#BeActive & Flatten the Curve

As the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak continues, our aim in Waterford Sports Partnership is to continue supporting responsible sport and physical activity participation while minimising the spread of COVID-19 to flatten the infection curve.

Sport and physical activity is essential to our physical and mental wellbeing, our sense of positivity and our long term health, now more than ever!

Outdoors / physical activity

There are endless opportunities for physical activity. Even if children are playing on their own or in very small groups, there are many fun ways of keeping active:

  • Hopscotch
  • Skipping
  • Hula-hoops
  • Obstacle courses
  • Treasure hunts

Local GAA clubs and county teams have been posting videos on their social media outlets with some of their star players demonstrating drills that children can follow.

Nature walks

This is one for parents and children. It is so important to remember to get active and get outdoors to open spaces.

Incorporate science, geography, oral language, drama and music into a walk whether it’s in a nearby park, along a beach or in the countryside.
