Charities to Support this Christmas: Sports Connections Foundation (SCF)

Sport is powerful. It helps so many of us in ways we don’t even realise. In fact, many of us don’t know what we’d do without it. If any of us at Coacha HQ has an injury and we can’t train, we always admit to feeling a little bit lost.

We love sport’s ability to give us a sense of meaning and purpose in life. Sports Connections Foundation (SCF) also recognize the importance of sport. They work to help thousands of children each week understand the global citizenship, hardship and poverty that other children in the world face.

They want to use sport to “engage, inspire, empower and educate children”, and so far, these guys have done this with over half a million children in the UK.


Sporting Wishes


SCF do an amazing job at giving ‘sporting wishes’ to those brave children who are dealing with life-limiting illnesses. With an aim to provide respite from exhausting treatments and time in hospital, SCF aims to ‘make dreams come true’ for some of the most commendable children you’ll come across.

An example of a sporting wish they made come true is for 9 year old, Leah and John. They attended the England V Sweden friendly match, met the former England manager and helped the teams; an experience they’ll never forget.


Inspire Through Sport


With a focus on making positive futures for vulnerable/disadvantaged children throughout the UK, SCF’s Inspire Through Sport program helps children in the movement from primary to secondary school.

They run various mentorship schemes and create exciting opportunities to help develop children into ‘the next generation of role models’.


How can you help?


ProKick Schools Challenge

This challenge helps fund programs and activities that SCF run! They also split some of the money with schools taking part.

The ProKick Schools Challenge is a great way to raise money, with over half a million children taking part so far. Set with strong values at heart, the challenge aims to educate the children (topics such as bullying) whilst they fundraise.

If you know a school looking to fundraise, make sure you click here and send them the information.

Donate

Charities like Sports Connections Foundation honestly couldn’t operate without help from people like you.

If you’ve not got time to fundraise or participate in one of their events, you can simply donate to help this truly wonderful charity help strong and brave children all over the UK.

Couldn't run my swimming classes without it now. The team are just great, really helpful, will always help you out. The system is really reliable - I tried a lot of different pieces of software and none matched Coacha for price and features. Thanks guys. x

We have just started using Coacha this season and honestly it is one of the best decisions I have made this year! I used to spend hours on admin, chasing people for payments, taking cash & cheques to the bank and then checking to make sure the payments had actually gone into our account. Now I no longer have to write out invoices or handle cash and Coacha wil... l do the chasing for payments for me - which is amazing! Whenever I have any questions I get straight on the phone and their amazing team have either got the problem solved in seconds, or they get back to me as soon as they can with a solution. I cannot recommended this software and the support team enough. Thank you from one happy and less stressed Cheerleading coach!  read more

Coacha is superb. I run a shooting range in Gloucestershire and it helps me keep on top of my admin. Helpful support. Very good software that they should charge more for!

Before heading into our second season as a club and doubling in size we were very apprehensive about the administration aspect. I am so grateful to have come across coacha as it has made my life seamless in terms of the membership process among other factors such as data protection. We have also set up a stripe account to collect our monthly fees and I am very ex... cited about this as it is going to completely eliminate the tiresome process of chasing people. The report section of coacha is also really handy to be able to track who has set up their subscription. Taylor & the coacha team’s response time to feedback is excellent and I have been very impressed with the service so far. Coacha is revolutionising the way we work and they are doing a fantastic job!  read more

The Coacha software has made managing our swim school so much easier! So simple and straight forward to use and saves hours of admin work.
No more chasing people for payments getting half cash half bank transfers or having to think who paid what, everything is sorted out with a click of a button! Highly recommend, great software!
