Athletics & Carnivals

Getting your students ready for the school Athletics Carnival is one thing we pride ourselves on.  We aim to inspire all students to want to do their personal best at the carnival while ensuring all students make progress during lessons.

We teach your students the correct and safe technique for all events and ways to improve distance and times. We also love helping with the planning of the day by providing staff and equipment to make sure the day runs smoothly and stress free.

K-2 Fundamental Movement skills
through Athletics

Our infant athletics program focuses on 3 areas, running, jumping and throwing.
The running lessons look at a few key areas but are by no means limited to:
  • Running in straight lines and looking forwards.
  • High knees and big strides

We teach through games, drills, and fun activities to improve technique. How often do you see kindergarten falling over running? We aim to enhance this with an effective technique in fun ways.
The throwing lessons aim to help pupils understand and practice many techniques and types of throws, we do not consider these throwing lessons ‘athletics’, but teaching them to over/ underarm throw, toss, sling, roll and aim. We also use the jumping lesson to practice in many ways, hopping, skipping, bending their knees and swinging their arms as well as soft landings.

3-6 Athletics preparation

The primary program is very different from infants, running lessons look at more specific techniques, power, and endurance.

  • Knee and arm drive
  • Sprint starts and relay
  • Endurance running

For the jumping lessons we teach pupils the scissor kick for HJ and a 4 phase LJ technique but in a safe manner.
The throwing lessons take a major change from general to specific; shot put and discus. Our teachers are well trained to safely and effectively teach these events. Teaching these safely can be hard in school, that is why Fit Futures can come in and really make a big difference to their ability and effectiveness, prepared to be impressed on carnival day!

Our running and jumping lessons are jam packed with lots of specialised equipment to help develop their technique and we have soft rubber discusses and shots to ensure safe lessons.
