funetics delivers Commonwealth Games legacy

funetics will deliver opportunities to thousands of children and young people to engage in run, jump, and throw. More importantly, we will support Athletics Clubs in developing and growing their workforce, and embed funetics within community settings, working with new partners in developing new leaders and coaches in Athletics, so that funetics can be delivered all year round in flexible community settings to meet local need.

funetics has been chosen by Sport England to support thousands of children and young people to experience athletics as a legacy to the Birmingam 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Our strategy for engagement in the legacy initiative is multi-facetted and in the spirit of our vision for athletics for children and young people.

funetics kicks off our legacy activation during the Commonwealth Games this summer – and at our home Alexander Stadium.

Legacy holiday camps

Engaging with our local delivery partners, we are seeking to host a number of funetics holiday hamps across Birmingham we propose that all camps are offered in 2022 free of charge as part of our ongoing legacy offer:

  • Parks and open spaces
  • Leisure and cultural venues
  • Athletics track and field clubs

Working with Active Wellbeing Society we will enable families to engage with funetics in their local park, open space or back garden at zero cost and at times that suit the family.

 

"This investment will enable us to give more children the opportunity to experience and enjoy athletics for the first time through funetics."
