Hit the Ground Running

September – November

The West Yorkshire School Games has teamed up with Totally Runable to give children a county-wide competitive challenge that can be done at any time in school, any place, and without any equipment!

Hit the Ground Running will begin on Monday 27 September and will run throughout the autumn term until Christmas. It’s open to all primary school children.

Your school can register to take part at any point. during the challenge.

Simply follow the steps below for your schools to take part.

  • Sign up your class.
  • Log the miles your bubble completes (in total) each week on a Google Form.
  • Track your progress online. We will post weekly leaderboards on this page. This will be calculated by using the average mileage per child in your bubble.
  • Take part in weekly mini-challenges to win prizes. These will include photo competitions, cross-curricular activities, and timed challenges.

If you have any questions about the challenge, please contact emma.binnersley@yorkshiresport.org.

This Girl Can Week

Monday 11 October – Friday 15 October

We are excited to introduce a This Girl Can activity to the West Yorkshire School Games programme!

The week will be the start of a number of events the School Games team will be running throughout the year specifically designed for KS3 and KS4 (year 7-11) girls.

Registered schools will have access to a number of videos that have been specifically designed for secondary aged girls. These videos will range from well-being tutorials to more high-energy workouts. You are welcome to use the content in whichever way suits your school and young people. That may be in a designated PE lesson during the week, for the girls to take part in their own time, or both.

Sign up your school and you will receive the virtual content ahead of the week.

Your local School Games Organiser may also be running some girls only events in your area. Please use their contact details to get in touch and find out more.
