We provide an extensive programme of multi-sports such as Football, Rugby, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball, Dodgeball, Handball, Dance, Gymnastics, Cheerleading, Street dance, Team buildings activities and much more! Our aim is to improve every child’s functional fitness. Our fun workouts deliver measurable results and help to prepare children to develop a lifelong love of fitness. In a group setting children participate in sessions that are specifically designed to encourage enjoyment of physical activity, whilst helping to build competence and self confidence.”
PE Pro software provides …… “fit-for-purpose session plans, tailored to each specific activity that we deliver. These plans are now viewed by our school partners as essential time-saving tools that simplify the preparation and organisation of schemes of work and topic outlines. In short, we’ve done all the groundwork so that the school teachers and quality teams don’t need to!”
Ryan’s work resonates with the Life-Based Learning priority on children’s physical development combining with emotional and cognitive development to ensure the child has the best chance in life.
The Body Theme is one of nine LBL themes through which all children’s learning is directed. For example, The Body Theme integrates the National Curriculum subjects of PE, science knowledge of the body, design & technology aspects and PSHE content to create an intentional focus on children having the knowledge, the knowhow and practice in growing up fit and healthy.
