Aspire Sports win Sporting Initiative of the Year Award

This academic year couldn’t have got off to a better start for Aspire Sports after being recognised earlier this month at the Birmingham Awards.

The Erdington based organisation has been recognised for its commitment to continuously improving the quality of sport in its community, having been awarded the ‘Sporting Initiative Award’ from the Birmingham Awards held on Saturday 10th September at the Vox Conference Arena, Birmingham.

The Birmingham Awards aim to bring the pride of Birmingham together under one roof to recognise the excellence and passion for our beautiful city, acknowledging and awarding those who strive to make our city home.

The ‘Sporting Initiative Award’ is presented to an organisation that works to continuously improve the quality of sport in any of its elements.  To companies that recognise the need to encourage people into sport, and demonstrate that they have and encourage strong links between the community and sport.

Aspire helps children and young people to improve their physical awareness, wellbeing, and academic achievement through a range of sport and physical activity coaching programmes. The company, now in its eleventh year, delivers the programmes to schools, teachers, support staff, early years practitioners, and sports coaches in the Birmingham and West Midlands area. Aspire is also a youth friendly employer, committed to supporting the young people they employ directly and members of their service delivery teams. 

Co-founder and Business Development Director, Paul Griffiths said “I was extremely proud to collect the award on our team’s behalf. The recognition of our success is with thanks to every single one of our team for their hard work and commitment. Thank you also to our supporters who voted for us”.

As well as providing sports coaching to schools and other public sector organisations, Aspire also offers a wide range of sports and activity childcare during school holidays. This includes multi-sports Academy, including football, cricket, and hockey, as well as cycling, gym, music, and stage academies. For more information, contact Aspire on 0121 663 1979.
