We hope to build on the enthusiasm for sport that the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games created and use the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 to inspire children to make sport a lifestyle choice. The Archie‟s Activity Afternoon event this year is called: “Archie‟s Commonwealth Adventure”. At this event children will be able to take part in adapted activities of the sports played at the Commonwealth Games including athletics, basketball, lawn balls, hockey, netball, shooting, rugby and tennis. In this pack is a list of the sports that the activities are based on. It has information on the sports and local club links in Sheffield if the children want to play more of the sport after the event. As well as interesting facts on each sport, there are some fun quizzes and games to play with the children before and after the event. The Arches SSP hope that by exposing children to positive early experiences of sport and physical activity, they will make sport a lifestyle choice and live a healthy active life.
