Jay Rowley – Community Sport Manager

Although his main focus is ensuring the successful day to day management of the centre; from staffing to budgeting, health and safety to programming, Jay’s main role involves the development of new and continuous high quality initiatives offered at the centre, with the aim of creating opportunities for all members of the community to participate in sport and leisure activities.

Jay also leads on the partnership work with our cluster primary schools; providing the best support, facilities and opportunities to ensure the young people of Ryedale experience high quality PE and sport throughout their school life, extra curricular activities and beyond.
