Latest CSN Articles

From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

Show your Sporting Spirit

0 0
Start to get excited about the Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer by showing your sporting spirit. The perfect way to do this is by joining hundreds of schools taking part in the Get Set for the Spirit of Sport programme.

Get Set for the Spirit of Sport encompasses the Olympic and Paralympic values, enabling young people to make the right decisions on and off the field of play, in turn maximising the enjoyment for everyone involved.

Practical and classroom based activities provide young people with an opportunity to practise making decisions that uphold fair play, respect and friendship in a fun and interactive way. Over 2,000 free resources have already been used by teachers, and you can get involved too by downloading them for free on the Get Set website. 

Deputy Headteacher of Albrighton Primary School, Howard Auckland said:

"Get Set for the Spirit of Sport had a positive impact on my pupils. Lessons were fun and engaging, they challenged pupils’ views and understanding. I definitely recommend these lessons!”

Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch said: 

"It's essential our star athletes of tomorrow are educated on the dangers of doping and the value of clean sport. Get Set for the Spirit of Sport is a great way for young people to understand the importance of competing on a level playing field and I would encourage schools across the country to get involved."
