Team Coventry Manager for the International Children’s Games announced – Coventry City Council

The Team Coventry Manager for the International Children’s Games has been appointed and will now begin to work with young athletes and coaches from the city.

Danny Kingham, one of Coventry’s School Games Organisers and city-wide sport event organiser will be the Team Coventry Manager. He will be bringing together the final Team Coventry athletes once all selection events have taken place and the athletes that will represent Coventry have been finalised. 

Today also marks the launch of the official Team Coventry Instagram page where you will find regular updates on the Team and new athletes, event information and general encouragement for Team Coventry.  

Team Coventry will be made up of young people aged between 12-15 from across the city. As the Games is hosted in Coventry this year from 11-16 August, the chance to represent their city during this international event is a once in a lifetime opportunity.  

Danny Kingham, Team Coventry Manager, said: “I’m excited to be managing Team Coventry for the International Children’s Games this year. The event is going to be amazing and I’m looking forward to bringing together all the athletes that become a part of the Team. 

“We are today launching the Instagram for our city’s team, too. It will be full of Team Coventry photos with the athletes training together and we hope this will encourage other teams that will be competing in the Games to either do something similar or use our account as encouragement for their team too. 

“Please follow our journey and support the young athletes in our city.” 

Cllr Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader, Coventry City Council and Chair of International Children’s Games Stakeholder Board, added: “It is great to see that our city’s team now has a manager that will lead them through to the Games. 

“I have a lot of confidence that the Manager will be able to keep Team Coventry in high spirits throughout the Games this summer as we compete in all seven sports whilst ensuring all the young people have a fantastic experience. 

“I would like to encourage all Coventry residents to follow the new Team Coventry Instagram so that we can all join in with the encouragement of our Team both in the run-up to and during the Games.” 

The International Children’s Games will be taking place in Coventry from 11-16 August, 2022.
