‘Growing and sustaining the sporting legacy in disadvantaged areas’ is the theme of this
year’s StreetGames training event, to be held at Warwick University on the 12th and 13th of April.
The event will feature a range of talks, workshops and networking opportunities, and hopes to take advantage of the charity's 2012 Olympics involvement. Among the topics being addressed are: ways of responding to the new economic conditions, practical sessions to improve the quality of delivery, Active Women (ways of bringing more women into sport), and Sportivate (a part of the 2012 Mass Participation Legacy Plan).
Its list of speakers includes celebrity trainer Greg Whyte, a former Olympian who has recently trained various celebrities to perform dramatic physical feats, such as David Walliams' recent swim across the English Channel and Eddie Izzard's 43 marathons in 51 days.
Other guests will include representatives from The FA and the Rugby Football League.
StreetGames was formed in 2007 as a charity for developing sport in disadvantaged areas. It has won numerous awards, including 'Best UK Project' at the Business Charity Awards 2010, and generated over one million attendances through its many projects.
