Sir Steve Redgrave inspires Chesterfield pupils
Sir Steve Redgrave, five times Olympic Gold Medallist, visited Hasland Hall School in Chesterfield today for an Ultimate Frisbee workshop and indoor Rowing festival, as an ambassador for Matalan Sporting Promise; a programme that supports sport and PE activity in schools, working in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust.
The Matalan your Activity focuses on promoting alternative sports to secondary school pupils who are not attracted to the mainstream/traditional sports. By offering alternative sports such as Ultimate Frisbee and Indoor Rowing., the programme aims to increase participation and whole school impact, thereby addressing the drop-off in sports participation.
Head of PE at Hasland Hall, Kev Leatherday said “We are looking to develop non-traditional sports for those pupils who don’t normally take part in activities.”
Sir Steve Redgrave gave a motivating presentation to an audience of young people and teachers at Hasland Hall, talking about his experience and the work he put in to become a 5 times Olympic Gold Medallist.
Headteacher of Hasland Hall, Mandy Boulton commented “For young people to see Sir Steve Redgrave is inspirational. He has talked about his motivation and some of the things he said will stay with them.”
The young people, from schools across Chesterfield participated in a leadership training award in Ultimate Frisbee and an indoor rowing exhibition, with Sir Steve Redgrave actively participating in both activities finishing the day with a master-class in rowing.
Speaking at Hasland Hall School, Sir Steve Redgrave said: "It has been an honour to come and see the enthusiasm from both pupils and staff.”
