” We have two schools working towards their young Panathlon Officials award today from Barking & Dagenham in East London. They all worked together in a fun and educational environment set by the Panathlon Team, James & Leigh. They enjoyed the opportunity be involved, to learn about disability sports and they can’t wait to officiate at the up and coming Panathlon Challenge.”
Lee Wilkins, School Sports Co-Ordinator
These 2 schools are just part of the 250 Young Panathlon Leaders that Panathlon will train as Young Officials this year. After successful completion of our course, practical real life experience soon follows as they officiate at one of many Panathlon Challenge competitions. Thanks to Jack Petchey Foundation for funding this area of training and development.
