Who's coming? 

1617893571_fil_kamps.jpgMy love for football developed when I was 5 years old, on the playgrounds at primary school. I would play at break, lunch and after school in my back garden. When it was so dark outside that I could no longer see I would come in and watch football on the TV, often England and dreaming that one day I would get the chance to represent my country. 16 years later, that dream finally came true earning my first cap at the 2016 World Cup in Italy,  I went on to compete in the Deaflympics for Great Britain and earned 13 caps for my country before retiring aged 24.

Who are we?


Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Burnt Oak Primary School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns. 

Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Children are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.

While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all children have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!

SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance. 

During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.

Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.

Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.  

Burnt Oak Primary School is receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Fil Kamps on the 18th of June and we need your support!

The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.

Why is this important?

Burnt Oak Primary School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdowns and with the help of a visit from Fil Kamps the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.

Burnt Oak Primary School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.

How can you help?

We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of Fil Kamps and to raise funds for key resources for Burnt Oak Primary School.

If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
