The SuperSport Let’s Play Programme has been at the forefront for more than 14 years in the drive for a healthier generation of young people. Through Let’s Play, young children from 8 to 14 years have benefited from a variety of sporting activities and programmes in a fun and engaging manner. Besides encouraging an active lifestyle, Let’s Play is also at the forefront of the battle against rising childhood obesity levels; inactivity and the resultant social ills confronting young people in various communities.
These sporting activities and programmes include:
- The Let’s Play Physical Education Challenge in partnership with UNICEF that seeks to re-introduce curriculum-orientated physical education at primary school level, a fundamental step in the systematic development of children. The Physical Education Challenge has reached more than 1.5m children in thousands of schools and communities across the country. The program has recently added a teacher training element which has seen 150 educators trained on new methodologies in the implementation of Physical Education in Primary Schools.
- The Let’s Play Playing Fields Project which gives disadvantaged schools and communities access to sporting facilities through the construction of multi-purpose sports courts and rudimentary playing fields. - 26 multi-purpose sport fields were built to date, with another 4 to be built at beneficiary schools in 2020/21.
- The Let’s Play Rugby Programme that introduces the sport of rugby to non-rugby playing primary schools.
- The provision of sports equipment and kit to participating schools and communities.
