This is your chance to be a part of the Olympic legacy, get some exercise and have fun with your friends.
The Sport Makers programme uses the inspirational pull of London 2012 to recruit, train and deploy thousands of NEW volunteers to make sport happen across the country.
North Yorkshire Sport are looking for adults to either get together with friends and colleagues to play sport or volunteer in clubs and communities.
It could be something as simple as rounding up your friends to play a regular game of tennis, get down to zumba sessions or help out at your local club.
Sport Makers will organise and support hundreds of thousands of new hours of grassroots sport, creating new opportunities across the country, bringing the Olympic and Paralympic values to life in every community.
We want you to get people together and get active.
All it takes is 10 hours to become a Sport Maker.
What kind of things can you do as a Sports Maker?
- Get your mates together for a regular activity informally
E.G. Running in the park, mountain bike rides, zumba
- Organise a team from work to join a local league or challenge a rival department
E.G. Netball or 5-a-side at a local facility
- Pick an event and get friends to train with you and take part
E.G. Reckon you could do a 5k run in half an hour?
- Volunteer in a club or event
E.G. Marshal, scorer
