One of the key aims of Active Schools is to develop strong pathways between the schools and the sports clubs in the local community to get more children more active, more often.

School - Club pathways are created by Active Schools Coordinators working in partnership with local sports clubs and arranging activities and events such as extra-curricular clubs, taster sessions and festivals.

The creation of these school - club links allows greater opportunities for the children and young people of West Dunbartonshire to participate in sport in their local area.

...................................

"The partnership between Active Schools and Kirktonhill Tennis Club has been hugely positive in introducing tennis to hundreds of local school children and encouraging them to participate more regularly in the sport. The club’s coach has provided taster sessions in schools and the club has benefited by hosting tennis events organised by Active Schools, thereby giving opportunities to children to play on real tennis courts. We at the club wholeheartedly welcome the positive approach to tennis taken by Active Schools and hope that our shared efforts to increase tennis participation locally can be further strengthened in the months and years ahead."

Fiona MacDonald, Secretary, Kirktonhill Tennis Club 

 

"The Active Schools team have been extremely helpful to me in promoting my Taekwondo club. Whenever I asked for the possibility of attending a few schools to do some demos, I was always met with a prompt reply and things were organised extremely quickly. Further to this I have found the staff very friendly and easy to get on with and have always kept days involving myself well organised."

Harley Wilkie, Head Coach, Ultimate Taekwondo Club
