Gear Up For Sport is back!

Gear Up for Sport is back for 2022! And to be in with a chance of winning a share of £3,000 for your youth sports team, we’re asking you to submit a short Team Spirit video clip.

This year, there are three cash prizes up for grabs for the videos that best showcase the spirit of their team:

Gold: £1,500

Silver: £1,000

Bronze: £500

So, to win cash for your club kitty, we need you to give it your all. Remember, you have complete creative freedom, and winners will be original, funny, creative, inspiring, fun, or all of the above!

Handy hints and tips to help you capture the perfect video of your team spirit

Think outside the box

The winning videos will be the ones that stand out, so get creative! Use effects when taking your video to make it look quirky and fun.

Action shots

Do some of your team members have special skills? Show them off! Action shots work really well, too. (But remember; don’t try anything risky, we don’t want anyone to get hurt!)

Use an app

Video sharing apps are becoming more and more popular and provide an easy way to create a short video with creative visual tricks. Use their transition features to create a clever video sequence that stands out from the crowd.


GoPros are great for taking a time-lapse, but you don’t need specialist equipment – most smartphones also have a time-lapse feature within their camera settings. You just need to ensure that you have accurate and reliable shutter triggering. One-second intervals should be plenty for a moving team shot!


Think about how your team are positioned in the shot; is there something clever you can do to make a really interesting video? Perhaps you could try and make the shot look symmetrical or play with the perspective by shooting from above, or below?

What you need to know

  • Remember, videos must be no longer than one minute in length.
  • You must submit your entry by midnight on Wednesday 21st September 2022.
  • No entries will be accepted after this time.
  • Your video must be emailed to with your name, your club’s name and a contact number. If you don’t supply these, there’s a chance your entry might not be counted, so make sure you include them!
