Youth Sports Trust
The YST will launch a free “After School Sport Club” this week following the ban on children’s sport outside school in the second lockdown. Similar to Joe Wicks “PE With Joe” during the first lockdown, the 30min club will take place 5.00pm each weekday and led by a member of the YST athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday with Jenna Downing, the world no.1 inline skater and 10 time British champion.
Aimed mainly at primary aged children working with the sport sector and national network of partners to develop the sessions to keep our young people active when it was reported that during the first national lockdown almost half of young people became less active, becoming physically unfit and struggling with mental health.
The After School Club will run for 5 weeks until December 18 and children can take part live by visiting the YST YouTube channel, you-tube.com/user/YouthSportTrust.
