Premier League and BT celebrate disability programme with ‘Festival of Sport’ +

12th July 2017

This week our DS Active team took part in a special ‘Festival of Sport’ event hosted by the Premier League and BT at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Aylesbury, to celebrate the first successful year of the Premier League and BT’s partnership.


The ‘Festival of Sport’ was hosted by BT presenters Abi Griffiths and Jake Humphrey, and saw participants from twenty clubs, who run the Premier League and BT Disability programme, take part in a range of different sports, including athletics, boccia and basketball, each developing their own skills throughout the event by recording their best times and results at each sports station.


The three-year Premier League and BT Disability programme aims to inspire disabled people through sport and will see the organisations work together to provide funding to Premier League clubs to create more opportunities for disabled people across England and Wales.


Since the Premier League and BT Disability programme was launched at the London Stadium last September, clubs have engaged over 10,000 disabled people and 27% of those taking part in club sessions have been female.


The programme looks to encourage disabled people to be more physically active and to help access talent pathways and more mainstream opportunities. Other supportive work has been done in partnership with the clubs, The Shippey Campaign and The Lord Taverners to implement sensory rooms at stadiums, following successful introductions at Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Watford.


Jake Humphrey, BT Ambassador, said: “It's amazing to see all of these young kids, giving it their all, and just having a brilliant day. There's a good competitive spirit. 


“The important thing, is that without this Premier League and BT initiative, a lot of these groups wouldn't be put on because it just costs so much money and the finances simply wouldn't be there. You come on a day like this and you see that absolutely it is making a difference. It's really important.” 


Nick Perchard, Head of Community, Premier League added: “The Festival of Sport was designed to bring together the inspiring individuals from clubs who have been taking part in disability sessions over the past season, to share their stories and experiences, whilst also trying a range of different sports.


“The event has been the perfect way to celebrate the first year of the partnership with BT and to showcase the great inclusive work that clubs are delivering week-in-week-out. I look forward to seeing how this programme continues to develop over the next two years.”

Tigers Trust Host South African U13 Football Team +

5th July 2017

This week, Tigers Trust plays host to an U13 Football Team from South Africa,Tramways FC. The Trust have planned a week of exciting activties and experiences for the team including stadium tours, football tournaments and visiting tourist attratctions. 


Tramways FC use football as a vehicle to give children the opportunity to play and have fun in a safe and controlled environment. The under 13 squad consist of players from various disadvantaged communities that were created by the Apartheid government. These communities are infected with gangs, drugs and high unemployed youth and early school drop outs. Most of the squad’s daily challenge is to keep safe and focus on staying in school due to gang violence that on the increase on the Cape Flats.


The street is very unsafe and with limited recreation facilities they have to find safe spaces outside their respective communities. Tramways FC provides this safe space with weekly training session. During this time the boys can play football and feel safe. The squad has been together for four years and have now managed to gain promotion to the Super league; a very competitive league in Cape Town Tygerberg LFA.


The reason the team have travelled to Hull, is because 10 years ago, the Tramways FC Coach, Coach Desiree, had the experience of being coached by Matt Barr, a member of the Tigers Trust team and since then, always had the desire to expose children to opportunities outside their daily living space.  


Coach Desiree, commented: 

"I have been involved with football  development for the past 10 years. In 2008 I had the privilege of completing a coaching course conducted by Coaching for Hope football with Matt Barr, from the Tigers Trust. This opportunity will be amazing for the team; I believe that the life-skills and valuable lessons that you learn from visiting other countries can add to your desire and hunger for success." 


U13 Tramways FC player, Ryan, commented:

"We have all been watching English Football on television and dreamt of going to England. When our Coach Desiree told us we might travel to England, we all got super excited. We looking forward to travelling to a new country and playing football with other children. We would like to visit some of the stadiums and experience football in England."    


Tigers Trust  Project Coordinator, Matt, has organised the trip and arranged for the team to visit Anfield Stadium, The National Football Museum, Gravity, The Deep and Beverley Minster and in addition to this, partake in skill drills with Hull City Academy and get invovled in local football tournaments. 


We will keep you updated of the teams actvities on our social media platforms over the next week! 

Premier League Schools Tournament +

24th May 2017

The Premier League Schools Tournament took place at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea FC, on Tuesday 23rd May.


The annual tournament, which is one of the competition elements of the Premier League Primary Stars programme, is now in its twelfth year and sees representatives of all 20 Premier League clubs take part in two six-a-side competitions running simultaneously on the pitch – an Under 11s mixed team tournament and an Under 13s girls’ tournament.


