Welcome Speech (For Schools / Educational Institutions)

Hello and warm good morning to all! Today, the sun is bright, the sky is clear and the breeze is blowing gently. I believe we truly hit the jackpot by selecting this date and venue to host our sports day. On this pleasant day, I, [name], your host for the event, warmly welcome you all to the sports day of [school/institute name].

I would request our respected guardians to kindly take the seats on the left of the activity area. I would also request the students to take the seats on the right of the activity area. Dear volunteers, kindly assist everyone in finding their seats and getting settled. Thank you. 

Now, I would like to invite our respected principal sir/ma’am and our dear teachers to come to the front and take their seats. We will soon commence the event. Thank you. 

Welcome Speech (For Local Clubs / Non-Educational Institutions)

People often tend to overlook the importance of sports and games in daily life. Taking part in sports not only keeps one healthy and fit, but it also helps one learn several lessons of life such as discipline, responsibility and teamwork.

Today, we are here to witness the 25th annual sports day of [club name]. 25 years ago, the founder of our club, Mr [name], started this yearly tradition to motivate young and old to take a break from their busy lifestyles and spend some time playing sports. Today, we don’t have our beloved founder among us, but his blessings are always with us. And with the belief that he is still here watching over us and this event, I, [name], welcome you all to [club name]’s 25th sports day event.

I would like to especially welcome our chief guest, the honourable Mr / Ms [name], M.L.A., who graciously accepted our invitation despite having a packed schedule. Thank you so much, sir/ma’am. It is an honour to have you here with us today. And thank you to all the participants, guardians and audience members who have joined us today. Thank you.

Sports Day Events (For Educational as Well as Non-Educational Institutions) 

Running is an excellent activity. It not only keeps us fit but also strengthens our bones, builds muscles and improves the functioning of our cardiovascular system. Our first event is a 200 m flat race (boys) for [classes x and y OR age group x to y]. I would request the participants to kindly take their positions at the starting point and cooperate with the staff on the ground. Thank you. 

We have our first winner for the day! For the 200 m flat race (boys) for [classes x and y OR age group x to y], the winner is [name]. Congratulations to you, [name]. Now we will move on to the next race – a 200 m flat race (girls) for [classes x and y OR age group x to y] – 

It is now time for the young ones to shine. The next event is a chocolate race for kids (in nursery and kindergarten OR up to 5 years). I request the volunteers to kindly guide the kids to the starting point. Thank you. 

Wow! That was fun, wasn’t it? Did you get a chocolate, little one? Yay, everyone got chocolates! We will be awarding all the kids who took part in this race. So, please stay with us until the end. Thank you. Dear volunteers, kindly guide the children back to their seats. 

The next event is the sack race. I request the participants to take their sacks from the counter beside the starting point and take their positions. Thank you. 

What a fun race! I hope you all enjoyed taking part in it. The winner of the sack race is [name]. Congratulations to you. 

Now, we will move on to the 150 m hurdle race. — [The anchor can similarly make announcements for different activities and carry on with the event.]
