Find a Sports Star

Find a Sports Star is a free talent search initiative supporting sport’s governing body in affording quality training opportunities to new upcoming talent across a variety of sports. The initiative is supported by GLL (Better Brand) who have day to day operational management of Belfast Leisure Centres and is open to young people aged 6 - 16 in selected age group sports chosen by governing bodies as key areas for development.

Sports governing bodies involved will conduct testing and coaching sessions with an aim of signposting youths into their mainstream sports squads and best practice clubs. As well as sessions taking place in leisure centres, the programme will also operate in some schools and community settings in February 2020.

We have invested £10,000 in this programme which will enhance the opportunities for younger talented participants to get involved with sport at a high level and potentially become stars of the future.

So we’re inviting you to and try your hand at our free try it events at the four leisure centres listed below. The sessions will begin with some sports tests to let you know what sports your skills possibly best fit followed by three sport specific sessions. All participants will receive a t-shirt and assessment information flyer, as well as information relating to best practice sports club details and their training times and contacts information. Each participant will have the opportunity to try all of the sports on offer, with each session being led by top class sports coaches.

The closing date for registration is Monday 10 February 2020.

The sessions are free to attend, however spaces are limited so register now for fun multi-sports sessions led by the best sports coaches in Belfast.
