Sport Makers was launched in the region with a pilot conference at John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds on Thursday 6 October.
Fifty potential new volunteers gathered for a series of workshops and inspirational talks. Olympic Cyclist Bryan Steel was on hand to show off his two medals while Olympic diver Rebecca Gallantree and Paralympic swimmer Clare Cashmore shared their experiences.
There was also a deployment depot of 20 organisations from governing bodies of sport – including Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, as well as local authorities and clubs on hand to sign the Sport makers up for activities and help them find new opportunities.
Clare Marlow, the Women and Girls Development Officer at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats attended the deployment depot to raise awareness of the opportunities that we have at the club for Sports Makers, including;
• CSLA or JSLA Coaching Awards
• Match day volunteering
• Rugby/dance festival
• Assist with rugby coaching
• Assist at holiday camp
• Promotion of programmes/leagues etc
• Student support mentoring
• Support established community teams
• Careers advice, information and guidance.
