CMS Sport & Ride
We will be starting a new initiative in 2021 to provide transport to young people from deprived communities who are not able to access sporting facilities and attend club training.
Providing opportunities for young people to attend 'taster' sessions is brilliant but if there is no follow up to ensure the young people get to clubs it seems a wasted exercise.
Not only will we be taking sport to deprived communities through the On The Road program and with help of local clubs, but we will also be providing a solution to young people to get to clubs to play sports. At the moment young people in deprived communities do not always have access to local facilities and cannot get to club facilities, whether financial or logistical impediments.
As an example there could be a collection point around the eastern villages of Stirling, Monday to Friday providing a service for clubs, parents and young people.
We will be working with any sports clubs across the Forth Valley who would be interested in trialing this initiative.
THE PARTICIPANTS FROM THE ACADEMY PROGRAMME WILL ULTIMATELY TAKE THE LEAD IN THIS DEVELOPMENT AND WE WILL BE LOOKING TO WORK CLOSELY WITH LOCAL BUSINESS TO DELIVER THIS EXCITING CONCEPT
