School Games organisers changing the way they work
Agilitas Sports’ School Games partnership would normally be working with schools and sports clubs, running weekly tournaments and competitions, engaging pupils in all sorts of sports.
At this time of the school year, hundreds of pupils have usually enjoyed themselves playing sport or taking on leadership and volunteering roles.
So trying to keep young people healthy as we have moved in and out of coronavirus lockdowns has proved challenging for School Games organiser, Rupert Gibson.
He has been talking with schools weekly, finding out what they are doing to support pupils in school and at home and offering support and solutions.
Throughout the year challenges, competitions and lessons have been sent to schools to try tohelp them stay healthy and happy. Rupert would love to reach more pupils at home and in school and was keen to tell us how people can get
He said: “We are currently running a ‘Walk to 5K’ challenge where young people can either see how far they can walk in 45 minutes or see how quickly they can run 1, 3 or 5k. They can enter individually or take part as families. Have a look at www.agilitassports.com/walk-to-5k for full details.
“Going forward into Term 4 we have an exciting new challenge for vulnerable and key worker primary pupils to try in school.
“We have put together some mini golf activities for pupils to try and hope to get into as many schools as possible to deliver these as part of a fun golf day.
“Schools without equipment can borrow and with the support of The Golf Foundation we have free sessions at
local clubs and golf equipment lined up as prizes as well as our usual certificates and medals”.
Any schools around Bourne, Deeping, Spalding, Holbeach, Long Sutton, Sutton Bridge and surrounding villages who would like to find out more can get in touch with Rupert via email@example.com or can visit www.agilitassports.com/tri-golf-challenge
