The 2013 Mini Olympics programme takes place in Primary Schools across the District. Classroom based lessons explore issues of cultural diversity and integration, equality, sports participation and healthy living. Each participating school also receives free sports coaching sessions over a period of eight weeks through a University student placement scheme.
Each participating class has been assigned a country that they have to learn about and represent at a Mini Olympics Festival taking place in May at the University of Chichester. The Festival will feature an opening ceremony, a number of different sports activities, and the presentation of awards for effort, attitude, and sportsmanship.
Young sports stars from some of the Districts local Primary Schools took part in the Chichester District Mini Olympic Festivals on Tuesday 30 April and Thursday 2 May 2013. The Festivals are a smaller version of the Olympic Games and include football, basketball and athletics track and field events. They were based at the University of Chichester's brand new Sports Dome. The programme was organised by a partnership involving the District Council, the University of Chichester, and Chichester College.
Each participating school received free sports coaching sessions in the lead-up to the Mini Olympics through a University of Chichester student placement scheme. The students supplied by the University were studying for a Community Sports Coaching Degree course and used these placements as a means of gaining experience. The Festivals featured an opening ceremony with pupils reading the Olympic Oath and shaking hands with other competitors in an act of sportsmanship. Pupils then took part in a variety of different sports activities delivered by students from the University of Chichester and Chichester College. The Chichester College students are all currently studying their BTEC Level 3 in Sport. The finale of the sporting events was a class relay which generated so much cheering and encouragement from those watching that it almost raised the roof off the new Dome.
