Fancy yourself as the next Wayne Rooney, Kelly Holmes or
Tony Hawk? Well now's your chance to prove it! This part of your
DofE programme is all about getting active. Whether you're into
sports, dance or general fitness it doesn't matter - you can choose
to do something you're interested in.
You don't need to be star athlete or the fittest person in the
world to complete your Physical section. As long as you have fun,
get better and fitter, then you'll have done it! From playing for a
local sports club to weekly dance classes, from free running to
yoga, from ultimate flying disc to wheelchair football, almost any
dance, sport or fitness activity can count. Have a chat with your
Leader to see what's around locally.
Once you've decided what you want to do, you need to find
an adult who needs to know what you're aiming to achieve, can help
you through your section and sign your Record Book at the end of it
to prove you did it. This is your Assessor and, for your Physical
section, this is likely to be the person who's running the activity
you do, for example your sports coach, dance teacher or gym
instructor. If you choose to do an activity on your own, why not
ask your Leader to be your Assessor?
With the help of your Assessor, agree a time frame and set
yourself some goals to aim for - just make sure they're going to
challenge you. You could choose to aim for a standard or award set
by the sport or activity's governing body. Then check your choice
and goals with your Leader, get their approval and agree when to
catch up with them whilst you're doing your activity. As soon as
this is done, it's time to get active!
