Sport Makers is a programme for everyone who'd like to make
sport happen for their friends, neighbours or colleagues. Sport Makers aims to
inspire 600 people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to get involved, with
each of them spending at least 10 hours organising or leading sporting
activities. It is open to anyone aged 16 and over.
Sport Makers is run by LIVING SPORT in Cambridgeshire and
Peterborough, in conjunction with Sport England and is part of the Places
People Play legacy programme that is bringing the magic of a home Olympic and
Paralympic Games into communities across the country. Every Sport Maker will be
invited to an informal and interactive workshop where they'll gain the skills
and opportunities to get involved in sport. Sport Makers will be introduced to
organisations that need their help, and join forces with others who want to
make sport happen locally. There'll also be plenty of incentives to stay
involved. Sport Makers for those that are 16+ and aimed at adult participation.
