Youth Sport Trust & Access Sport have formed a volunteering and leadership project for young people that will give them the opportunity to volunteer on a range of local to major sporting events.
The Ignite Programme is an innovative project aimed at engaging more young disabled people into sport. It is part of Access Sport’s wider legacy programme aiming to ensure that there is a lasting positive effect from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The Ignite multi sports inclusive camp is an inclusive opportunity for young disabled and non-disabled people (6-19) to participate in a range of sports such as athletics, basketball, squash, tag rugby, cricket, netball and football.
The aim of this camp is to ensure that young disabled people have access to sport so that they can realise the benefits that participation brings at an early age, and hope that this participation becomes a habit that is continued in later life.
Access Sport is looking for a group of enthusiastic and motivated young people who are passionate about the provision of disability sport and physical activity in Manchester. The key role throughout the camp will be to support, encourage and help maintain a fun and relaxed vibe. No previous experience and training is required for this opportunity. A full briefing on the day will be given to all volunteers.
