UK and Europe in associated events to promote school sports

June 2024 saw the return of National School Sports Week, with 4261 schools (including as far away as the USA and UAE!) taking part in Monster Kickabout sessions and other sporting activities.

NSSW is an associated event of European School Sports Day (ESSD) which takes place on 27 September 2024, click here to find out more.

Throughout the week YST were joined by sporting superstars, Athlete Mentors and Champions, as well as Youth Board members, Young Changemaker Award winners and some fabulous YST team leaders at events in UK schools. As the week was powered by Sport Direct's Monster Kickabout, the highlight for many of the students, was a visit from Marley the Monster who took part in penalty shootouts and offered general encouragement to take part in 60 minutes a day, of PE, sport and play! More news from the week can be found here.

If you are interested in taking part in ESSD or another project with European partners please contact Sarah Newton-Shilliam.
