Content:

  • Designed specifically for schools to implement into their curriculum by up-skilling classroom teachers on how to ensure every single child in their class develops a positive association with physical activity
  • The program gives teachers the knowledge to identify when and why different children are not enjoying physical activity in their class and the ability to remedy the problem immediately (a dislike, indifference or withdrawal from exercise is becoming a large problem within many schools)
  • The importance of this skill cannot be underestimated. Children that develop a negative association to physical activity become inactive teens, who then become inactive adults. Obesity and metabolic disease are currently the number one health problem in Australia costing the nation billions of dollars annually and prematurely killing over 100 Australians a day. By participating in this seminar teachers have the ability to do their part in creating a healthy Australia!
  • This program changes the way teachers and trainers instruct physical activity:

– Incentives for all participants (ensuring the slowest or least competent students have just as much incentive to exercise as the faster more skilled students)
– Exclusion Free
– Everyone participating at all times
– Everyone moving at all times ( yes it actually builds fitness and strength) - much of what currently passes for physical activity in many schools could be better described as standing around in the sun (IE not much huffing or puffing going on for the majority of students, and definitely very few physical health benefits)
– Revolutionary procedures on how to best control and coordinate students during physical activity. (Many teachers avoid taking their students out for physical activity because of the difficulty and extra effort required to control the students. Not anymore)
– Showing teachers how to combine daily fitness with curriculum subject like maths, English and science to ensure there is always time to get active every day
– Activity Profiling: Helping all children and their families find physical activities (not just sports) they enjoy and love to play
