Y1 Sport Partners with Scarborough College: Elevating Standards in Sports Through Sustainability

We are excited to announce a groundbreaking development at Y1 Sport, as we begin our first multi-sport contract partnership with Scarborough College. This collaboration promises to set new standards in sports kit provision, focusing on sustainability, media and high performance.

A Sporting Powerhouse

Scarborough College is a prominent sporting institution in the north of England, known for its significant contributions to sports such as hockey and cricket. The college competes in Tier 1 of National Hockey and has produced several athletes who are now prominent in the Yorkshire cricket pathway. This institution’s dedication to sport across various disciplines makes it an exemplary partner for our innovative endeavours.

Pioneering Sustainable Teamwear

In a major step forward, Scarborough College's 1st XI teams will be equipped with our state-of-the-art ENVO2.1 range, which is crafted from recycled materials. This initiative highlights our commitment to minimising the environmental impact of sports apparel. Scarborough College will also be the first school in the UK to partner with a carbon-neutral teamwear supplier, reflecting our mutual commitment to a sustainable future in sports.

Enhancing Media and Social Media Engagement

In addition to providing sustainable athletic gear, Y1 Sport is committed to assisting Scarborough College in amplifying their media presence. We will work closely with the college to professionalise their social media platforms, ensuring they can showcase their sporting achievements and environmental initiatives more effectively. This will not only enhance the visibility of their sport programs but also highlight their pioneering role in adopting eco-friendly practices.
