CORONAVIRUS AND YOUNG LEADER TRAINING

Due to current restrictions on physical distancing we have suspended delivery of our regular programme until we receive further guidance from government / DfE and Youth Sports Trust. This will include,  Sports Crew & PhysiFUN Champions Training as well as My First Steps and the Gifted & Talented leadership academy.

In order to support the development of your pupils and to help provide intra school opportunities please see details of our new virtual Sports Organiser Squad training, available from the end of October 2020. 

You can also access the PhysiFUN at Home videos and PhysiFUN at Home cards which have been adapted so that the games can be delivered at home with minimal space or equipment.

What is PhysiFUN

PhysiFUN is a card-based activities pack, focusing on ‘Physical Fundamentals’ and developed to support schools to motivate and engage their least active pupils.

It's a great way to implement some of the key ideas from the Change4Life programme and is a core part of the countywide PALSS campaign designed to exploit the power of physical activity to improve wellbeing.

How it works

PhysiFUN provides an easy way to target inactive or disengaged pupils and help motivate them to become more physically active, using simple structured activities to develop agility, coordination, balance and fitness.

It requires minimal teacher input and no additional funding to create a fun, vibrant and exciting activity sessions, which give young people the confidence and competence to take part. It also provides a fantastic leadership opportunity for KS2 pupils (see below).
