New challenges website launched for young people to be active at home and in school
Posted: Wed, 01 Jul 2020 17:08
The new SASP challenges website launched on Monday 22nd June 2020. With the circumstances of Covid-19 and many children not currently in school, we wanted to ensure that access to physical activity, challenging yourself and progression is still an opportunity for all. The website is designed to encourage young people to challenge themselves to be more active at school and at home. Children can choose activities and earn points for each challenge culminating in a bronze, silver or gold award for each group of challenges. The challenges are grouped with these themes,
Explore - If you're new to the activity and want to learn the basics
Develop - If you've tried it before and learned the basics
Conquer - If you've mastered the basics and want a greater challenge
We'll be adding more challenges through the school holidays and into the new school year. The challenges currently on the website are centred around gymnastics, fitness, cricket and basketball.
As well as being a source of enjoyment, sport and physical activity has proven benefits for our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Being active at every age increases quality of life and everyone's chances of remaining healthy and independent.
To take part in our challenges with your friends and family or challenge yourself - visit the website www.saspchallenges.co.uk
