We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in sport and physical activity, how we do that for the coming days, weeks and maybe longer, may need to change. You can help us.
The Guernsey Sports Commission is launching #ChallengeGuernsey . We are challenging Guernsey to find new fun ways to compete and participate whilst sporting fixtures and events may not be taking place.
Our team will be sharing our favourite challenges that can be done in the home or the garden, alone or with those you live with. We will also be encouraging you to share yours with us, the Island and the rest of the world. These ideas will be shared with our schools, businesses and the general public with a view to keeping our community active and healthy.
Our 'Weekly Challenge' give children and young people the opportunity to complete a challenge and get onto our leaderboard. After each week all entries that have made the top 20 will be entered into a draw at the end of lockdown with the chance of winning £250 worth of PE equipment for their school.
While schools remain closed for this half term, the Sports Commission will be providing support in the form of 'PE at Home' videos which all schools will have access to. These short videos focus, initially, on 16 core Fundamental Movement Skills which are inclusive and progressive.

Each week we will set you a new challenge! You go away and practise, enter your score and see if you can get onto the leaderboard.
We will be engaging with local and national sporting personalities and all sections of the community to help in whatever way we can. We will be updating the campaign as we go, but #ChallengeGuernsey is yours, come on Guernsey do your thing!
