My daughter is starting the Bronze award. She is volunteering in a homeless shelter and having singing lessons so that covers volunteering and skills but we are stuck on the physical. She was either going to cycle or jog with one of us but a family member can't do it. I'm stuck for ideas. Anyone?

One of mine joined an after school sports club that counted towards bronze if hat helps. The second joined the local running club and is now volunteering there for silver with the younger kids. Have a look at park run locally if they are interested as they can run slowly weekly and have their result recorded or the local cycle or triathlon club will do cycle and/or run session.

DS started playing squash and, most importantly (IMHO), is still doing it some year(+) down the line from completing his DofE.

Parkrun (either junior or full version - walking some/all the way round is permitted). The number of times you've been is logged via your barcode, so easy to show that you've been turning up consistently.

(It's also a good place to do DofEd volunteering)

Park run.
Or we got a family friend who was a keen cyclist to sign off the cycling. My son had a target ( to do a particular long cycle ride) and worked towards being able to achieve it. Most actualcycling done with his Dad but signed off by the assessor.

DD1 did ice-skating lessons which was great as I got DD2 to do them at the same time, and now 4 years on despite both being rubbish at sport (motor skills issues) they can both get straight on the ice and skate (unlike me who is still stuck on the barrier).

DD jogged locally & recorded her runs on Strava, which her PE teacher signed off. She's doing silver now, I wonder what she's doing for physical this year?!

DD1 did badminton and DD2 did dance.

My son walked sections of London Loop footpath and logged it on Mapmywalk, then got a family friend to sign it off. At Bronze Level that was fine.
