John Paul 2 Foundation 4 Sport Clubs & Schools

The Foundation exists to initiate, motivate, encourage and show others how to set up a sports club.

There are six types of club associated with JP2F4S:

1. School PETS Clubs

Our School PIES Education Through Sport Clubs are able to access the School PETS Clubs resources area on our website, upon payment of an annual subscription.  The school appoints an Ambassador (staff or senior student) whose role is to communicate with JP2F4S, sending sporting statistics, reports of activities and pictures for our website.  Our School Liaison will visit every half-term to monitor, encourage and advise on its sport activities.

2. After-School Clubs

The Foundation seeks to persuade the SMT and Governors to open the school, without charge, for a JP2F4S Club. Our JP2F4S Coordinator will guide the school, using our tested template, to set up and run their After-School Club.  These clubs are funded, in part, by the subs of those using them.

3. Stand-alone Clubs

We support these clubs with our administration; monitor and encourage them through our JP2F4S Coordinator and find funding whenever required.

4. Community Clubs

We aim to inspire the congregation to set up a committee, then enable, facilitate, monitor and mentor those running the club to help it grow and link up/ compete with other similar clubs in their area.

5. Young Ex-Offenders Clubs (in development)

6. Overseas Clubs

The Foundation provides access to School PETS Clubs resources and we identify how we can help the clubs develop and thrive.

Armed with that information, please meet our JP2F4S sports clubs and schools – they are UK based and international:
