Derwent Valley Sports Initiative

Derwent Valley Sports Initiative
Community News

It was the dream of our founder and Director, Ashleigh Sowerby (DVSI and DVA), that the sports of cheerleading and gymnastics be accessible to everyone within the local community, stretching across the Derwent Valley area and beyond.

DVSI now operates out of a newly refurbished, ‘specially adapted’ premises located at Prospect Business Park, Consett and DVA now also train within these premises as one of the local organisations that we partner and engage with. 

Our wide range of programmes enable participation in a fun environment that promotes healthy living and minds, enabling participants to make healthy and informed lifestyle choices. Our children and young adults can spend time enjoying the fun activities with friends and can develop valuable social skills within both a sporting and educational environment. 

We would like thank the local council and their funding streams for making this all possible.
