With COVID-19 forcing us to cancel our ever popular Sportshall Athletics events in the Autumn term AVSSP launched its very first Virtual Competition on 14th September.

Running for two weeks and tasking school staff and AVSSP coaches to deliver four simple athletics based challenges the competition helped bring physical activity to life and instil some competition into school sport once again.

So much so that over 4000 children across Amber Valley got involved, a frankly incredible number we never thought possible! Pupils were scored on Speedbounce, Chest Push, Shuttle Sprint and Track challenges with an average score then allocating to each school for mainstream and SEN/D pupils.

4000 entries meant 4000 certificates, 150 medals, 22 rosettes and countless ‘Spirit of the Games’ awards to help bring the AVSSP competition experience to each school in its own way.

A massive congratulations to every pupil and school who got involved, we can’t wait to see how you do on the next Virtual Competition challenge – Fencing!
