Community Key Sports

Following on from the "Isle of Man Sport & Recreation Strategy 2002-2012" Isle of Man Sport offered the Island's Governing Bodies of Sport to apply for CKS (Community Key Sport) status. Each sport was asked to complete a comprehensive questionnaire showing that they had a strong development structure in place, or have the potential to develop such an infrastructure and have an appeal to young people.

 

Once selected the sports were required to establish a Development Group which would identify the structure for development of the sport across the Island; identify their strengths and weaknesses and prepare action plans and identify responsibilities. If they were able to identify funding sources, Sports Council agreed to help them with a grant to employ a Sports Specific Development Officer for their sport.

Isle of Man Sport are actively seeking sponsors to assist these invaluable roles.


The Community Sports that have been selected are:

Part time Development Officer - Josh Green (Tel: 651572)
