A Permanent Home for the Sheffield Sharks, Sheffield Hatters & the RESPECT Programme



Based at the heart of the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, we are proud to announce the Canon Medical Arena will be the official new home for the Sheffield Sharks and the Sheffield Hatters (women) professional basketball teams and it doesn’t stop there, the Canon Medical Arena will also be home to the Canon Medical Sheffield Sharks RESPECT Programme.

For the last eight years, close to 10,000 primary school children, at sixteen inner-city Sheffield schools, have been positively impacted by the Sheffield Sharks RESPECT programme. This initiative consists of active basketball participation with players and citizenship workshops covering online safety and personal health topics.

For young people involved in these programmes, the Canon Medical Arena will provide a single location with sports arena and classroom facilities. This will help expand the outreach programme and support the curriculum leveraging sport as a vehicle to tackle many social issues.
