Our Youth Programs are inspired through the very best knowledge and resources that the world has to offer, but more importantly, they are specific to Youth training and ALWAYS at the forefront of that is “What is best for the kids”.
Remember when, as a kid, you just seemed to be able to “do” stuff?
Climb a tree, jump a ditch, backflips on the trampoline, enjoy PE at school, the list of things we could “do” was quite vast. This, to us, is physical literacy,
“The capacity to interact with the environment and is characterized by the physical competence, confidence, motivation, as well as knowledge and understanding, to pursue and master the broadest possible range of physical activities throughout a lifetime.”

Being able to “do” things is something that seems to be slowly drifting away from our youth (which obviously they take into adulthood). There is clearly a heap of factors that can contribute to it, but all of them really do come down to choices. If we choose to put ourselves in environments where we play more, learn to move better as we develop through life, be creative with our movement and most of all know how to do it correctly, then we will be able to “do” and enjoy more things for much longer in our life.
