Resource Library

Through years of experience and as a result of working in partnership with schools, Youth Sport Trust has developed a wide range of resources to help schools harness the power of PE and school sport. If you cannot find what you're looking for email the membership team and let us know.

In this section it is possible to view our resource library, which is a collection of downloadable documents, presentations and films. All of which are designed to share our knowledge and understanding of how schools can use PE and school sport to improve the wellbeing, leadership skills and achievement of all children across the whole school.
