School Games Reframe Competition Toolkit – Approaches to Competition
The Youth Sport Trust would like us to share with you the School Games Reframe Competition Toolkit.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the fact that children are within bubbles in school, now is an ideal time to have a look at the toolkit. You can still deliver sport and competitions within the bubbles if adapted to meet the current guidelines, restrictions and risk assessment.
In 2018 the Youth Sport Trust (YST) commissioned research into the design and delivery of competitive youth sport domestically and globally. The intention was to use the findings to ensure that youth sport in the UK is inclusive, accessible and fun.
Competition can be viewed as positive or negative, depending on how the competition is designed and how the young people taking part perceive these experiences. There is no simple solution to what works best to engage and sustain young people in sport and competition. However, this resource considers alternative ways to deliver competition to engage more young people.
This resource will support practitioners in designing competitions to achieve wider outcomes and considers alternative ways to deliver competition to engage more young people based on the eight themes with the Principles of Competition at the centre. The resource contains animations, case studies and top tips.
