Inspiring Young People through the School Games

Sport and physical activity encourages the growth of numerous qualities within young people.

The School Games delivers physical activity via a local network supported nationally. It’s a fun and enjoyable way of engaging all young people through school sport and physical activity.

You can take part as a competitor, young leader, official or as part of a media team, focusing on blogging and promoting sport and physical activity.

It inspires young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of daily activity and meaningful competition. This supports the wider development of young people.

School staff and event organisers are able to celebrate success around six key values: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork. We call this the ‘Spirit of the Games’.

We passionately believe that being active is important as ever. However, safety is paramount and it is crucial that everyone follows current government guidance when leaving the home to exercise and accessing open spaces. #StayActiveStaySafe.
