Hampshire School Games adapts to COVID-19

Date: 26 June 2020   Author: Energise Me

Sports competitions are on hold. But School Games Organisers (SGOs) from across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are keeping young people active with the #HSGDailyChallenge.

About the #HSGDailyChallenge

#HSGDailyChallenge will involve daily physical activity challenges for primary and secondary school pupils. The School Games Organisers (SGOs) will publish a new challenge every day via social media and email. They are encouraging pupils to record their progress and improvement and compete to achieve their personal best. Outstanding achievements will be rewarded with spot prizes.

As School Games Organisers, we are committed to helping children and young people enjoy sport. Competitions may be on hold, but physical activity is still a vital part of keeping our pupils happy and healthy. It’s a stressful time for everyone right now. We hope the #HSGDailyChallenge will bring a much-needed distraction and opportunity for children to enjoy a sense of achievement.

About School Games Organisers

There are more than 450 (SGOs) across the country who support schools in their local area. They coordinate competitive opportunities for all young people from Key Stage 2-4 and support the development of club opportunities.

There are 15 SGOs in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. They are all working together to get as many pupils as possible to take part in the #HSGDailyChallenge. We’re doing our bit to help them spread the word.


Happy and Healthy Children

SGOs designed the Primary and Secondary Physical Activity Challenges to help local young people stay active. The Chief Medical Officer guidelines state that children should be active for 60 minutes per day to maintain good physical and mental health. These guidelines are more important now than ever.

Join in

Follow the School Games Organisers on social media to join the challenge. Or you can email your local SGO to get involved.
