School Games Active Championships

The School Games Active Championships is a fun, engaging national activity campaign for kids across the UK to get active.

Utilising the cutting edge video-based platform powered by TopYa!, the School Games Active Championships is a new way to engage today’s kids, who are always using digital platforms on mobiles, tablets and computers, and transforming their time spent on-screen into time spent being physically active.


New challenges are available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with. Primary and secondary-aged children can join the School Games Active Championships at any time with free active challenges being set via videos within a designated School Games version of the TopYa! Active app. All they need to do is download the app, register as a player and type in the their school specific invitation code.

Children practice the challenges, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!

The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’. For more safeguarding information please read the statement at the bottom of this page. Video content is suitable for young people of all ages and abilities, with regular submissions from National Governing Bodies of Sport.
