For your physical activity you need to choose any sport, dance or fitness activity – in short, anything that requires a sustained level of energy and physical activity. For example, playing a sport regularly and showing personal improvement would count. However, learning to be a coach in the same sport would be a Skills section activity, whilst being a volunteer coach counts for the Volunteering section.
Here are some of the great things students have been doing over the past year:
Netball Football Golf Table Tennis
Gymnastics Tennis Racket ball Gaelic Football
Squash Athletics Rugby Badminton
Rowing Archery Horse riding Dancing
Trampolining Boxing Martial Arts Swimming
Fitness - going to the gym and recording what they have done each week
Coach to 5k - use the app to track your progress
ParkRun - Weekly 5k running challenge - make sure you are aiming for 1 hour per week so you may need to add another session in during the week.
Mountain biking / Cycling- using Strava or other app to record the route and time and keeping a log of these. Maximum 1 hour per week or 2 hours per fortnight for this to count.
Yoga - download a free app and do this in the comfort of your own home - keep a log via the app for your evidence.
Joe Wicks (or other) - online video / fitness classes - again keep a log of which ones and record evidence of your doing this.
Skiing - this does need to be weekly or bi-weekly for 2 hours for it to count - but you can use the hours on the ski trip at the end.
In terms of an assessor start with your coach then ask your PE teacher or even your form tutor. Speak to them first about what you plan to do, keep a log of the 1 hour per week you do and take the log and evidence at the end for them to write a report.
Remember 3 months = 13 hours, 6 months = 26 hours, 12 months = 52 hours and 18 months = 78 hours
