At the not-for-profit World Stingball Association we firmly believe that this project is needed to support the government and local council's goals of getting more people more active in the UK, especially those in socially-deprived areas, starting with children from year 7 and upwards as well as young adults (and families) in this scheme. Should you wish to support us, we can make regular sports activity a part of life for those children who already participated over the summer but who can no longer afford to continue. We started with a very successful project which was sponsored by Active Cheshire in 2016. That initial pilot allowed us to introduce and deliver this new sport to almost 700 participants over a 12-week period, leading up to summer holidays. The majority were children (including both boys and girls) at after-school sessions and youth clubs as well as young adults and families, playing together! It's such fun! Initial funding for the pilot was £9,000 from Active Cheshire and many of those original participants (and some parents and PE teachers) from the schools, colleges and youth clubs are asking us if it can be repeated. Your support would allow us to maintain regular after-school activities and recruit two new coaches to deliver these sessions, whilst attracting volunteer play-makers to demo the sport in new venues across the country. Our goal for this project would be to get over 1,000 children and young people (and mums and dads as well) having fun together whilst becoming more active and, as a result, becoming more healthy. Many youngsters (especially those living in deprived areas) can face fears, worries and perceived inadequacies which can materialise as anger, frustration and aggression the sport of Stingball can provide a controlled way for players to let out their aggression and frustrations. We firmly believe that, when people find a sport which is great fun to play, then it's a lot less like a workout and more people will be encouraged to become active and play it on a regular basis. And did we mention that many adult women playing the game have shown that they can burn up to 700 calories in a 50-minute session? Fitness needs to be perceived as fun and games or we subconsciously avoid it! Stingball makes that perception a reality! Sustainability is key to any activity in order for it to make a difference to people and communities over time - your regular funding support would benefit a good many people and allow this project to be sustained.
