Physical Recreation

The Physical Recreation Section of the Award encourages you to improve your health and fitness, whatever your starting point.

You could choose to do a team sport, solo sport or any healthy activity. It could be something you already do regularly, have tried before or something completely new to you.

The Physical Recreation section should make you feel healthy and happy, and should help you build valuable team skills, self-esteem and confidence. It’s also great fun!
