School Games Leadership

The School Games offers excellent leadership and volunteering opportunities to both primary and secondary schools. Read on to find out more about what is currently available and how your school can get involved.

We encourage all schools to...

  • Seek opinions and views of young people in the planning of School Games activities by creating a sport specific workforce.
  • Provide opportunities for young people to officiate, coach, and lead activities in addition to participation opportunities. 
  • Consider the wider roles that could be assigned around school sport to ensure that everyone can be involved.
  • Consult the NGB Leadership Pathways booklet which outlines the recommended journey for young leaders.

School Sport Organising Crews and Committees

We encourage all schools to start a School Sport Organising Crew (for primary schools) or Committee (for secondary schools) to help with their intra-school sport provision. A SSOC is a diverse group of young people who join together to lead the planning and delivery of these competitions, thus playing a fundamental role in helping develop the School Games. Your school sport opportunities should be for all pupils in the school and therefore the crew or committee should be fully inclusive – so everyone can take part in an activity they enjoy!

What should an SSOC be responsible for?

The duties of a School Sport Organising Crew or Committee could include...

  • Working with teachers and other pupils to organise intra-school competitions and school sport opportunities.
  • Organising a survey to find out what young people think of sport in their school.
  • Reporting back to fellow students at the end of the year on what improvements have been or are going to be made.

How do I get started?

All schools can easily get a committee or crew started through the tools available on Your School Games website. Simply log in, or register( if you are new to the website), and then access the resources library on your dashboard.

Leadership Academies

The purpose of these academies is to train, support and deploy young people to support local School Games activities. The SGO will offer the opportunity to get involved to schools as they look to develop and maintain their academy. These academies will offer young people the opportunity to develop the skills they would require to coach, officiate, or otherwise volunteer in a larger scale event.
