Sports coaching and development are just the tip of how the ISF programme creates opportunities for young people. As a project with its roots in inspiring and developing northern talent, we are committed to expanding our partnerships until every driven young person with sporting aspirations can enrol.
As an ISF host school, you offer students a programme that encourages innovation and commercial acumen. Past their coaching skill, ISF offers more avenues into the employment sector than any other similar programme. Connecting students globally with sports coaching companies, employment, and education.
But why sport and sports coaching? What is it that makes sport and sports coaching so transformative?
The Olympics has continued in modern times to yield great success for the North. Hull-born boxer Luke Campbell amongst others struck gold with his performance at London 2012 and Tokyo bringing a total of 19 medals to the region. This is central to what our ambassador Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill wants for ISF students. To understand and learn the discipline and focus that made her career so successful.
It’s about investing in people and their potential. And we know better than anyone that world-class athletes have found their success here, Huddersfield’s Ed Clancy, and Chester’s Beth Tweedle to name a few, have built successful careers in and out of sport.
But at ISF, we believe we can continually strengthen and improve that base. That’s why becoming an ISF host school offers students an understanding of the structures and institutions that they will encounter. If they choose to take the step of building their own business like Clancy Briggs Cycling or Beth Tweedle Gymnastics they’ll have all the tools they need.
ISF can open the doors to a global platform. Our connections with Future PRO USA give them worldwide sporting credentials alongside their learning in the classroom and on the field. By working with their network of university sports coaches on our sports scholarship, they can learn, expand, and develop under the tutelage of their professionalism.
Build a part of history. Build your future. Build a sporting legacy as a host ISF school.
