Hinckley & Bosworth School Sport & Physical Activity Network

The Hinckley and Bosworth School Sport and Physical Activity Network (HBSSPAN) has a core purpose to promote and co-ordinate participation in lifelong physical activity for all young people.

Key to their role is to build links between all of the schools in our borough to develop school sports opportunities both within school, between schools and to the wider community.

This includes coordinating the School Games programme, running various level 2 competitions to qualify for the level 3 competition in the new year. In addition HBSSPAN actively promote various voluntary opportunities to encourage students to develop additional skills such as leadership and teamwork. Also they play a role in students making steps towards involvement with community sport clubs through the development of Leadership Academy's.
