Blue Square Conference & Football Association promoting Dignity and Respect in football but runs across all sport. The Olympics provided an amazing opportunity for the whole country to be part of a celebration of all that is good in sport – unfortunately there is a huge amount of negative press linked to poor attitudes and behaviour within sport too – (recent examples – Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, John Terry & Rio Ferdinand). Many young people look up to their sporting heroes and mimic their behaviours. Sport can also save a lot of young people from a life that may not be so positive e.g. drink, drugs etc as they have a focus such as playing football. Team spirit is a vital part of this and a sense of belonging and accessibility to sport and leisure activities is really important.
There are a few places remaining for the event which starts at 9.30am - for more details please ring the club on 0844 276 1939
