Pre-School Athletics Classes
29 Mar 18
Pitreavie AAC will be offering pre-school age athletics classes beginning in January 2018.
Note - the event start date is towards the end of the block - this is just to allow the closing date to be after the start date and allow sign-ups once a block has started. The classes will commence week beginning 15/01/2018
Current research advises that in addition to unstructured play time, children aged 3-5 should have 60 minutes of structured physical activity per day. Pitreavie AAC’s pre-school athletics programme introduces children to fundamental athletics skills – running, throwing and jumping - in a non-competitive, fun environment.
The classes will develop physical attributes like agility, coordination and balance and also social skills including cooperation, interaction with adults and peers, persistence, discipline, asking for help, resilience, the value of effort and self-confidence.
All classes will be planned and led by a qualified athletics coach with adult to child ratio not exceeding 1:8. We use the Pitreavie Athletics Club gym (below) and the grass area outside (weather permitting).
Classes are never cancelled due to poor weather as the clubhouse is fully equipped with facilities.
Classes will run during school term times and last 45 minutes. There will initially be 3 classes, Thursday morning from 1000 to 1045 and 1315 to 14.00 and also Saturday 9.00 - 9.45. The cost of each class is £4.00, paid in a block per term.
If signing up during the term the cost will reflect the number of classes left in the block. Please ensure you select the correct start date in the questions so you are charged correctly.
