A post-pandemic shout out to schools encouraging them to take part in games at Tresham College in Kettering was met with a huge response.
Tom Kay, Head of Sport at the College, asked 28 schools within a two mile radius of the Kettering campus if they wanted to take part – and the result was more than 350 children playing football, basketball and rugby.
“I couldn’t believe the response! It has been a huge success. The feedback was that they loved our facilities and our support and want to come back for more.”
“The benefit for Tresham College is the events give our students as trainee coaches the chance to put their skills into practice by showing children the ropes and rules.
“Our students want to be sports teachers, PE trainers and so on. As part of their studies, they take a range of coaching qualifications which require them to work with young people on the pitch or on court. This partnership with local schools has given Tresham students a real head start in their coaching and teaching careers.”
