The purpose of the Sport Strategy Group is to provide clear leadership, management and advocacy to ensure that the overall vision of the School Games and School Sport ambitions are understood, shared and achieved. The ambitions are:

  • A high quality, progressive, inclusive competition programme for all the young people of Greater Manchester. (The Group also acts as the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the School Games.
  • All young people who are gifted in PE and talented in sport identified, appropriately supported and signposted to world class talent development programmes.
  • All young people offered the opportunity to progress from school to community sport.
  • High quality, dynamic and sustained professional development for all coaches working on Greater Manchester school sites.
