INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS

Belgium Trip 2016

Date – Summer 2016 – Venue – Antwerp Belgium

This trip is about developing young athletes by taking them to an international competition. This is hugely valuable as it gives them confidence and a competition to aspire to and often is the stepping stone for future GB selection.

This is always a hugely anticipated trip amongst the athletes and is a good event to be involved as a sponsor / partner as it really is about developing future international track and field stars. More details here.

SportAnimals 2016 -2017

This is brand new concept being developed in partnership with Paignton Zoo. The idea is to combine indoor athletics with an educational theme about animals. The concept is about learning, being active and having loads of fun and is aimed at primary school children.

The idea of this proposal is to develop an indoor athletics based sportshall linking it to animal characteristics. For example:

  • Sprint like a cheetah – sprints and speed work
  • Jump like a kangaroo – standing long jump, vertical jump
  • Be strong like a gorilla – shot putt and throws

This concept has great potential and we are seeking sponsors to join us at the start and be part of the developing SportAnimal story!
