On Wednesday 20th October, after many months of anticipation, we were able to host the Qualitas Sports Summit and it didn’t disappoint. Over 750 children attended the event split between Ice Sheffield and EIS Sheffield.
Various activities were held around the venue’s including Ice Skating, Mini Marathon’s, Fitness & Dance workshops, Football Freestyle performance and stations; as well as sprinting masterclasses hosted by Olympian’s Dwain Chambers and Mike McFarlane. Whilst the children were enjoying the various sports and activities on the track and ice, PE leads and school headteachers were attending a Qualitas CPD day with guest speakers from Richard Gerver, Streetwise Soccer, Dwain Chambers and Mike McFarlane.
The aim of the sport summit was to kick start sport and PE opportunities for children in light of the recent Pandemic where many opportunities have been taken away.
The event was a fantastic success with all of the children leaving with smiles on their faces, having enjoyed the day, and hopefully leaving with a spark of aspiration and inspiration to continue their journey in sport.
