Leadership Opportunities

In Cumbria, leadership opportunities start with children as young as Year Two. This begins a pathway of learning that continues through to the end of secondary school and can provide recognised qualifications. By giving our children and young people these opportunities, we help develop their confidence and build core skills.

Below you will find information on how you can get your school involved:

KS4 - Elite Stars

We invite young people aged 14 - 18 to attend our Easter Chance Camp at Cockermouth RUFC where they are trained in the morning around leadership skills, sports coaching, refereeing, gamification and activity design. The young people are then deployed as volunteer assistant coaches in the afternoon working with children between the ages of 4 - 14. Delivered by Chris Wright wrightsportservices@gmail.com.
