Emma Bunton Launches Education Programme For Isu European Figure Skating Championships 2012Pop super-star and Dancing on Ice judge, Emma Bunton has today launched the Education Programme for the ISU European Figure Skating Championship (EFSC) hosted in Sheffield from 23-29 January 2012.
The Education Programme is designed to introduce the sport of figure skating to young people in Britain through classroom learning materials and the chance to experience the spectacular action first hand at the EFSC via the ‘Free Tickets for Schools’ initiative.
Event ambassador, Emma is a great supporter of the Education Programme, she commented: “I’m really excited to support the Education Programme for the European Figure Skating Championships 2012. It is vital to encourage young people to get involved in sport not only for the physical benefits from being active regularly but also to give them the opportunity for socialisation and development of interpersonal skills.
“I believe ice skating is an exhilarating activity that provides an excellent source of exercise and entertainment for the entire family. What better way to get involved than to go along and support the GB elite at the Europeans in January, and then go and try it out yourself.”
The event is offering 30 tickets to each school on a first come first served application process, for use by pupils, teachers and guardians alike, so don’t miss out and encourage your school to apply now. For more information on tickets, the education pack and associated school competitions please visit europeans2012.co.uk/schools.
The EFSC will see 200 elite international skaters from 36 countries descend on Sheffield to compete in front of crowds of 9,000 at the Motorpoint Arena, in Ladies, Men, Pairs and Dance disciplines.
The National Ice Skating Association (NISA) worked in partnership with Sheffield International Venues (SIV), Sheffield City Council’s Major Sports Event Unit, development agency Welcome to Yorkshire and UK Sport to bring the European Championships to Sheffield.
