The Sport Makers programme is part of the People strand of Sport England's London 2012 mass participation legacy programme Places, People, Play.
Sports Makers is a nationwide campaign that will use the inspirational pull of London 2012 to recruit, train and deploy 40,000 new sports volunteers aged 16 years and over to make sport happen across the country.
Sport Makers will organise and support hundreds of thousands of new hours of grassroots sport, creating new opportunities across the country. The Sport Makers will bring the Olympic and Paralympic values to life in every community and will be a highly tangible element of the London 2012 legacy.
Anyone is able to attend a FREE informal Sport Makers training event, whereby they will gain an insight into areas such as the Olympic and Paralympic Values, Having fun and keeping everybody safe, and a Delployment Depot, whereby they will see abvalible opportunities in the County.
Everyone who attends a Sport Makers event will recieve a FREE Sport Makers draw string bag, adidas t-shirt, and, after completing 10 Sport Makers hours, will be entered into a draw to win some great free aditional prizes.
