New show Game Changers kicked off at the weekend, as Sky Sports steps up its drive to get more children involved in sport. The opening show featured a football masterclass by David Beckham at a Sky Sports Living for Sport school, and an inline skating demonstration by Sky Sports Living for Sport athlete mentor Jenna Downing. Broadcast live in front of a studio audience of young people, the show is presented by Olympic Gold medallist Darren Campbell and Di Dougherty, with GB Paralympic wheelchair rugby captain Steve Brown among the show’s reporters. Game Changers will draw on the expertise of many of the 75 athlete mentors who are part of Sky Sports Living for Sport, the free initiative delivered in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust that uses sports skills to inspire young people in a third of all UK secondary schools. As well as live studio skills sessions that get the young audience involved, the sports stars will visit schools and sports clubs. These features will be supported by downloadable Skill Sheets available from the Game Changers website to help kids learn the basics of a new sport. Game Changers continues every Saturday morning at 9am on Sky Sports 1 and Sky1, with repeats throughout the week.
