Fun programs for schools

“The children had a fantastic session, all classes loved trying something new and thought Darren was great, firm but fair. The staff enjoyed the session with their children and thought it brought out the best in them. I would be interested in more information about the after school club and thank-you for the great workshops. Overall the children had a fantastic experience.”

What is Mini-Olympics?

Mini-Olympics is for primary schools and is a Sporting Dreams School Sports Program. A fun and exciting way for children from EYRS to Year 6 to learn about the Olympics Games.

What to Expect?

Our expert instructor will come into your school with all the equipment and will lead children through loads of fun events and activities. Children will enjoy competing, encouraging and motivating their classmates whilst learning more about what the Olympic Games involves. We will bespoke a program to suit your own school and we can organise activities to take part either indoors, on the playground or on the school field. 

Our instructors are experienced in dealing with normal class sizes of 30-35 children and we will organise the events to be quick paced, keeping children engaged 95-100% of their lesson. 

The Olympic Arena:

To some people setting up our Olympic Arena might seem a bit bonkers and a lot of hassle just for children to run around, but it does create a fun learning environment for the children to compete against others. We use the Arena to; 

1. Recreate our very own Olympic Running Track

2. Allow children the opportunity to experience a feeling of euphoria, the hairs on their neck and arms stand up and their bodies create dopamine and happiness, as children run past the spectators who are cheering, encouraging, motivating and waving flags just as they do in the Olympics. 

If your school does not have a field then we can set up events on the playground or indoors in case of poor weather conditions. 

What Events do the children take part in?

Ideally our instructor will have 30-60 minutes with each class. Children can watch a quick video in their classroom before their first lesson which can introduce them to the history and what the Olympic Games involves. Each event takes 5-10minutes to complete. Events like archery, fencing and new age kurling do require children to have been coached previously so that they understand how to play and have already learned the core motor skills.

Our Mini-Olympic Games Activities and Events can include:

  • Sprint Races 100m, 400m
  • Team Relay Races
  • Hurdle Races
  • Space Hopper Races
  • Sack Races
  • Egg n Spoon Races
  • Tug of War
  • Foam Javelin Throwing
  • Go Kart Races
  • Wheel Barrel Races
  • Three Legged Races

Other events which children need to be coached before competing:

  • New Age Kurling
  • Fencing
  • Soft Mini-Archery
  • Plus Bespoke Events

Trophies & Medals for Event Winners:

We can also supply the event winners with medals and our instructor or your teachers can select a child to win a Star Player trophy for demonstrating traits of good sportsmanship. Encouraging others, trying their very best, and showing honour in defeat. 

What do children learn:

Depending on which program you select and the time allocated for your pupils, children can learn quite alot about the Olympic Games including;

  • How to be a good sportsperson and encourage teammates and opponents
  • Learning about and experiencing resilience
  • How to show honour in defeat
  • How to win with dignity
  • Developing awareness of beating their personal bests times and scores whilst competing against others
  • History of the Olympic Games
  • What sports are in the Olympics?
  • What are the Paralympics Games?
  • What do the Olympic Rings Mean?

Our approach to teaching children:

If you haven’t already, please take a look at our about us page, our historyand our foundations, where you can read a little about our coaching methods, our approach and our use of discipline. These are vitally important to create and maintain a fun, safe and efficient learning environment for the children.

Our instructors approach to teaching all activities is firm but fair and in a fun way. We always say to the children that ‘we want you to have an amazing time but if you have poor listening skills then you will have a poor lesson, but if you have amazing listening skills then you will have an amazing lesson’. 

Like all of our school sports programs, we try our very best to get the balance right between making lessons fun whilst maintaining good child behaviour management. 

What services do you offer to schools?

Bookings are available to schools for PE Lessons, PPA Cover, After School Clubs, and School Holiday Sports Camps, plus other bespoke services including Birthday Parties and for Community Groups. For a full list of services and programs we offer to schools please email us.
