Anti-knife Crime Programme
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) visits children of all relevant ages to deliver a preventative education structure that will ensure their welfare amidst an escalating national crisis. In 2018, over 40,000 "knife related crimes" were reported in the UK alone (Ref: Gov.UK), with tensions rising in many cities by the week.
It is critical to provide youth with a voice they know, a voice they already respect, to guide and inspire children as champions of tomorrow, rather than potential victims and/or criminals. In this case, prevention is clearly the only cure!
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) delivers an outstanding portfolio of professional athletes and Team GB Olympians to empower our anti-knife crime audience, featuring stars that have relevant backgrounds to ensure a quality delivery of this high impact programme. Let us talk real with your students about the law, gang life, the physical and mental risks that come with carrying a blade, as well as the impact of knife crime on families, and how getting involved with sport can create a new sense of community with opportunities beyond life on the streets surrounded by crime.
This leads us into a focused fitness session followed by a Q&A for participants with their athlete. A self defence class will also be held by a former international martial arts champion and SFC Athlete, or other qualified personnel that he has endorsed.
Sport provides focus and a sense of responsibility for young people, which in-turn enables them to undertake new prospects and generate fresh social opportunities. Keep them involved and tell us your story @Sports4Champs #Sports4Champions
