Fit2Go Games 2021

Fit2Go is our health and well-being programme which is delivered in every primary school in Blackpool. During the six-week course Year 4 pupils are taught how to improve or maintain their day-to-day habits, through both physical activities and classroom-based learning, to encourage a healthy lifestyle now and in the future.

Each year after the children have completed Fit2Go we celebrate their achievements by inviting pupils from participating schools to the home of Blackpool FC, Bloomfield Road, where they take part in a variety of activities such as handball, circuit training and football.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, 2021’s Fit2Go Festival was replaced by a brand-new virtual format in Fit2Go Games. Rather than hosting at the stadium, classes took part in a range of virtual challenges over four weeks, these ranged from running the length of Bloomfield Road to designing a feature of our new workbook. The Games finished with an online workout that was attended by 430 primary aged children across Blackpool.

Schools were tasked to complete weekly challenges to win their classes points, over four weeks the points were tallied up to decide who will be the first-ever Fit2Go Games Champions.

All schools scores have now been added up and we’re pleased to announce our Top 3 classes are as follows:

1st Place: Marton 4B

2nd Place: St John’s Y4

3rd Place: Stanley 4A

Last Friday Marton 4B were presented with their Fit2Go Games Trophy, after a fantastic effort with their challenge submissions. Class teacher, Mr Haigh, was thrilled after seeing how hard his class had worked and how much enthusiasm they showed throughout the programme. Not only did they score top points from their challenge submissions, but the class also pushed themselves to score bonus points by uploading their attempts to social media and going above and beyond in their efforts.

Lucy CC, Health and Well-Being OfficerBlackpool FC Community Trust said, “It was great to see so many children across Blackpool take part in the Fit2Go Games. We were overwhelmed with the effort and enthusiasm shown from the entries received. We’re looking forward to seeing what next year brings, hopefully, we’ll be back at Bloomfield Road to celebrate together.”

Well done to all the Year 4 pupils who took part, it was great to see all the entries to the challenges and we are so pleased the children could get involved and enjoy themselves in such challenging times.

FYI: We still have limited places available on our Football Camps over summer. BOOK HERE