Each of the 20 Premier League clubs have held their own heats and qualifiers to determine which schools will be representing them in the Tournament at Chelsea’s home ground. Over 11,000 young people and 1,400 schools have taken part this year.


Swanland Primary School representing Hull City in the Under 11’s competition, whilst St.Marys College represented Hull, for the Under 13’s Tournament.


The young people taking part in the Tournament received an authentic Premier League matchday experience, and walked out to the Premier League anthem, wearing their Hull City kit. The matches were officiated by PGMOL Select Group 2 referees Chris Kavanagh, James Adcock, James Linington, Oliver Langford, Simon Hooper and Tim Robinson.


Both teams played really well but unfortunately were knocked out the group stages, but did themselves, the club and their schools proud. This was echoed by our Senior Sports Coach, Marc Daddy, who accompanied the teams on the trip, he commented:


“It was a fantastic experience for everyone involved, both teams deserved this opportunity and did themselves, their schools and us proud”

Tigers Trust Cycle Challenge +

11th May 2017

Next Friday, four members of staff from the Tigers Trust will take on a fundraising 200-mile cycle challenge to help raise money for both the Trust and Headway, a charity that helps those who have suffered brain injuries by providing support and services to survivors, their families and carers.


The challenge, which will begin on May 19th, will take the staff from Tottenham Hotspur’s White Hart Lane all the way back to the KCOM Stadium in time to deliver the matchball for the Tigers’ final game of the season against Spurs on Sunday 21st May.


As well as raising funds for the Trust, a significant amount of the money raised will be donated to Headway who provided significant support to midfielder Ryan Mason after he sustained a fractured skull against Chelsea in January.


Matt Conway, Tigers Trust Programme Manager and Team Leader for the cycle challenge, said:

“It is going to be a great challenge and one that will be supporting and raising awareness for both the Trust and Headway.

“Headway is a great charity that does some exceptional work and it has been great to partner up with them for this challenge. We have also had support from local and national organisations.

“The ride is a slightly daunting prospect but one that we have all been preparing for and we are now keen to get going.”


Tigers Trust Manager, John Davies added:

“This is a massive challenge for members of my team at the Tigers Trust to take on and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their time, effort and commitment to the challenge. I wish them all the very best of luck and hope all of the Club’s supporters get behind them. I would also like to thank those organisations that have already helped support us in some way.”


Ryan Mason, who is currently recovering from the head injury he suffered in January, is looking forward to welcoming the cycle team back to the KCOM Stadium ahead of the Tigers’ game against his former club Spurs.


“The support I have received since that afternoon at Stamford Bridge has been overwhelming and Headway have played a significant part in that. I’m delighted that the Tigers Trust will be donating some of the funds they raise from this cycle ride to Headway and I wish the team all the very best for what is sure to be a gruelling ride.”

Kicks Tournament brings young people together from across our area +

3rd May 2017

Culture is the theme around Hull and the East Riding during 2017, the Tigers Trust’s Premier League Kicks project decided to play its part in the City of Culture buzz by hosting its own regional tournament and inviting groups of young people from across Hull and East Riding. The tournament took part during the Easter half term, with 7 teams invited to take part on April the 20th 2017.

+2 more


Pete Walker, Premier League Kicks Coordinator, said, “We invited a range of groups from around Hull and East Riding to take part in our 6-a-side tournament, we thought it would be great to have groups from all different corners of our region take part.

We had teams from our own Kicks sessions from the West, East and North of Hull, teams from Goole, Bridlington and a Refugee team. It was great to see such a range of young people from different communities and cultures all take part in this tournament, which was played in good spirit and very healthy competition throughout.

We was also extremely grateful of the volunteers that offered their time in helping referee games, we had a range of volunteers from the University of Hull and the Humberside Police”.


The tournament consisting of 7 teams all played 12 games in a league format to see who could come out on top at the end of the day, in a tightly contested tournament which went right down to the wire saw the team from Goole and the Kicks team representing the KCOM Stadium session finish joint top of the league, only to be split on goal difference which saw the Kicks team take the title.  

Mike Nicholson from the East Riding Council said, “It was a great experience for our teams from Bridlington and Goole to come and take part in the tournament at the Tigers trust Arena, they really enjoyed the day and it’s a good for them to integrate with other young people from similar backgrounds”.

