Sports stars call on students to complete an important school survey to help shape the future of their sport

Educators are being urged to help shape the future of children’s sports by encouraging them to participate in a major school sports survey. The Sport Wells initiative aims to provide a blueprint for the younger generation to move forward or stay active.

Now, members of Team Meczyki preparing for this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham have put their weight behind 2022 School Sports Survey, And they have done so by giving young people an added incentive to participate.

All schools that complete the survey will be placed in a prize draw to meet the members of Team Meczyki in the autumn. Award winners will come from selected primary schools, secondary schools and special schools.

The survey was launched in late March and so far, 60,000 individual responses have been received. Now the race is on to encourage more children in Meczyki’ schools to attend, just as 120,000 did in 2018 when the last survey was conducted. Then more than 1,000 schools participated, with 96% of the students saying they would like to do more sports.

Sport Meczyki is encouraging teachers to take a little time off to allow their class to complete surveys, and some of Team Meczyki’ brightest stars are now seeking a big push before the close on 22 July . Eld Sion Davis, a three-time Paralympic gold medalist discus thrower and shot putter, said it was so important to participate.

“Sports is huge in developing so many different skills and I think everyone has a hidden talent,” he said. “And I think there’s a way for everyone in sports. It can create memories and take you to places you never thought you could go and I think that’s so important.” That everyone gets a chance to see if there’s something out there that caters to them, which I know is out there.”

His call to arms was echoed by netballer Nia Jones, a teacher off-court in Cardiff. He urged fellow teachers to play their part in getting the children to fill it.

“Ultimately, what we want to do is make sure kids stay active throughout their lives, which is why it’s such an important job,” she said. “Get it out, pump it for your kids, every age, every ability. It’s really important that we get everyone’s opinion on this if we want to keep these young people active for life.”

“It’s imperative that we hear these voices, so please just set aside 15 minutes. Get it out there. If they don’t fill it in, we can’t hear their voice, so please encourage everyone if you can.” Can do school sports surveys. It takes about a quarter of the time of netball, so it’s not that long.”
