The ‘Boing’ play-based curriculum

The ‘Boing’ project is a research-led programme designed to support coaches and teachers make physical activity more playful and inclusive.

In collaboration with Sport England and Oxford Brookes University, the project team have developed a series of play-based games for coaches and teachers to utilise.

The innovative online resource offers over 130 games with additional resources to support professional development of practitioners working with young people in sport, education and physical activity settings. 

With support from Sport England and Lottery Funding, this project is currently providing coach and teacher education workshops nationally as part of a 2-year programme to develop knowledge, confidence and expertise in coaches and teachers.

A key aim of the project is to increase the quality and inclusiveness of physical activity interventions in a variety of settings. The research project seeks to ascertain:

  1. The impact of coach/teacher education on the knowledge and confidence of practitioners;
  2. Young people’s experience of the Boing curriculum;
  3. Impact on the national workforce to deliver fully inclusive physical activity interventions.
