“Playwaze Challenges will enable us to grow our virtual challenge offer, and grow our relationships with parents and families taking part in the challenges”.

What made you decide to take up Playwaze Challenges?

We wanted a professional and user-friendly system to provide us with a suitable platform to continue to provide physical activity events and challenges for our schools to take part in.

How have Playwaze Challenges supported you in delivering wider priorities?

It’s supported us to provide an ‘adapted affiliation offer’ for our schools during Covid but hopefully, longer-term, it will enable us to grow our virtual challenge offer. 

What do you see as the greatest benefit to yourselves, your networks, your schools, and your young people in using Playwaze Challenges?

We hope that as schools begin to get familiar with Playwaze Challenges, we will grow the uptake of our challenges. We also see this as a tool to grow our relationships with parents and families taking part in the challenges. 

What are your organisations long-term ambitions with Playwaze Challenges?

I’d like to think that schools will engage with the virtual challenges and that it will become a longer-term offer, rather than just during the current covid challenges. It has the potential to work really well alongside our face to face events and delivery.
