Important update: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Amid the developing Coronavirus situation, the Youth Sport Trust has released important information surrounding its events and mass gatherings.

Following official Government and Public Health England advice, we have taken the decision to postpone all Youth Sport Trust events and planned mass gatherings until the 24 April.

 By this time the decision will have been reviewed and revised plans put in place. This is not a decision we have taken lightly. Keeping the young people, teachers, head teachers, stakeholders, and partners that we work with safe and protecting their wellbeing is our absolute priority.

Our team will be working remotely during this period and will be available to contact through the usual channels. We will continue to keep our networks updated.

From everyone at the Youth Sport Trust, we encourage you to keep communicating, keep active and support others where you can. Remember, this is a time for connection more than ever. 

For more information visit our #StayHomeStayActive web page for information and support on how you and your family can keep active at home.
