Virtual Competitions


Whilst the country is under restrictions, young people are missing out on lots of the PE and sport activities that they would normally enjoy. To help address this we are running a series of COVID safe virtual competitions for schools to take part in.

Spring Term 1

For the first half of the Spring term we are running two separate competitions with activities designed specifically for pupils in Primary, Secondary and Special schools.

  1. Personal Best Challenges – A series of activities to encourage all pupils to achieve their personal best score. Challenges will be based around a variety of different physical and skill-based challenges.
  2. Virtual Panathlon –  Virtual sports competition for pupils with a Special Educational Need of Disability (SEND) in special schools or mainstream schools. Includes “Pre-Season” practice lessons, plus a “Game Day” competition where pupils put their skills into action.

For each competition there is a resource card which explains the competition, a video to demonstrate how to complete the competitions, plus an online entry form.

All competitions will open on Monday 4th January and entries will close on Friday 12th February.

School Games Values

Pupils should be encourages to demonstrate the following School Games values whilst taking part in the virtual competitions;

  • Determination – Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working everyday to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
  • Passion – Giving it 100 percent. Putting your heart and soul into the game and never giving up. Passion makes you enter the race and passion makes you finish it.
  • Respect – Respect for the referee, for the opposition, for your team mates, for yourself and for the game. Accepting victory and defeat with grace, treating others politely and with understanding. Respect everyday, for every sport and everyone. 
  • Honesty – Honesty with others and with yourself. Having the courage to do the right thing and what you know is right. Let the best person win, not the best cheat.
  • Self Belief – You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
  • Teamwork – Treating everybody equally, supporting each other and working together to achieve at your very best level. Celebrate each others successes and be a positive team player.
