IAPS Sport has partnered with bsporty to launch a monthly online sports magazine for children aged 7-14 years.
The magazine is a safe website for children to browse freely where all of the content and videos have been obtained with the express permission of the Sports’ Governing Bodies.
Every month, the bsporty magazine features:
- a number of different sports with inspiring up to date content
- videos of skills
- direct links for readers to try the sport for themselves or to take the sport to the next level.
- There are also articles on interesting topics for this age group such as sports kit made from recycled plastic or new and innovative sports equipment, a hotel where you can sleep at altitude or activity camps, holidays and healthy eating plus sports psychology.
April’s edition was a free version – click here to read!
Through IAPS’s new partnership with bsporty, children who sign up and attend an IAPS school will not only have access to the monthly bsporty articles, but they will also have access to an exclusive IAPS section.
The IAPS section will include:
- reports from events; including a list of all the event results
- updates on how to get involved in the programme
- articles from former pupils who have gone onto achieve in their sport
- reports from schools about their experiences at events
- announcements about exciting new developments; including the winner of the mascot competition, which has been designed by an IAPS pupil
- Polls for children to take part in. After all, we want to organise events that children want!
The magazine is a safe website for children to browse freely where all of the content and videos have been obtained with the express permission of the Sports’ Governing Bodies. There is no blogging facility and no capacity for children to talk to one another. The magazine helps children to enjoy reading whilst providing knowledge about the world of sport around them, advice as to how to deal with challenges and ultimately encourages them to get outside and be active.
Whilst sport is still heavily restricted in the UK, we felt this was a perfect time to launch our partnership with bsporty and for children to be inspired to try new activities when they safely can.
We hope that your school and your children will #binspired after reading the new IAPS Sport magazine!

Would your school like to write an article for the magazine?
We will be writing new content monthly. The magazine launches on the 1st of every month. If you school would like to feature in the magazine you could:
- Write an article about your experience of attending an IAPS event
- Send us photos and videos of your experiences at IAPS events
- Do you have former pupils that have gone onto achieve great things in their sport? Would they like to write an article to inspire the next generation?
- Write an article about any interesting sports news from your school; charity runs, challenges, etc.
We would like to include as many articles as possible each month but please remember the audience when writing articles – the magazine is aimed at children between 7-14 year olds and what they would be interested in reading. This isn’t a hard sell of your PE department to prospective parents. But an inspiring article to encourage children to get involved in sport and activity.
