Inspire, Believe. Achieve
Covid-19! What a mess it has caused! With the recent lockdown for UK schools nationwide, and limited access to sports for all students; Athletes In Schools have decided to take our services online!
We are now Virtual!
What does this mean? Well, it means that we can still inspire students; however instead of our Team GB athletes visiting schools, the athletes can now inspire students via Zoom. And whats more, parents and teachers can also get involved.
The concept is the same. The Team GB athlete you select for the visit will deliver a virtual assembly style presentation. This will last up to 1 hour and include a question & answer session with students.
By going online students have a chance to research the Team GB athlete before-hard and prepare relevant questions.
Once the presentation is over students will be invited to a virtual PE lesson with the athlete.
This is a fun, enjoyable, and challenging bootcamp style workout that will incorporate activities from the athletes chosen sport.
Our virtual mission is simple! Inspire the next generation of champions by introducing them the high achieving Olympic, Paralympic, and Team GB role models from the comfort of their homes.
