positively impact their future, have the opportunity to ask a Paralympian star questions, have their photo taken with Sophie and receive certification on completion.
Our workshops tackle key topics in line with the national agenda for child welfare and public health. With 20% of children in the UK reporting some form of bullying in 2019, it’s more important than ever to address this critical issue. By nurturing empathy, consideration, and reflection in our young people, we can reduce bullying and improve the quality of life for all.
Your students will participate in a high-impact experience that will resonate with them for years to come. Our world-class athlete will inspire and motivate students to embrace resilience, self-esteem, and positive values. The workshop will take place in a positive environment, allowing students to be comfortable with themselves and their peers.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enhance your students’ wellbeing and development. Contact us today to learn more about how Sports For Champions UK (CIC) can support you in helping your pupils in reaching their full potential.
