Opportunities to get active
Providing opportunities for children and young people to engage in sport and physical activity continues to be a priority for Active Essex.
In partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, the School Games initiative is part of our core programme to engage children and inspire them to lead active lifestyles. School Games offers a pathway for competition and ‘festival’ opportunities; supporting children and young people in participating in a wide variety of activities at a level that brings both challenge and enjoyment.

The Daily Mile
“The Essex School Games is attracting more young people and providing a safe and inclusive environment for them to succeed and be physically active. Participation in The Daily Mile has seen tremendous growth over the last 16 months and with the updated focus in Satellite Clubs, we continue to ensure we meet the physical and social needs of young people aged 14-19yrs.”Dawn Emberson, Active Essex lead on Children and Young People
