On this special day we invite everyone to dress as their favourite sporting hero or sport and join us in encouraging young people to get their 60 minutes a day of PE, sport and play It can be as simple or elaborate as you like – Sports Star Friday is an opportunity to have fun, share your passion for sport and raise funds to support young people’s well being.

You could wear your karate kit, dance gear, cricket whites or your favourite teams strip? Maybe accessorise your outfit with goggles, shin pads, sweat bands or other sports equipment?
