Ensuring PE lessons are fun and engaging is a key way of ensuring girls get the most out of sport during school and develop passions that will continue beyond.

To enable teachers to deliver a powerful PE experience, TeamUp in collaboration with the Youth Sports Trust are hosting a Teachers’ Conference for London schools at the KIA Oval on Tuesday, November 27.

The conference will aim to support Secondary PE practitioners to deliver engaging and interactive PE lessons through celebrating and highlighting the wider outcomes that can be achieved through the delivery of team-based sports.

Thanks to funding from Wembley National Stadium Trust, the conference – valued at £400 per person – is being offered free to teachers from London schools.

In addition, each delegate attending the conference will be gifted two tickets for an England v Uganda netball match on Friday, November 30 at the Copper Box Arena in Stratford.

Alongside a workshop delivered by YST on the Power of PE, the TeamUp Teacher’s Conference will include workshops and keynotes from all three sports:

• Cricket – this session will be comprised of games, peer-led discovery and group discussions to demonstrate how cricket can be used as a tool to develop collaborative approaches between students.

• Hockey – this session will look at how hockey can benefit all students in helping them enhance their own verbal and non-verbal communication techniques in a fun, safe and engaging environment.

• Netball – this session will focus on providing innovative ways of engaging girls in netball and the wider sporting offers available within schools, and will demonstrate how teachers and coaches can utilise specialised netball messaging to inspire a life-long habit of physical activity.

TeamUp is a joint initiative launched in 2016 by the England & Wales Cricket Board, England Hockey and England Netball.

Its goal is to maximise the legacy of three consecutive home women’s World Cups between 2017-2019 and ensure that thousands of seven to 13-year-old girls across the country have the chance to play team sports.

The initiative was given a significant boost in May 2017 when Wembley National Stadium Trust committed over £650,000 to extend the initiative within the London boroughs and provide local delivery support for London schools and additional opportunities for girls to participate in sport.

Schools can access this support by registering at www.teamupengland.com and applying for support.
