Boosting Physical Literacy in Your School
 

"Physical literacy is the development of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that permit a child to move confidently and with control in a wide range of physical activity, rhythmic (dance) and sport situations....." The Canadian Sport for Life movement (CS4L) and the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD)

Our Skipping Days offer schools a welcome and simple solution to boosting Physical Literacy in all children and enabling them to take ownership of their own improvement in a physical activity.

 ....how does a Skipping4Schools day help?

Skipping is itself a Fundamental Movement Skill and can help not only with speeding up those nifty footwork skills or improving hand/eye coordination along with so many other skills needed within other sports, but it also assists in strengthening the core muscles, essential for dancers and gymnasts but equally as important for helping and improving everyday movement in children.

In addition, our creative and constructive resources pack - sent free of charge after a coaching day - and which can be knitted into any PE curriculum, helps to get playgrounds buzzing and bouncing for weeks and months afterwards!

Find out how you can reduce the cost of your Skipping4Schools skipping day here or you can drop us a line to book a fun skipping day with Skipping4Schools.
