At Sky Blues in the Community, one of our main aims is to improve the health and wellbeing of our participants. This includes improving the quality of life for individuals with mental and physical difficulties, increasing life expectancy of the older generation through sport and reducing the use of health and social services.
We offer a range of programmes which target the entire population and improve the lifestyles of all members of the community.
In It Together
An all-female activity project aimed at increasing participation of women and girls in sport across Coventry and Warwickshire. We aim to remove the stigma of girls in sport and give them a platform to showcase their sporting ability and knowledge.
Our beginners running course registered over 550 members in 2018, with 2019 hoping to achieve an even bigger number. The courses follow the couch to 5k programme and encourages women to get active and socialise in a safe environment.

Joy Of Moving Programme
Funded by Ferrero, in partnership with the EFL Trust, Joy Of Moving is a national initiative which aims to improve physical literacy in year 5 pupils. It comprises of a 6-week project aimed at engaging children in the importance of exercise and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.
In 2018, we have delivered this project to over 2,000 year 5 pupils, across 38 schools in Coventry and Warwickshire. Our aim is to develop a health interest in children and encourage them to understand the significant benefits that physical activity can have on their health. The project gives children the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and learn skills which may not be available in the school curriculum.
