This coming Easter, ISF will be offering young people a chance to get off the sofa and get into sport! Learn to Lead is part of the Holiday and Food programme (HAFP) designed to give young people active, healthy holidays. The course will teach leadership skills that they can use in all aspects of their lives.
With our partners at First Step Sports Group, our course will provide real-world skills this half-term. A group of young people will volunteer at our Easter Camps at Beverly Longcroft, becoming an integral part of creating a safe, enjoyable Easter break for local children.
The scheme is aimed at 11–16-year-olds who want to turn a passion for sport into a toolkit of leadership skills. During their time they will get a taste of camp organisation and coaching, seeing first-hand the fruits of their labour on a path to becoming confident young sporting leaders.
At ISF we pride ourselves in partnering the theoretical with the practical experience. In 4 days, they will practice their communication skills, and learn how to be flexible and reactive to new stimuli whilst learning the practical application of strong organisational skills.
The course aims to get them moving alongside a set of our most experienced coaches and instructors, meeting new people and making new friends. So we’ll be running the course from the 19th to the 22nd of April, starting at 10am and finishing at 3pm. For children currently in receipt of free school, the course is free of charge.
As a result of completing the course, all attendees will receive a certificate in recognition of their hard work!

The HAF programme is supported by the Department for Education in partnership with East Riding Council.
