A message from Baroness Sue Campbell, Chief Executive of the Youth Sport Trust
"The Youth Sport Trust is passionate about helping all young people to achieve their full potential in life and in sport by delivering high quality physical education and sport. For nearly 20 years we have been working hard to engage more young people in sport and help them to enjoy lifelong participation. Change4Life Sports Clubs allow us to offer appealing activities in a young person-centred environment and build a smooth and accessible transition from the PE curriculum into extracurricular activities and community sport. By building a network of modern new School and College sport clubs, inspired by Olympic and Paralympic sports and values, we believe Change4Life Sports Clubs will be the catalyst for more young people to get involved. Sport changes lives, and we are delighted to be involved in this partnership and excited about the transformation these clubs will create."
Why Change4Life Sports Clubs?
Change4Life Sports Clubs have been designed around a clear need to increase physical activity levels in less active children in schools through the development of a new type of sports club.
The aim is to create an exciting and inspirational environment to engage these young people in school sport. Over time, we’ll ensure that less active young people take part in lifelong sport and physical activity.
With so many social, emotional and physical changes taking place at primary age it is important to make physical activity a habit if we are to reduce the current increase in chronic disease in later life.
The guidelines outlined in the Chief Medical Officer’s Report, “Start Active, Stay Active” state:
1. All children and young people should engage in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes and up to several hours every day.
2. Vigorous intensity activities, including those that strengthen muscle and bone, should be incorporated at least three days a week.
3. All children and young people should minimise the amount of time spent being sedentary (sitting) for extended periods.
