The School Games Active Championships is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to #StayInWorkOut using the video-based platform powered by TopYa! (available FREE from Apple and Google Play stores).

New challenges will be available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with. Primary and secondary-aged children can join the School Games Active Championships at any time with free active challenges being set via videos within a designated School Games version of the TopYa! Active app. All they need to do is download the app, register as a player and type in the their school specific invitation code. This is available from the PE lead at your school. If you are PE lead at a school please contact Liz or Sarah to receive your school specific invitation code.

School prizes and certificates will be awarded for participation, in addition to the national awards and prizes on offer.

Children practice the challenges, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!

The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’. For more safeguarding information please read the statement at the bottom of this page. Video content is suitable for young people of all ages and abilities, with regular submissions from National Governing Bodies of Sport.

What are Skill Paths and Challenges?

Our partners provide us with video content they develop, which we believe spans a range of ability and interest levels, so our content is applicable for all Primary and Secondary ages and abilities. If you would like to partner with us, please email roman.neveykin@youthsporttrust.org

How does Virtual Coaching work?

Once a child practices and then uploads a video of themselves performing a particular challenge in the App they will submit it for approval from our trained team of virtual coaches. Virtual coaches provide upbeat feedback, and also act as a moderator to ensure that all content uploaded to the App is appropriate and does not give away personally identifying information.
