For several years now, youngsters aged 8 to 15 have looked forward to the annual Olympic Week - the free event held in the October school holidays featuring sports taster sessions and introductions to the world of Olympism.
With these sessions, workshops blending sport and culture, and meet-ups with outstanding athletes and prominent guests - not to mention the educational web series - The Olympic Museum offers a packed and continually updated programme to young people. Check out the programme for this year and previous ones without delay. Interested? Then get your trainers on, dig out your shorts and join us for the next Olympic Week!
Olympic Week 2021
In 2021, Olympic Week is going hybrid, with a programme organised both at the Museum and online! You can be sure that we have plenty of sporting surprises in store for both. Check out the programme and sign up to the workshops, or tune into the web series - it’s up to you (you can even do both!).
DIGITAL OLYMPIC WEEK
Continue your discovery of the Olympic world through the educational web series developed especially for you!
Are you a fan of the history of the Olympic Games? Join Aline and Evelyne in the “A Day at The Museum” series to hear amazing tales of past, present and future Games.
Do you prefer discovering new sports? Then join Alex to find out about and test new sports. But be careful - it’s much more difficult than it seems!
“A Day at The Museum”
With plenty of anecdotes and all kinds of stories on the Olympic Games, Aline and Evelyne return for the second series, which focuses on the Winter Games and opening ceremonies. So if you never miss winter sports competitions, and if you’ve loved watching a Games opening ceremony, with its fireworks and colourful costumes, you’re in the right place! This is a fun and enjoyable way to learn more about the history of the Games.
“Fit & Fun”
Basketball, BMX, golf, judo, volleyball… Do you think you know about these (and other) sports? Would you like to give them a try even though you’ve never taken the plunge? Alex, the Museum reporter, has tried them out for you, and takes you across Lausanne to tell you all about them. Fasten your (judo) belt and sit back for the ride. This is a fun way to learn all about these Olympic sports!
All week, TOM TV participants step into the shoes of journalists and camera operators to produce a one-of-a-kind sports programme! The best bits will be shown on our social media at the end of the week.
“Olympic Week on TikTok”
As the various clubs that are normally involved in Olympic Week are unable to come to The Olympic Museum this year, they’ve turned themselves into Hollywood stars on TikTok.
