The Youth Sport Award 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.
It 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. It aims to build positive lifestyle habits and behaviours to feel empowered to take ownership for 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.
