The annual National School Sport Week campaign takes place in the last week of June every year to celebrate the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people’s wellbeing.
This year, the Youth Sport Trust has 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.
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.
The active challenges all have an emphasis on togetherness, inclusivity and wellbeing. They will be things you can do at home, and where you can engage in straightforward virtual competition with friends, neighbours and family outside your home.
You can register to take part in National School Sport Week by visiting the Youth Sport Trust website: https://www.youthsporttrust.org
There are five different aspects of sport to challenge yourselves throughout the week. You can find them here:
