Children generally have to go to school and schools have to teach sport and physical education; therefore, there is a golden opportunity to serve schools and impact children in a place where they go to daily.
Opportunities for sports ministry in schools are:
Teaching Physical Education lessons
Teaching Religious Education lessons
Coaching teams and establishing extra-curricular sports clubs
Taking whole school and/or year-group assemblies
Staging themed ‘project days’ linked to topics such as Mental Health or major sports events such as the Soccer World Cup.
We have significant experience in this type of ministry.

What do schools say about us?
"GET Sported supports our school in a number of ways: PPA cover, after-school clubs, lunchtime clubs and enrichment. All the coachesare excellent and have developed positive relationships with staff and pupils. One of the main reasons for us choosing GET Sported is their values, as they link closely with our school values, ethos and vision statement. Each session they run not only develops the children's sporting skills but also develops their character through Christian values. The children at St Philip's really enjoy their GET Sported sessions and many sign up to attend the after-school sessions as well."
- MrsCoppens, Deputy Head Teacher, St Philip's School
"The coaches are excellent and have a great rapport with the pupils, they set good expectations of behaviour which makes their sessions enjoyable for all. Consequently our pupils love their weekly sessions and the clubs are the highlight of the week."
- Kathryn Morrell, Head of Monkton Pre Prep, May 2015
