The Irish Tug of War Association is delighted to be partnering with the Active School Flag (ASF) initiative. This great initiative promotes physical activity and awareness in schools around the country, introducing the children to different sports and increasing the activity levels of children. We think Tug of War is an ideal sport to partner with this initiative. It is a sport where team work is far more important than any one individual. It is a sport that is easy to pick up and do, with very little equipment. It can be done indoors with standard trainers or outdoors on the grass with trainers or football boots. This simplicity makes it very easy for schools to either run a competition during a PE class or incorporate tug of war as an exercise as part of a class or training session.

Cathy and Annette visited the school on Thursday 3rd of May. She worked with 3rd and 5th class for a session each.
