The Youth Sport Award (YSA) supports the development of character, citizenship, SMSC and British values through PE and school sport. It aims to improve behaviour, attitudes to learning and develops emotional resilience and wellbeing in young people.
The YSA is a reward and recognition scheme for young people aged between 7-24 years to evidence their learning, progress and achievement in and through sport. Its purpose is to evidence learning, progress and achievement in and through sport. It aims to build positive lifestyle habits and behaviours and empowers young people to take ownership of developing their own skills.
Supported by partners Loughborough University, this programme is the first of its kind to develop and grow leadership and management skills using the power of sport. It helps to support wider academic achievement and improve physical and emotional wellbeing by incentivising daily physical activity.
