Campaign to teach life skills through sport

A new campaign has been launched by a Sheffield charity to teach children and young people key life skills through sport.

Sheffield City Trust’s Skills for Life initiative aims to highlight how sport can encourage the development of skills including confidence, leadership and communication.

The campaign is focused around coaching in six key sports – athletics, swimming, ice skating, football, gymnastics and trampolining.

It aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Sheffield by providing facilities for sport and leisure activities.
