                What is it and what do Inspire Together offer?

We offer 4 strands of events for children of all abilities in Leicester schools:

Many of these feed into the National School Games Programme or the local Team Leicestershire Competition Programme.

Team Leicestershire

‘Team Leicestershire’ is the umbrella Association for all traditional competitive school sport in secondary schools across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.

The aim of the programme is to raise the profile of competitive school sport and ensure that as many young people as possible are able to represent their school and compete in a variety of sports / competitions, both at a local level against neighbouring schools, but then with the opportunity to progress through to county finals.

The programme aims to re-ignite, support and profile our County Representative Sides, so that our most talented young people have the opportunity to represent their County with pride on a regional and national stage.

School Games Programme

The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. The School Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, and at a county/area level:

Intra-school (Level 1)

For many young people sporting competition is first experienced through intra-house teams, form groups or in PE lessons. This level of competition will build on a school’s existing work to offer pupils a year-round programme of regular intra-school competition in a number of sports that culminate in a School Games Day.

Inter-school (Level 2)

Inter-school competition is for years 3 to 13. At this stage individuals and teams will be selected to represent their school at inter-school competitions, many of which will be leagues. Schools will have the flexibility to decide which sports to enter but are encouraged to involve as many pupils as possible by creating breadth in the sports they offer and depth through the creation of additional teams.

School Games Festival (Level 3)

Each county will host a multi-sport showcase event as a culmination of the year-round inter-school competition. Teams and individuals competing at inter-school level will win the opportunity to compete in this event. Pupils succeeding at this level will be encouraged to develop their enjoyment and talent in sport through existing National Governing Bodies’ club and talent pathways.

National Finals (Level 4)

This is a national multi-sport event, in which the country’s most talented athletes of school age compete if selected by a National Governing Body. This event will take place in high quality venues amongst a unique and vibrant atmosphere and supports athletes’ development; acting as a stepping stone to further national and international competition

Why is competition important?

Through our different strands of delivery, we hope to target pupils of all abilities whether it be at an Inspire, Develop or Excel event and give them the opportunity to thrive and develop their character values and life skills ready for the future.
