Strong evidence supports that sport encourages aspiration, improves health and fitness, and brings communities together. Yet despite this, far too few young people – particularly in deprived areas – have access to good sporting facilities, coaches and role models.
More importantly many young people don’t have the confidence to put themselves forward in the first place. At DMSF we utilise the power and disciplines of physical activity to give young people opportunities to enjoy sport, to challenge them and develop resilience, focus and commitment.
DMSF is in the unique position of having an Olympic coach as part of the coaching team. Vicente Modahl has an impressive background of coaching athletes to success in major Championships – he has coached 23 Olympians and is hopeful that the 24th will come from DMSF.
