Mental Health Sports Leaders Awards
The Foundation has successfully delivered three one day Sport Leaders Awards throughout July and August in partnership with blueSCI, our local mental health partner. blueSCI provides opportunities for people who may be experiencing emotional or psychological distress. The awards enable those taking part to develop essential life skills such as organisation, motivation, self-esteem, communication and working with others.
39 blueSCI clients have now completed the Sport Leaders Award and will go on to complete a first aid award in September and then on to support the delivery of a 7 week activity session for their peers which will offer a progressive, fun and educational introduction to starter level adults that will include the basics of cricket. The sessions will include tactics, appropriate techniques to help players play the game and understand the scoring system. Weekly drills will also include bowling, batting, fielding positions and catching and will be taking place at the Indoor Cricket Centre at Emirates Old Trafford.
