Get Set Network
Get Set goes global is designed to encourage young people in Get Set schools and colleges to explore how sport can bring the world together and to help welcome the athletes, media and spectators of the world to the towns, cities and communities of the UK in 2012.
As part of this, schools are being encouraged to follow the preparations of and learn about at least one other Olympic team and Paralympic team in the lead-up to the Games, along with Team GB and ParalympicsGB. Schools and colleges can celebrate their chosen teams on London 2012 World Sport Day, Monday 25th June.
As an additional incentive, primary and secondary schools that take part will be in with the chance of receiving access to some really exciting opportunities, including the chance to come and support their chosen team in the Olympic Park on the day of the Olympic Opening Ceremony!
Schools and colleges can feedback with who they are supporting via the interactive map:
