Looking for a bit of sporting action? Want to get the kids inspired to get active?
To celebrate the importance of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people’s wellbeing, the annual National School Sport Week campaign have teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which will aim to unite the country – families, schools, sport and businesses – in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation!
Taking place from Sat 20th – Fri 26th June, the UK-wide campaign will challenge people to take on their families, friends and neighbours in virtual sporting challenges – helping them to connect in an unprecedented period of school closures and social distancing.
It will be supercharged by Sky Sports who will be helping to inspire families across the country to take part.
How it works
The Youth Sport Trust will provide everyone who registers with free videos and activity cards to help you plan a series of challenges across National School Sport Week at Home. You will receive these well in advance of the week itself so you’ll have plenty of time to plan your activities.
The active challenges will all have an emphasis on togetherness, inclusivity and wellbeing. They will be things you can do within the home, and where you can engage in straightforward virtual competition with friends, neighbours and family outside your home.
They will also provide you with ideas for sharing your challenges online during the week using the hashtag #NSSWtogether.
