We're really looking forward to skipping at Norton-in-Hales Primary this Friday 26th September to celebrate National Fitness Day!

The school's PE & Sport strategy team, consisting of Staff, Governors, Parents and Pupils, asked Skipping4Schools to come in and deliver our programme of constructive and creative skipping to their children, understanding that we could deliver a good workout in the form of a day of skipping fun and games! 

So, why choose skipping?

Well, as everyone knows, our skipping programmes offer so many benefits to children - but the best thing is, CHILDREN ARE GETTING FITTER WITHOUT EVEN REALISING IT BECAUSE THEY ARE HAVING TOO MUCH FUN!

That's the best thing that happens when we start coaching the children .....they love the skipping steps and ropework skills that we teach them and so work extra hard in lessons to improve their footwork and ropework skills, so they're getting fit without knowing it! And they carry on trying hard in the playground and at home. And this is boys as well as girls!

Skipping provides a full body work out, not only for children but for grown ups too! And we really encourage children to try and do the best they can and to KEEP PRACTISING, because they genuinely don't have to be the best runner or the best catcher in the school to be the best skipper.

By practising even the most basic skipping skills on a regular basis, children will improve their hand-eye coordination, will build their stamina and will increase core strength, all skills which can only benefit the classroom.

Do you want to book a skipping day for your school? Drop us a line via enquiries@skipping4schools.co.uk or give us a call on 01743 361863 and we will get you booked in.

Or would you like to incorporate skipping into your exercise routines? Then take a great first step by visiting our SkipShop and you’ll soon be able to get started.

We hope you have found this information inspirational.

Best regards,

Skipping4Schools Team
