Balanceability is the perfect starting point in a child’s journey in learning to ride a bike! This programme is aimed at reception aged children, providing them with their first taste of mobile independence; through fun games it focuses on establishing fundamental and secure balance which is vital in learning to ride a bicycle.

Change 4 Life Champions Conference (FREE for SSP Affiliated Schools)

Change 4 Life is a national campaign to tackle the causes of obesity.  At our annual C4L Champions conference four of your year 5 students will receive specialist training in how to be a C4L champion whilst a member of your staff receives training on how to support your champions. Once your champions have received their training, they will be tasked with the responsibility of running a C4L club in their schools. They should target their club at the least active children to ensure that they are achieving the CMO guidelines of 60 active minutes per day.

Individual Pentathlons (FREE for SSP Affiliated Schools)

We currently run individual pentathlons for years 3, 4, 5 & 6. The pentathlons take place after school at a local secondary school, thus enabling mass participation. The pentathlons is made up of 6 different events (only the top 5 scores count towards your overall score): standing long jump, standing triple jump, speed bounce, shuttle run, balance test and chest push. Once we have collated all the scores on our Sportshall Athletics database we are able to email the children’s results to the parents and/or schools.

Midday Supervisor Training is the perfect opportunity for you to up skill your midday workforce. At each training session we introduce as many new and exciting lunchtime games and activities that encourage your students to stay active throughout their lunch break. We have received exceptional feedback over the past few years from the midday supervisors attending our courses.
