How does Chance Camp support development?
The Multi skill academy challenged your pupils in the above areas using the sports of
gymnastics, athletics, rugby, tennis and hockey.
We brought together fifty of the most talented children from all over Allerdale to com-
pete and challenge each other from Year 2 to Year 6. At the 2017 Academy the follow-
ing schools were involved: Eaglesfield Paddle Primary, All Saints Primary, Broughton
Academy, Seaton Juniors, Derwent Vale Primary, Plumbland Primary, St Michaels
Primary, Threlkeld Primary, Thomlinson Juniors and Fell View Primary.
Coaches and children completed detailed assessments to ensure areas of improvement
that need to be made could be shared with parents, school and sport clubs.
Raise children’s sporting aspirations (GOALS) of young people and plant the seed for
them to grow into their full sporting potential.
“The multi skill academy programme started in 2008 and many pupils from Allerdale
have gone to reach their sporting potential identified in
Primary Schools. We have had success with Rio and Steffi
Hardy in Football in America, Natasha Wilson within in-
ternational Javelin, Danieka Borthwick on the interna-
tional tennis scene, Caine Barnes and Theeapol Ritson
Professional Rugby League, Kyle Dempsey and Patrick
Brough professional football, Jamie Blamire professional
rugby union to name a few” Chris Wright 2017.
