Spirit of the Games

spiritThese are the six values that form the ‘Spirit of the Games’, part of the wider Sporting Spirit programme. Competition creates the ideal context in which to explore personal values and conduct, as through it young people can learn how to handle victory and defeat, how to believe in their abilities and achieve their personal best, how to respect their opponents and work with their team-mates to achieve success. The way in which schools communicate these values and involve young people in championing this cause will help bring the Spirit of the Games to life. This will ensure that competitive school sport is a rich learning experience for your young people, an experience which develops them to be not only the best sportsperson they can be but the best person as well.

At each primary school competition run by the NWLSSP a Spirit of the Games Award is given to the team or school that best demonstrates the School Games Values.

In 2017/18 Thringstone and Ashby Willesley won the most awards, both winning it on 6 occasions.

The current standings for 2018/19 are below.
