Unit 8 Organisation of Sports Events

This unit is internally assessed and externally moderated by OCR.

UNIT AIM: Sports events vary in size, impact and purpose but all involve sharing a passion and love for different sporting activities. From local leagues and competitions to mega events such as the Olympics, sport has the power to bring people together for a common aim or purpose. Events such as the London Marathon and Sport Relief demonstrate individuals’ drive and purpose in raising money for charity through sport. Also, local voluntary sports clubs organise and run events to increase participation and numbers and to help raise funds for their grass roots teams.

​This unit is designed for you to develop skills in planning, promoting and delivering a sports event; with a focus primarily on your individual role as well as working as part of a team and reflecting on your input and future personal development. This unit will enable you to establish transferrable skills which can be used within sport and active leisure as well as within the fitness industry. It will also enhance skills such as team work, organisation and safeguarding awareness.
