PRESENTATIONS

The influence of a positive role model on a child’s life can help sculpt their future. Our athletes therefore embody this role model status, and provide inspirational & motivational assembly style presentations for both primary & secondary schools throughout the UK.

These PowerPoint presentations, usually lasting 1 hour, are both informative & educational, covering a wide range of different topics that engage, entertain, and captivate a student’s imagination.

What’s more, Athletes In Schools can tailor presentations to deliver specific messages.

Whether it’s Anti – Bullying Week, or an Awards Ceremony, we have it covered!

Presentations normally last 1 hour, however schools have the option to either lengthen or shorten this timeframe.

We recommend a minimum of 30 minutes for a presentation, so that athletes can deliver all the information clearly and effectively.

Athlete presentations can take place in any school hall that has the facility of a laptop and projector.

If the school wants a presentation without a PowerPoint, this can then be delivered in any hall.

Alternatively, schools are also given the option of classroom presentations. These involve an athlete presenting to smaller groups of students in a classroom.

As the athlete presentation is on a PowerPoint, schools are asked to provide athletes with a laptop and projector.  Although not essential, if schools could also provide a clicker, this would be ideal.

Athletes will bring the PowerPoint presentation on a memory stick. (A copy of this will also be stored on our company Dropbox, in case of an emergency.

In an assembly style format there is no restriction on the number of students in the presentation.

Our athletes are also more than comfortable to present at parent evenings, award ceremonies, and after school events.

For a classroom presentation however, we ask that groups are kept smaller as for health ad safely reasons we require all students to be sat down during the presentation.
