School Sport & Physical Activity Network

The Hinckley and Bosworth School Sport and Physical Activity Network (SSPAN) has a core purpose to promote and co-ordinate participation in lifelong phyiscal activity for all young people.

Key to their role is to build links between all of the schools in our borough to develop school sports opportunities both within school, between schools and to the wider community.

This includes co-ordinating the school games programme, running various level 2 competitions to qualify for the level 3 competition in the new year. In addition the SSPAN actively promote various voluntary opportunities to encoruage students to develop additional skills such as leadership and teamwork. Also they play a role in students making steps towards involvement with community sport clubs through schemes such as satellite clubs and sportivate, as well as generally publicising community sport.
