NEWS: Sky Blues in the Community prepare for a busy final day of the home season against the Blades

29 April 2016

Take a look at what is planned for half-time at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday as the SBinC team celebrate a successful season of community delivery...

The Sky Blues community team have delivered more matchday activities than ever before during the 2015/16 season and will be ending the campaign much in the same way.

Firstly, kids from Joseph Cash Primary School who have taken part in the +Sport Move and Learn Project will be playing on the pitch at half-time on Saturday, alongside counterparts from Sheffield United.

An in-school programme, developed by Ferrero and the Football League Trust, is part of Ferrero’s global Kinder+Sport initiative and is designed to encourage active lifestyles in children across the world. Sky Blues in the Community are one of 18 Football Club Community Trusts in the UK and Ireland that are delivering the +Sport Move and Learn project during this season.

Sky Blues in the Community will be working with 1,800 children at Primary Schools across Coventry and Warwickshire. Year 5 children from these schools will participate in a 6 week programme that educates them about the importance of a balanced diet and adopting an active lifestyle.

Also this Saturday, the Raise Your Game project welcomes 15 students from Ernesford Grange and Riverbank Academy after completing the 6 week scheme.

Over the past 6 weeks, the 15 students have worked in both a classroom and practical setting, with the classroom lessons based around issues such as ‘controlling your emotions’ and using the practical lessons to work on leadership skills and teamwork. 

Alongside this, Bulkington FC will be attending thanks to the SBITC Group Ticket scheme, while the Community team will also be helping to deliver our mascot experience and provide ball boys for the final home game of the season. 

The +Sport Move and Learn project is free to schools in Coventry and Warwickshire. For more information about the project, or to speak to us about delivering in your school, please contact Hiedi Sloan on 024 7678 6314 or hiedi.sloan@ccfc.co.uk
