How It Works
We are GoFit4Fun and we are excited to test our new programme in Sheffield!!! With us you are going to be able to imagine your game, create it, play it, and be active. For us, the best way to be active and have fun is not always through playing structured sports, but games! There are loads of games that already exist but why not create the ones of your dreams?
We want you to meet other people
We want you to make new friends
We want you to use your imagination
We want you to make your imagination go wild
We want you to create your own ideas
We want you to present your ideas
We want you to have fun !
The GoFit4Fun Ecosystem
A club. It is a weekly post-curricular session during which attendees co-create games to promote physical activity. It is not necessarily about creating ball based games! Children are in charge of deciding what they want to play and it is an opportunity for them to co-create the game of their choice! The sessions take place in the school, and lasts about an hour and half.

Safeguarding and child protection statement
We at GoFit4Fun have a clear set of guidelines about how we keep children safe and respond to child protection concerns. Here is a link (LINK COMING SOON) to a more detailed set of policies and procedures which explain the steps we take within our organisation to keep children safe. All members of the Gofit4Fun team are DBS checked and are in compliance with all statutory regulations.
Credentials / Experience
We have an extended network due to the considerable experience of promoting physical activity in the Sheffield City Region. The tight link we have with Sheffield Hallam University and more especially among Sheffield volunteering and the Physical Activity Sports and Health department allows us to identify students and volunteers to recruit to deliver our programme.
