Dear Parents/Carers,

Youth Sports Trust have put together an initiative to help your child stay active during these challenging times.

Many children and young people across the UK will be missing out on their usual sport clubs; it is vital for not only for their physical health, but their mental health to stay active. The Youth Sport Trust’s After School Sport Club is about much more than physical fitness. It will help children develop physical literacy and confidence to try lots of new sports, helping all children find a sport for them.

The After School Sport Club will be led by Athlete Mentors from different backgrounds, abilities and sports.

Every day at 5pm from 16 November until 18 December, children and young people can join in with the live broadcast for free on our YouTube channel. Join in the conversation on social using #YSTAfterSchool and tagging @YouthSportTrust across all social media channels. You might need items from around your home for some sessions.

The different daily themes are below:

 Adventure Monday – This might involve getting children to do floor, wall climbing and map

reading all within their living room

 Tuesday Play – Imaginative play utilising resources in the house to create games and activities to get active

 Wild Wednesday – Some high tempo competitive activities involving personal challenges

 Thinking Thursday – Introducing cognitive challenges for children through movement.

Active noughts and crosses and introducing an element of competition – whether that be against themselves, the clock, their siblings or remotely with friends

 Fun Friday – A chance for children to let loose and have some fun. Dancing and doing what makes them feel good.


Lets keep our children Active!
