The playmaker award
A PlayMaker Award is Leadership program endorsed by Sports Leaders UK designed for primary school children 9+ years old.
The award aims to help learners develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to build confidence and self-esteem as they take on the responsibility of assisting in leading their peers and younger children.
By the end of the course, the pupils will have developed the required skills to set up simple games and/or activities and gain increased confidence when assisting in leading small groups of peers or younger children under direct supervision.
The Playmaker award provides training and support to link in to a sustainable lunch time and breaktime activities program which can benefit a whole school approach to an active, safe and engaging lunchtime.
