Casey Stoney, Captain of the Women’s England/GB Football Team, was in Louth to kick start the Sky Sports Living for Sports Scheme at Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College.

As one of the ambassadors for the scheme, Casey spent the morning working with students from the college, promoting fitness, sport and exercise and the importance of participation.

She explained to an enthusiastic group of students, how she came to be in the enviable position she is in now, through perseverance and determination. Her presentation lasted approximately 30 minutes and then she worked more closely with a smaller group of students, detailing what the scheme involved. These students, as part of the scheme, will have to take the lead in warm ups, cool downs and various parts of the sessions.

She gave them ideas and plenty of knowledge to ensure these activities are both enjoyable and effective.

The group really enjoyed spending time with her and were very keen to ask questions at the end of the session.

Casey will be returning to college later on in the Academic Year to monitor progress and offer more advice to the students.

Casey is dedicated to promoting sport and fitness, helping to fulfil the Sporting Legacy inspired by the 2012 Summer Olympics, hence her involvement with schemes such as the Sky Sports, Living for Sports.
