StreetGames is developing 1000 new Doorstep Sport Clubs as a major contribution to the 2012 Olympic Legacy. The clubs are targeted in disadvantaged areas and give over 100,000 young people the chance to develop a sporting habit for life. The clubs are for the community with an emphasis on being fun, sociable and a strong element of youth leadership. Engage Communities was successfully chosen to run a Doorstep Sport Club. The club is located in the North of Stoke-on-Trent at Dimensions Leisure Centre and is called Engage North Doorstep Sport Club. Our coaches who run the club are special people – skilled in leading sport sessions as well as mentoring young people to make the best of themselves. The coaches are also Community Interacters, which means they live in the local areas and understand the communities they work in. Our young volunteers co-run the club gaining new skills and qualifications and developing as they learn leadership skills.
