National 7.01 Why the Variance - What is a School Club Link in Surrey? Agreement between a school and a community based sports club. PESSCL Definition: "A school has links with a club when pupils are actively guided towards club activities, either in a quality assured setting at the club itself or on the school premises. Activities on the school premises would include regular coaching sessions and out-of-hours clubs organised by the club’s coaches, but would not include one-off ‘taster’ sessions. Pupils have to be actively participating with the club that has links to the school: it is not enough for the school simply to promote/advertise the club, as set out in the ‘School-club links’ guide." School Club Links Case Study in NWSSSP • PDM & SDO’s invited local clubs to attend a workshop. • SDO’s, SSCo’s, PDM & 40 representatives from 27 local clubs attended. • PDM & SDO’s set the scene (PSA target, recent “5 hour” announcement, what is a SCL and benefits to all involved). • Woking Blackhawks rep gave a real example of a local SCL in action. • Contact details of all SSCo’s were distributed with diagram of schools. • Main part of the evening was networking – SSCo’s and club reps made initial contact and have subsequently met to discuss how things can move forward. The Challenges 1. Number of high quality (ASCA / Clubmark accredited) clubs. 2. Lack of clubs based around some schools. 3. Lack of availability of club reps to deliver after school activity due to work commitments. 4. Schools’ understanding of a School Club Link. How Can SDO’s & NGB’s Work With SSP’s? • SDO’s & NGB’s have much better knowledge of high quality community clubs and contacts within them. • Funding questions! • Target clubs near schools with low number of links. Any questions?
