Panathlon in partnership with Wandsworth School Games combined to deliver the “Step Into Sport” Projectability training today. There were 45 delegates, from 9 schools across the Central Boroughs: Burntwood, Southfields, Oak Lodge, HIU, Linden Lodge, Graveney, Samual Rhodes, Elm Court & Garratt Park.

Three of these schools first competition will be the Panathlon Challenge Central Competition early next month. Paralympian Tim Prendergast introduced the day & got involved throughout, inspiring the delegates with his story and experiences of his career that spans over 4 Paralympic games, including London 2012.

Today’s course was based on the Panathlon Young Officials course and included some extra modules on communication skills, inclusion & a personal reflection on their team challenge of officiating their peers on their chosen sport. I look forward to working with some of these leaders in less than 3 weeks time.
