Providing our young people with the skills, confidence and opportunities to take part in high-quality physical activity and sport remains key to developing a sporting habit for life amongst future generations.

The Oxfordshire School Games offers every school-age child in Oxfordshire the opportunity to take part in high quality competition, whether within their school, cluster, district or county.

With a key focus on providing fun, engaging activities for 14-19 year olds, Satellite Clubs offers funding to those looking to deliver physical activity and sport to this age range.

Basketball Olympiam Drew Sullivan visits South Oxfordshire Heat on Saturday 3 February at Didcot Girls School

The children from South Oxfordshire Heat Basketball Club had the exciting opportunity to be coached by towering 6 foot 8 basketball legend Drew Sullivan when he took control of the regular Saturday practice at Didcot Girls School on Saturday 3 February. Drew put the children through an intensive training session and provided some inspirational advice to include the importance of working as a team, hard work and discipline to achieve their goals on and off the court. The children were focused throughout the session and came away with a great buzz and renewed excitement/enthusiasm for their sport. The SOHBC Trustees commented that they are happy to be able to provide these unique opportunities for young basketball players in Oxfordshire - "it is important that the children interact with someone like Drew who has reached the highest level of UK basketball but is at the same time a great role model for respect and fair play".
