How it Works

Our trained and certified instructors bring all the necessary equipment to your school and operate a structured, age appropriate program that provides your students with the foundational motor skills through fun games, relay races, obstacle courses and drills.

We also work with you to learn the specifics of your school's policies and procedures to ensure consistency from the class room to the field and we pride ourselves on maintaining open and consistent communication with school staff to ensure the children are enjoying and benefiting from our program.

The Benefits of Physical Activity

There are numerous health benefits to being active. Regular physical activity improves strength, builds lean muscle and decreases body fat. It also prevents a range of chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, and stroke, which are the three leading causes of death.

In addition to the health benefits, there is growing evidence that regular physical activity enhances learning and school achievement. In the same way that exercise benefits the muscles, heart, lungs and bones, it also develops key areas of the brain. Physical activity fuels the brain with oxygen, enhances connections between neurons and assists in memory. Children in daily physical activity have shown superior academic performance and attitude toward school. Exercise has been shown to improve scores on short-term memory, reaction time and creativity; and students who exercised daily outperformed other students on exams.

"Thank you for stepping in this past year and providing an excellent PE program to our students. We enjoyed getting to know your wonderful program"