Garry Clutterbrook from Achieve Potentials added, “The young people we brought to the tournament from the east of Hull knew some of the players, so it’s a great opportunity for them to take part in a friendly competition against each other as well as meet new people from around Hull and East Riding”.

As the Humberside Police were in attendance to help officiate games as well as engage with the young people, we caught up with Inspector Craig Mattinson, who said, “It’s a pleasure for us to take part in events like this, it was fantastic to see over 50 young people from different communities, backgrounds and nationalities all engaging with each other through football. It’s a great advert for community cohesion, especially during our city of culture year.


A huge thanks must go to the East Riding Council and Achieve Potentials for bringing their teams to the tournament, as well as the volunteers from the University of Hull and the Humberside Police for officiating games. Thanks must also go to the Premier League for continued support with the PL Kicks project.

The Tigers Trust provides opportunities for primary schools in Hull and East Riding to engage with the only Professional Football Club in the area... a good option if you want to raise the profile of sport within your school.

We achieve positive outcomes by delivering high quality Physical Education and rewarding sporting opportunities... an outstanding use of the Sports Premium!

Please take time to read the following information.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of our offer then please do not hesitate to contact Richard Dexter, our School Sports Coordinator - contact details below.

PE Curriculum Support

Our PE and Sports Specialists have the knowledge and experience to support every child’s development whilst also providing opportunities for school staff to improve their subject knowledge.

All of our coaches are either qualified in, or working towards, the Association for Physical Education Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Support.

Learning programmes consist of a minimum of five lessons. We offer multi-skills and invasion games with various sporting options for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Cost: £40 per lesson (one Senior and Junior Coach per class)

Our planned lessons use differentiation to challenge pupils and forge cross-curricular links including ICT, Literacy and Numeracy where and when appropriate.

Teaching techniques consider all learning styles and activities are planned to enable every child to make progress. Lesson planning and assessment methods are shared with schools, meaning staff can reuse them in future lessons.

Beverley St. Nicholas Primary School are benefitting from being in our partnership. Yvette Fox, Year 4 teacher said, “I have enjoyed seeing how the lessons are planned and then delivered to maximise participation and skill development. The children have time to self-reflect and discuss each other’s performances, as well as discussing rules and strategies. The children responded very well to challenges and this approach develops pupils’ abilities physically, socially and intellectually.”

Extra Curricular Coaching

Our After School Coaching or Lunchtime Activities encourage children to extend their involvement in sport beyond compulsory PE lessons.

We offer a minimum of 5 sessions from a huge range of sports including:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Tag-Rugby
  • Hockey
  • Benchball
  • Dodgeball
  • Cricket
  • Athletics

Other activities or sport specific courses can be delivered on request.

Courses can be open to all or targeted at certain groups - boys, girls, classes. years, gifted and talented or those low on confidence.

Cost: £40 per week or £2 per week for parents.

Competitions and Festivals

One of the best ways for children to learn and develop in sport is by competing. Not only do they feel excited to take part and honoured to represent their school, but it's also a great way to boost their confidence and self-esteem.

In response to Ofsted reporting that not enough schools/children are participating in competitive sport. We offer a variety of competitive sporting opportunities which can be delivered either to individual schools or groups.

We run competitions in all kinds of sports, including:

  • Football
  • Tag-Rugby
  • Netball
  • Hockey
  • Benchball
  • Dodgeball
  • Cricket
  • Athletics
  • Multi-skills


Kerry Scruton, PE Cordinator, Burlington Junior School said, “We have really enjoyed taking part in the Tigers Trust competitions. They have held competitions that we do not normally participate in as part of our local sports partnership, such as football, dodgeball and bench ball. We have had many new children join the extra curricular clubs that Tigers Trust run and this has given them an opportunity to take part in these sports at a competitive level. The children have all really enjoyed these events and it has increased their confidence levels. Receiving medals at the end of an event gives them a real sense of achievement. Our school strives to get as many children involved in sport as possible and Tigers Trust has allowed us to give more children this opportunity and we are looking forward to continuing working with them.”

To ensure your school doesn't miss out, send us your contact details and we'll keep you updated on new events (details are sent via email).

Teacher Training Workshops

In addition to the PE Curriculum Support whereby teachers/school staff observe and learn whilst supporting lessons, we also offer insightful and engaging training events.

