SPAR Lancashire School Games 2023

The SPAR School Games 2023 will be on the 4th July 2023 at Stanley Park in Blackpool. We are very grateful for SPAR to be sponsoring this event again for the 17th year! 

Get involved and stay active

Throughout 2020, young people and families showed the importance of staying home and having fun by taking part in the Stay at Home Lancashire School Games - just because we don't have to stay at home this year, there are some great ideas for activities you can try at home, just for fun, or to enjoy a bit of friendly competition with family and friends. Have a look at some of these Learn and Challenges for year 1-2 or Learn and Challenges 3-6, there is also a playlist for workouts for teenagers.

Different times, same goals

After an incredible return to live events in 2022, we are very much looking forward to hosting The Games on Tuesday 4th July 2023. The Games ensure that physical activity and competition are available to support young peoples’ wider development, including their ability to re-socialise and improve their physical and mental well-being.

The School Games are designed to be age appropriate and you will find a selection of activities along with a mix of competitions and challenges. Once again, pupils will be able to have fun, compete, push themselves, show grit and determination and challenge each other. All activities should be undertaken with the six School Games values in mind.
