Welcome to 'Team Greenfield'
On behalf of the ‘Team Greenfield’ Village Olympics Committee we would like to welcome all parents/guardians and participants to the ‘Team Greenfield’ web page which hopefully contains all the information you will need to get involved in this fantastic Saddleworth wide community sports event.
The committee is made up of a number of volunteers/parents from the village who all have a passion for sport and their community. The committee is the body responsible for organising training and events for the village, providing young people with as many opportunities as possible to participate in a range of sports throughout the summer. We strive to adhere to the following Saddleworth Village Olympic core principles in everything we do:
Inclusion – We encourage children to be involved in as many sports as possible. We do not select teams purely on ability alone. We want children to try out sports they might not normally undertake and compete with confidence.
Enjoyment – We want all children (and parents/guardians) to enjoy the games and share the pleasure of being involved in such a unique community event.
Fair Play – We expect the young people who represent ‘Team Greenfield’ to show respect to other competitors and adopt fair play at all times.
As a committee we are very proud of all the children who represent ‘Team Greenfield’ in the Saddleworth Village Olympics and we ask that all parents / guardians support the committee in wanting to make all young people’s experience of the Saddleworth Village Olympics the best it can possibly be by following the above principles throughout the games.
Finally, if you are a parent/guardian, relative or previous participant and you are interested in joining the ‘Team Greenfield’ Village Olympics Committee and giving up some of your time to support this fantastic event please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
