Sports Club Showcase Events have recently been taking place across the city led by the Glasgow Sport Club, Coaching and Volunteering Team. Showcase Events have been delivered so far at Maryhill, St Fillians , Holyrood and Rosshall Academy attracting lots of young people from the local community.
The Showcase Events offer young people the opportunity to participate in a number of new sports all delivered by volunteers from local sports clubs. Sports included athletics, badminton, basketball, bowling, boxing, football, handball and judo plus many more.
After the events each participant is provided with a voluntary sports club directory with a list of local clubs for young people. It is hoped that these events will encourage local young people to join a local sports club.
The events have proven to be an excellent example of partnership working between Sports Development, Glasgow Communities, Sports Operations, Active Schools and local sports clubs. The feedback from the parents, young people and clubs has been very positive and it is hoped that these events will be delivered on a regular basis across the city.
