About Playwaze For Schools

Playwaze for Schools was born out of a partnership with the Youth Sport Trust
Together, we believe that every child and young person should be able to find their way to play by discovering sport and activity that’s right for them – whoever they are, wherever they are, and whatever their abilities and interests.

Schools can act as a hub for local activities – parents and young people can use the school’s website to find ways to get active and places to play near them.

Parents and families can easily discover things to do near them; after school, at weekends, and during school holidays, to support their children in leading happy and healthy lives.

Providers of sport and physical activity can increase their reach and make their activities more accessible to young people and their families.

Playwaze for Schools is like booking.com for local sport and activity
Schools connect by embedding a simple search widget on their website

We work closely with OpenActive to further the development of open data
Open Active is a community-led initiative for the sport and physical activity sector that facilitates the use of open data. Open data means that information about where, when and what activities take place is more accessible. Playwaze for Schools uses the power of open data to make it easier for children and young people to find and access sport in their local area.

We help our partners to increase participation among children and young people

We've partnered with all kinds of different organisations, from national governing bodies and active partnerships to activity providers and campaigns to increase participation and awareness by making sport and physical activity easier to access for children and young people.
