yoUR Activity is a partnership between Matalan, Sporting Pro and Youth Sport Trust, ensuring that children have vital access to sports activity in schools. yoUR Activity offers a range of alternative sport in secondary schools for students in Key Stage 4.
Some of the sports on offer include, ultimate Frisbee, lacrosse, street chair, dougeball, jump rope, tchoukball and indoor rowing. The programme aims to increase participation and whole school impact, addressing the drop-off in sports participation in 14-16 year olds.
Other benefits of the programme are:
- Improves the sports offer and widens the breadth of provision in school
- Creates a mechanism to support transition into club and community sport
- Motivate’s young people to develop leadership skills
- Equips young people with the ability and desire to continue their involvement in sporting activity
We run training sessions across the county for schools involved with the programme, allowing teachers to understand how to make the most out of the programme and start the planning process. The resource park showcases how a range of activities can be easily integrated into a school setting utilising existing facilities.
