How Virtual Athlete Can Help in Schools
Virtual Athlete School Challenges provide excellent opportunities for children of all ages and abilities to participate in a range of sporting events such as swimming, cycling, running and rowing. These are often put together to form a multi-sport event such as a mini-triathlon which can also be completed in teams of friends as well as individual pupils.
All activities take part in the security and familiarity of your school, with Virtual Athlete providing supplementary equipment, refreshments and support staff. Furthermore, each pupil will receive a certificate for participating, with medals for winners and spot prizes for those who show outstanding effort. The need to promote physical activity has never been greater, with rates of childhood obesity growing to an unhealthy and unsustainable level.
Feedback has shown that Virtual Athlete school events increase the likelihood of pupils engaging in physical activity inside and outside school, with teachers reporting improved pupil behaviour and attention in school.
