Sign up online

The week, which will take place from 23-27 June, is a celebration of school sport and is open to all schools across the country.

This year schools are being urged to devote a full week to using sporting themes and activities across all their subject areas and inspire their young people to take part in at least five hours of sport and physical activity.

National School Sport Week is a highlight in the summer calendar for schools and since 2009 9.6 million young people and 22,000 schools have taken part.

Schools that sign up for National School Sport Week can receive free resources, toolkits and ideas to help run exciting events and activities that will inspire all your pupils.

By pledging their support they are in with a chance of winning a visit from a Youth Sport Trust Olympic or Paralympic ambassador.

Alison Oliver, Managing Director of the Youth Sport Trust, said:

"At the Youth Sport Trust we are passionate about getting children involved in more PE and sport.

"National School Sport Week is the perfect time for schools to put sport at the heart of school life and inspire their pupils learning and passion by encouraging all their pupils to get involved.

"In previous years we have seen some spectacular events with thousands of young people taking part in a variety of sports, some for the very first time.

"That is why we are encouraging schools to get all of their pupils doing at least 5 hours of physical activity during the week."

Register for National School Sport Week now to be in with the chance of a visit from one of our Olympic or Paralympic Ambassadors. To inspire your pupils and help you shape your week, a number of resources will be made available to you. We will send you an email with more details once the resources are ready for download.
