The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday 12 November with world no.1 female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing.
Aimed mainly at primary-aged children/Year 7, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club – Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday. The YST hope that this will provide support, capacity and inspiration to the School Games network and sit alongside the other great work and offers that are available for schools and children and young people to engage in. If you are running your own virtual after school clubs, then please do share your practice via #BackToSchoolGames.
