Top tips for Sports Day

Summer is well on the way which means more than just days and days of delightful free time for children; it means Sports Day. Despise it or adore it, it's on the horizon so we’ve put together these top tips to help your children victoriously to the finish line.

Don’t forget their kit!

It seems obvious, but there will be at least one kid who will have to wear lost property, let’s make sure it’s not yours! Remember our online shop allows you to order 24 hours day. So, if you want to order some new kit to make sure they look and feel the part, we’re here to help.

STRETCH

You may think of stretching as something performed only by runners or gymnasts. But we all need to stretch in order to protect ourselves from injury. It doesn't take long, get them to: roll their shoulders, swing their arms, touch their toes and reach for the sky.

SUN PROTECTION

Make sure they are wearing a high SPF and ideally apply this before they are exposed to the great outdoors! Wearing a hat in-between waiting for races can help with protection too. We offer our legionnaires cap which gives optimum coverage.

Have fun

It’s the biggest cliché in the book, but really it is the taking part that counts. It must be really, because the odds of winning anything at a school sports day are stacked against most kids. Make sure your child knows that you are proud of them for being brave enough to compete in the first place.
