Have Double Olympian and Commonwealth Champion, Natalie Powell visit your school!

Sports for Schools recently welcomed the Welsh judoka to their Sports for Schools Team for 2023.

Sports for Schools is a social enterprise with a mission to help children to be more physically active. Over the past couple of decades, scientists have explained and confirmed how physical activity improves many aspects of a child’s life, including their academic performance and general wellbeing. Sports for Schools events also help schools raise money for resources that promote physical activity.

They achieve their mission by bringing top athletes, World champions, Olympians and Paralympians, into primary schools all over the UK to run inspiring events. They work with over 50 brilliant athletes from a range of disciplines and sports, each one with a unique story to tell about overcoming challenges and the importance of following your dreams.

The athletes are fantastic role models who show the children the power of hard work and perseverance. The events create memories which last a lifetime and show the children the value of grit and determination.

Natalie said, “I am really excited to deliver the sessions for Sport for Schools. Inspiring children to get active and live purposeful, fulfilling lives is something I am really passionate about. I think judo teaches a way of life which everyone can benefit from and would love more children to share that positive experience.”
