Sport Makers help to organise sporting activities in their local area, either informally with friends, colleagues and neighbours or by teaming up with a sport club.
Free help, training and support is available to anyone aged 16 or over who would like to become a Sport Maker, to help them set up their own activity or find an opportunity to get involved with others.
Free workshops are currently being held across the county. Go to www.sportmakers.co.uk (opens in a new window) to book your place or register your interest.
Sport Makers is a national Olympic legacy programme to support hundreds of thousands of new hours of grassroots sport across the country.
Sport Makers will make sport happen at a local level. Some Sport Makers will organise sport for themselves and their friends, while others won’t take part in the sport themselves, but will be doing all those other things that make the sporting activity possible such as booking a venue or publicising the sessions to attract new participants.
Becoming a Sport Maker is the ideal chance for anyone who is looking forward to the 2012 Games to dip their toe in the water, get involved and play their own part in what will be a fantastic sporting event and the legacy that will come from that.
Sport Makers aims to inspire 779 people in Derbyshire to get involved, with each of them volunteering for at least ten hours to organise or lead sporting activities for participants aged 16 years and over.
Sport Makers is part of Sport England’s Places People Play legacy programme that is bringing the magic of a home Olympic and Paralympic Games into communities across the country.
