Katie White OBE – School Governor

Everyone is looking for ways to spend money most effectively for maximum outcome. Sporting Influence has proved themselves to be a incredibly valuable organisation, benefiting pupils and staff across the Yorkshire region. David and his team are passionate about making a difference to kids and it shows in their creativity and results.

Andy Bayston – Executive Principle, Harrogate High School

I have no hesitation in recommending the active programmes provided by Sporting Influence within local schools. David leads a team of committed professionals who provide innovative sessions aimed at developing the physical literacy and the soft skills of social and self-awareness. The sessions are engaging, motivating and offer a very good blend of reflection and interaction. Without doubt this combination builds the self-confidence of the young people involved. I’m certain colleagues from local schools see a real difference in their pupils after working with Sporting Influence.

Simon Blower – Director, Pobble

Pobble is delighted to work alongside the Sporting Influence team on our successful Literacy through Sport initiative. As Director of the company and an experienced school leader I consider carefully who Pobble partners with on any initiative. I had no hesitation in working with Dave on a range of projects. He is very professional, builds excellent links with schools and also develops great relationships with pupils. As a result of this we always see great impact in the work we do together. As a school leader I would have no hesitation in asking him to work in my school.

Improving social skills through sport

Our Camps are always inclusive and we love having a wide range of children from different backgrounds and children who enjoy a range of sports and activities.

Sporting Influence After School Clubs are a fun and exciting hour of games, sports and activities to engage children in disguised learning and exercise. Playing a wide range of games and sports (club dependant) the children will work on specific skills all underpinned by our five social skills.
