Being physically literate* is just as important as being able to read, write and count. We also believe in the principle that children and young people should be able to try different activities and develop at their own pace and on their own terms. Our goal is to get as many as possible to feel motivated and have the opportunity to be active. As many as possible for as long as possible!
Children and young people will get the chance to try new forms of exercise alongside some of our greatest sports stars. At the same time parents and coaches can listen to the latest research into sports for children and young people presented live by leading researchers and experts. In other words it will be fun and educational, both on and off the track!
Date 16th September Time 10.00–16.00 Place Nolia Sports Centre in Umeå
Who can take part? All children and young people are welcome, regardless of whether they are complete beginners or already active in sports. In addition parents, coaches and other interested parties are invited to take part in our ‘Pep Talk’ seminars held throughout the day. Taking part in Change the Game is totally free for everyone.
*Physical literacy: To appreciate and develop a life-long interest in physical activity through motivation, confidence, knowledge, understanding and physical competence.
