AM Small Communities

AMS Rural Programme was initially started in early 2015 with aims of reaching out to primary schools in rural areas and then delivering extra-curricular multi-sports sessions to pupils of all ages. The multi-sports session were designed to give access and opportunity to engage in physical activity which they did not have access to before.

In order to deliver these multi-sports sessions AMS forged partnerships with the Bell Baxter - the local high school and also Active Schools in order to recruit coaches who would volunteer to deliver multi-sport sessions to various rural schools. The pupils recruited engage in Young Leaders Awards at their High School before putting their experiences in the classroom into practice by delivering a set block of classes consisting of varying sports on each occasion.
