Pre-School Athletics Classes Block Commencing April 2018
19 Apr 18
Pitreavie AAC will be offering the next block of pre-school age athletics classes beginning in April 2018. The block will start Thursday the 19th or Saturday 21st April 2018 and run for 10 weeks.
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 seldom 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 the 10 week block for each class is £36.00, paid in a block per term (this takes account of a discount of 1 week discount to take account of the cancelled classs in the last block).
