New Series of BiteSSSize Best Practice Webinars Launched
SSS begins the 20/21 series of BiteSSSize Best Practice webinars with a collaborative approach to reducing the environmental impact of sport.
During the 19/20 year SSS highlighted best practice from the Tribe through a series of webinars. This included the #FullTimeOnInitiations campaign at RGU and the progress made by Fife College in working through the College Sport Award.
SSS have now planned an ambitious series of webinars for the 20/21 calendar covering topics such as mental health, volunteering, club best practice and disability sport.
The first in this years series will focus on our newest value – sustainability – and the environmental impact of microplastics on synthetic pitches. This will be delivered in collaboration with Fidra, KIMO International, the Centre for Sports Facilities and Technology (Trondheim, Norway) and EUAC.
If you play football or rugby on an artificial pitch, you’ve probably spotted them: tiny granules of rubber, clinging to your kit, collecting in your shoes and washing down the drain in the shower. These tiny microplastic particles, known as performance infill, give the pitch the bouncy feel of real grass, but they also pose a risk of plastic pollution, escaping the pitch and ending up in local soils and waterways. The Pitch In project, created by Fidra and KIMO International, aims to raise awareness of this hidden but important issue and highlight different ways we can all Pitch In to reduce microplastic.
