Merry Christmas from #TeamDreamBIG
Who else is dreaming of a white Christmas?
For us it would certainly be the icing on the cake for what has been an amazing year of business at Dream Big Sports as we come up to our 1st official birthday on 23rd December. We have endured a very demanding but rewarding first 12 months as an organisation and the highlight reel would simply be too long to detail in this blog but we would like to share just a few memorable moments with you…
Our fantastic start began back in February when we partnered up with local hero and Olympic gold medallist Nicola White to provide an unforgettable experience for the children of Castleton Primary School. We were also inspired by her amazing visit which led us to launching our very first sports academy, this has since doubled and our sessions are already seeing over 25 children per week enjoying football fun on a Friday evening! Later on in the year we made the decision to trial our holiday camp provision in a new location and what a success it was, we now have three exciting holiday camps running every half term giving young people the chance to enjoy sports whilst away from school. Most recently our education programme has seen the addition of new partner schools that joined #TeamDreamBIG ahead of the 2017/18 academic year, their feedback has been brilliant and we are hopeful of a long lived relationship in the future.
Away from our coaching delivery we have been fortunate enough to be involved with some amazing initiatives and events including the BBC Get Inspired programme which now enables us to promote our work to a huge audience on a national platform. Then to finally end our year being crowned Rochdale’s “New Business Of The Year 2017” was a surreal moment for all of our team, to be recognised at such an early stage of our journey was incredible and has provided us with the motivation to do great things in 2018 and beyond.
We are sure you’ll agree that it has been an action packed 12 months and none of this would be possible without the continuous hard work that goes on behind the scenes from our staff, coaches, advisors and partners. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us so far and we already can’t wait to get started in the New Year where we promise to be even bigger and better than ever before!
From everyone at Dream Big Sports we’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
