College Sports Maker Project

The primary aim of the College Sport Maker is to widen access and engage more learners within the college, in regular sporting activity at least once a week for 30 minutes. Activities will take place at both Oswestry and Walford campuses making use of the excellent outdoor sports facilities and sports hall.

From September 2017 a programme of activities, offering a wide range of sports and physical activities will take place before college, during break and lunchtimes and directly after college. Evening sessions are also available at the Walford campus for students living in, but all students are welcome.

The College Sport Maker Project has provided lots of traditional and nontraditional sports since the project was established back in January 2013. There have been over 50 differentsports delivered. These include rugby, basketball, badminton, archery, orienteering, inclusive cycling, martial arts, netball, dodgeball, goalball, wheelchair sports and a range of water based activities to name a few…

The College Sport Maker also creates opportunities for students to gain practical experience and skills through volunteering. Roles include delivering and assisting with sports coaching, marketing and promotion, event management, competitions, refereeing plus many other roles available throughout the academic year.

The College Sport Maker is really looking forward to identifying the needs of the new learners and working with them to establish some new sports in the college.
