YST Conference

YST 2020 Conference
The YST 2020 Conference took place on Thursday 27 February at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, with the theme of 'Getting to the Heart of a Well School'. Details of the 2021 Conference will be announced in due course.

The Youth Sport Trust 25th Anniversary Conference and Awards Dinner focused on human skills in the digital age, and what it means to be a Well School. We explored the power of physical education, sport and play to build connections and strengthen communities within and beyond the school gates while giving young people a better sense of belonging.

At a time when communities have become more divided, the power of sport and play to bridge those divides could not be more important. The conference built on the focus of previous YST annual conferences on emotional wellbeing, physical wellbeing and cognitive wellbeing to explore the importance of social wellbeing in an attempt to fully create ‘The Well School’.
