Ignite Sport UK provide sports education, inspiring children to increase their participation in physical activity. Their unique programmes, available in and out of schools, are run throughout Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Berkshire, offering the opportunity to gain a range of qualifications. Ignite Sport is also the official community partner of Oxford City FC, opening up exciting scope for collaboration. With the funds raised, they will develop digital products, such as online courses, and hire additional staff.

Taking sports to the next level

At Ignite Sport UK, we were founded with the aim of inspiring children with a love of sport. We run a wide range of courses, including community coaching, elite academies, and holiday camps to encourage the uptake of physical activity, aimed at children from as young as 4 years old, to young adults of 18. We offer the chance for young people to learn as well as have fun, so our activities are government-backed and we offer the following qualifications: NGB coaching, NVQs, BTECs, and ActivTech awards.

As a central part of our community, we have excellent collaborations with key organisations. Our key partnership is with Oxford City FC, with whom we developed the Oxford Football Partnership, alongside the City of Oxford College, which is a programme supporting around 100 teenagers. The Oxford City FC Football Academy provides the opportunity for aspiring football players to take part in a comprehensive training and playing schedule to refine their skills. We also work with Oxford City Ladies' FC to run girls-only camps, inspiring more girls to take up the sport, and we are a large-scale provider for the McDonald's Fun Football scheme, reaching over 500,000 children.

This is an exciting time for Ignite Sports UK as we plan to roll out digital products to accompany our services and increase the effectiveness of our training. We will use the funds raised in this campaign to develop online course that will enable coaches, teachers and activity leadership practitioners to gain our leadership skills, analysis tools, practical training tips and support on-the-go. This will increase our scope for internationalisation— in fact, we have developed partnerships in Japan to develop our training provision. We will also recruit further staff to assist as we enter into the next phase of our business growth.
