When looking to book an athlete visit for your school, you’ll be allocated your very own School Liaison Representative (SLR) who’ll guide you through the entire process from the very start to after the event, who’ll be on hand and only a phone call away. Our athletes are in high demand, so it’s best to have dates ready to confirm as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out!
Once you’ve confirmed, you’ll receive a welcome pack with a DVD, risk assessment form, sponsorship forms and letters to parents explaining about fundraising and the event.
Once you’ve booked your athlete visit, it’s time to start fundraising! Getting kids involved in sport allows them to feel the rush of achievement after putting hard work in – and this starts with fundraising. The money raised supports our unsponsored athletes and benefits your school too.
We’re proud to be members of the Fund Raising Regulator, we follow strict rules and are regulated in all of our activities, meaning schools, parents and pupils can be confident knowing that:
Your personal SLR is always on hand to answer any questions, but we’ve put together some suggestions for preparing your pupils for their athlete visits, to get everyone excited and motivated:
Your athlete will arrive at school on the date and time you confirmed. The athlete will be interacting with the children throughout, encouraging and motivating them so that the children are engaged and feel comfortable asking any questions. The event will kick off with the Fitness Circuit Challenge!
Fitness Circuit Challenge
After the Fitness Circuit Challenge, your athlete will lead an inspirational assembly. Each athlete has their own unique story and their own journey into sport; and will even bring their medals for that extra wow factor! Your athlete will then give a demonstration of their sport or training, and will finish off with an open Q&A session. Your athlete will cover:
Through our visits we can unleash a new found excitment in schools, positively inspiring children to ditch the computer games and fast food to become healthier and lead a more active lifestyle. .
Our company mission is to visit every school in the UK to deliver our message. We believe that every child is capable of becoming tomorrows champion!
Sports For Champions U.K Community Interest Company are the primary organisers for bringing Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth Games, World Championship, European Championship athletes into schools nationally.
We Inspire Children Of Today To Become Champions Of Tomorrow
Your very own school benefits from an additional income strand, which supports increasingly stretched school funds. You will receive this in cash and we have no preference on what your school spend the funds raised on.
The money raised by you is supporting unsponsored athletes who train 35 plus hours a week. Without these vital funds, they would not be able to represent their country and train to the standard of a professional athlete.
Our athletes' story will inspire and motivate your children and staff to get more involved in sport and shed light on the doors that sport can open for you. A very small proportion of the overall money is re-invested in our Sports for Champions U.K. C.I.C. project to enable us to continue visiting other schools nationally to inspire all children no matter how big or small the school is.
We encourage you to publicise your event in any way that you like, this could even mean getting the local newspaper involved! This sends the message that your school is proactive in encouraging its students to live a healthier, more active lifestyle and perhaps spend less time on games consoles and smart phones, whilst sharing their new found excitement with their family.
