People of Fingal challenged
to take part in BeActive Day 2020
Fingal is challenged to be active on Sunday, 28th June as part of the Sport Ireland National BeActive Day.
Fingal Sports Office is one of 29 Local Sports Partnerships in the country who are coming together to celebrate a day of physical activity and sport and want you to join in and be active.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Fingal Sports Office has been working hard to ensure the people of Fingal remain physically active.
As part of a national network of 29 Local Sports Partnerships (LSP) Fingal Sports Office has adapted by using online resources, printed booklets and other innovative means, to ensure that everyone in their community has the opportunity to share in the enjoyment as well as the mental and physical health benefits of sport and physical activity.
International guidelines recommend children are active for at least 60 minutes a day and adults for 30 minutes a day, National BeActive Day is a fun and inclusive way of getting in your daily physical activity.
Marion Brown, Principal Sports Officer, states that “National BeActive Day is an opportunity to get everyone in the household up and active. You can do it just for fun or add a competitive element by keeping scores or splitting in to teams. No matter what you do, we encourage you to be active and have some fun, and let’s make Fingal the most active county this weekend!.”
We would be delighted if you could get the word out there to your pupils and their families.
The Local Sports Partnerships have developed a printable list of games and activities to give you some inspiration, all of which are fully adaptive for people of all abilities and skill levels. With suggestions to make the games harder or easier, there is a game for everyone. They can simply print out the games or display them on your phone and be active. Or they can get creative and create your own games, activities or challenges?
Fingal Sports Office is running a competition for the most creative National BeActive Day activity in the county so make sure to share a photo or video on social media and tag in @SportIreland and #fingalsportsoffice and the hashtag #NationalBeActiveDay to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
If you are not on social media, you can email a photo or video of your activity to firstname.lastname@example.org to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
