National School Sport Week at Home

SHARE:

Active Cumbria, part of Cumbria County Council’s Public Health team is preparing to join the Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports to help young people and families up and down the country engage in a week of virtual sporting challenges.

With young people set to miss out on a school sports day this summer, the Youth Sport Trust’s annual National School Sport Week campaign is this year being opened up to parents and families and reinvented as National School Sport Week at Home.

Taking place from 20 to 26 June, the UK-wide campaign will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the chance to capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they have been missing out on during weeks of school closures and social distancing.

Active Cumbria will be encouraging schools and families at home to take part in the week by signing up to the challenges available from the Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports.
 
Richard Johnston, Senior Manager (Operations) at Active Cumbria said:
“We’re really pleased to be able to support National School Sport Week at Home. Young people’s wellbeing is suffering and the closure of schools has made it harder for them to benefit from the power of sport and play. It was also extremely disappointing to have to cancel the large-scale Cumbria School Games events this year due to Covid-19, but having a week-long focus on sport is a chance to celebrate the impact it has on young people’s wellbeing. We may be apart, but sport has the power to bring us together.”

In previous years National School Sport Week has seen thousands of schools join in a week-long celebration of school sport and Physical Education, and their important role in enhancing young people’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

This year, Sky Sports has teamed up with the Youth Sport Trust to supercharge the campaign, helping to inspire families across the country to take part. This builds on a long-term relationship between the broadcaster and charity.
 
Youth Sport Trust Chief Executive Ali Oliver said: “The Youth Sport Trust is thrilled to see supporters like Active Cumbria backing National School Sport Week at Home to ensure no child misses out on their school sports day this summer.
 
“Right now, young people are missing their friends and missing the sense of connection they get through sport. Sport has such a crucial role to play in promoting young people’s wellbeing and this has never been more apparent than it is now. After weeks of isolation we hope that YST National School Sport Week at Home 2020 can help bring families, communities, schools and sports clubs back together.”
 
Anyone can register to take part and will receive videos and activity cards to help them plan a series of challenges across the week for their families, neighbours, friends or colleagues.
