Asda Active

Our Asda Active programme has helped thousands of children take part in sport this summer.

We teamed up with hundreds of schools and community groups to organise events – from fun sports days to activities such as obstacle races, football matches, wheelchair basketball and tennis – as part of our campaign to encourage children to establish active routines.

Now that the new school year has started our Community Life Champions will be heading into schools to support with sports sessions to continue helping children to get active.

They’ll be supporting sports days with their local schools and community groups, as well as providing children and their families with some great ideas for fun games they can get involved with at home.

We’d love for you to get active with Asda too, so we’ve uploaded four special activities. Why not download them and have a go yourself?

There’s the warm up breakfast bonanza, energy tag, snack swaps and hydration situation.

Show us how you get on! We’d love to hear what you think of our fun activities – post on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #asdaactive or tweet @AsdaCommunity with your action shots!

The events incorporated a wide variety of different sports with a focus on participation over competition, from more traditional sports day fun and games to taster sessions in activities such as archery, Zumba, tennis and basketball.

Between our summer sporting activities our Community Life champions across the UK have been training on the Sports Leaders UK Day Certificate course.

As well as learning lots of leadership skills, it’s also grown our awareness of what Sports Leaders get up to and how they can support their communities to get more active!

Download the Asda Active activity sheet

We’ve put together an activity sheet with some simple and fun activities that are a brilliant way to keep younger children busy and active at home, without spending a fortune on new equipment!

Your kids won’t even notice they are keeping active, plus the skills they learn across the 10 activities all build key areas of physical literacy such as catching, balancing and jumping.

Download the activity sheet to find great activities like sock targets, balloon keepie uppie, stepping stones and boogie time that kids are sure to love playing with their friends.

If your kids are having an active day remember to:

  • Eat a piece of fruit like an apple or banana if you need a snack
  • Drink plenty of water during the day so you don’t get thirst
  • Have a healthy breakfast to give you fuel for the day

These skills have to be learnt and practised so why not try out an activity on your future sports leaders?
