Change4Life Primary Sports Clubs

Change4Life Primary Sports Clubs

Primary sports clubs have been created to increase physical activity levels in less active seven- to nine-year-olds, through multi-sport themes.

The clubs strive to create an exciting and inspirational environment for children to engage in school sport. Over time the clubs will ensure that they take part in lifelong sport and physical activity, reducing the risk of chronic disease in later life.

Benefits of a Change4Life Club for a school

Change4Life Sports Clubs are proving to have a significant impact on many whole school priorities such as behaviour, attendance and attainment. They also provide schools with a vehicle for developing a sense of belonging, confidence and competence in young people. This can translate to other aspects of school life and priorities, such as special educational needs and the Pupil Premium.

What is involved?

5 multi skill themes that take their influence from a range of sports:

Adventure: canoeing, cycling, orienteering, rowing, sailing.

Combat: boxing, fencing, judo, taekwondo, wrestling.

Creative: cheerleading, diving, gymnastics, jump rope, swimming.

Flight: cricket, handball, rounders, softball, ultimate frisbee, volleyball.

Target: archery, boccia, bowls, goalball, golf, fencing.

How can I launch a club in my school?

Northamptonshire Sport are providing every primary school funding to receive their own resources, training and support to run their very own Change4Life Sports Club.
