The Foundation's 'Save our Sports Week’ has launched today to help get children moving, whether they’re at home or have started returning to classes.
12 schools across Doncaster will join those children who remain at home to participate in daily activities and challenges which include exercise circuits, family workouts and other traditional sports day events.
‘Save Our Sports Week’ will also see schools challenge each other by seeing how fair their pupils, staff and parents can walk, bike or run, with the winner receiving some free sporting sessions delivered by the Foundation staff.
The daily challenges will give children a chance to enjoy sports day which looked like it may have been forgotten amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
Each of the challenges will be completely different and won’t need any equipment other than things you can find around the home.
Kelly Jackson-Powell, sports development officer at the Foundation, said: “This is a great opportunity for children to compete against other children and to keep active.
“We wanted to make sure that the children didn't miss out on their annual sports day, and by running the ‘save our sports day’ campaign virtually, people will be able to take part regardless of whether they’re at home or are still going to school.”
The challenges have been split into two categories for KS1 and KS2, with daily prizes for the winner of each.
Activities are still available on our social media channels and can be accessed at any time, free of charge.