We offer this support to schools/teachers in response to Ofsted's claim that teachers lack detailed subject knowledge to enable them to confidently plan, deliver and access quality physical education. By working closely with teachers we have developed a sustainable model which addresses the issues, this should ensure that schools and their pupils will benefit in future years.


Learning from our specialist coaches, your teachers can gain further knowledge, skills and understanding thus benefiting your school and pupils. Topics include Assessments in Physical Education and Differentiation. Delivered after school or can be arranged on Teacher Training Days.

Mike Smith, Assistant Headteacher, Holme On Spalding Moor Primary School said, “The staff have received some super CPD in the delivery of PE within school, particularly invasion games. This will ensure that the good work done by the Tigers Trust coaches can be continued throughout lessons delivered by teachers, in all year groups, right across school. This, together with our link with a high-profile professional sporting organisation, can only benefit our standards within our school.”

To ensure you don't miss out, send us your contact details and we'll keep you updated on new events.

What's happening this Academic year...






Sporting Success Workshops

In addition to increasing sports participation, we promote the values linked to sporting success.

We have developed an interactive workshop for each value...

Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Attitiudes, Respect, Responsibility

Workshops can be delivered to classes, year groups or the whole of Key Stage 2. The children will be given a take home activity and competition with an opportunity to win prizes.

"The staff presented an assembly on Respect and the importance of positive attitudes to our children who were engrossed in the presentation and were 'buzzing' about it afterwards."

"To the children's surprise Chuba Akpom then took part in a Q&A session. He was very friendly, enthusiastic and at ease with the children. He was open to answering all of the questions the children asked."

"It was an experience the children will never forget about and continue to talk about."

-Rebecca Hyde, Year 4 teacher from Sidmouth Primary School.


Cost: £2 per child. Discounts available - contact us for details.

A day at the KC Stadium involves an informative and engaging tour, role play and a sport session. The values linked to sporting success is the theme of the day; Sportsmanship, teamwork, attitudes, respect and responsibility. Cross- curricular options available.

What other school's say:

"Our pupils received lots of interesting facts on the stadium tour, and then took part in a workshop about different values that are important in sport and in life."

"After our visit, we were able to do follow-up work on what we all learnt throughout the day. As a results, we've been able to engage otherwise hard-to-reach pupils. I would strongly recommend a stadium tour to other schools."

-Edward Stewart, Teacher at Collingwood Primary School


Cost: £6 per child per day (10am-2.0pm), £3 per child per half day (10am-12.00am).


Encourage your pupils to lead by example

Julie Ellis, Head teacher, Thorngumbald Primary

"When we received our Sports Funding in 2013, our priority was how best to use it to improve outcomes for all our children. We decided to invest in high quality coaching from an outside provider to give us the additional provision that we were looking for.

From the start we were impressed with the offer from the Tigers Trust. The multi-skills sessions which we bought into gave each of our children the opportunity to experience physical activity regardless of their own background in sport. In fact this was our prime reason for choosing multi-skills as we wanted to reach out to those children who do not attend sports clubs or play for teams outside of school.

Each class, over the year, received five sessions of multi-skills coaching. Ollie and his Apprentice (usually Matt have been very professional in planning for children from Foundation to Year 6. They have engaged the children in each age group, who look forward to their weekly sessions. The pupil comments in our end of year reports to parents demonstrate how the children have enjoyed the Tigers Trust coaching. Members of staff too have commented on how the sessions have moved their own professional development forward. Most are now using ideas they have gained from observing the sessions and in this way the coaching is promoting a higher level of sustainable expertise within the school.

Many thanks to Tiger Trust- we are already looking forward to next year’s sessions!"

Andy Rhodes, Head teacher, Spring Cottage Primary School.

"At the start of the last academic year (September 2013) Spring Cottage was looking to private sport providers to enhance the delivery of PE lessons and support in our curriculum delivery.

After meeting with the Tigers Trust coaches we were confident they would be able to meet our needs. Throughout the year they have worked with our Year 3 pupils enriching their lessons across a variety of sports. The coaches are clearly confident in the delivery of numerous games activities and the pupils have responded enthusiastically across all sessions. The impact the project has had has been mainly around people motivation and their clear enjoyment of sports. The sessions are lively, maintain good pace and ensure children of all abilities are able to access the curriculum.

We will be continuing our association and the delivery of these sessions again in the next academic year. Throughout the year the Tigers Trust has also supported a number of school events such as Sport Relief and Sport Days and again their involvement has motivated the pupils to participate willingly."
