Herefordshire Virtual School Games

Due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19, earlier this year we had to take the unfortunate decision of cancelling the Herefordshire Summer School Games events. However, we didn't want pupils to miss out!

The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. To celebrate the Summer Games, Active Herefordshire & Worcestershire and Stride Active have teamed up once again to host a week-long festival of challenges. The activities will be aimed towards pupils both at school and at home.

Alongside a week-long dance challenge, we will be bringing you a new sporting challenge every day. All winners will be announced at the end of each day (around 5 pm). As usual, the efforts of every pupil will be recognised and participants will be awarded with an e-certificate.

We look forward to seeing you take part in the challenges. Stay safe and good luck!

Teachers will select one routine to submit to Stride Active. Please confirm that you have obtained consent to share the video with us and your routine is emailed to us by 5pm on Thursday 2nd July.
