BOUNCE Squad provides participants with a great head start in developing social, emotional and fundamental skills – the perfect program for kids in the early years of school.
This all new program teaches fundamental movement skills, establishing a key foundation that will be built on in the early years of school. Participants learn important physical skills with an equal emphasis on socialising, working with others and relevant aspects of physical literacy.
The program will build on these achievements by introducing progression, challenges, taking safe risks and celebrating success to build confidence. Classes provide consistency and stability for children who are starting school.
In structured one-hour classes, BOUNCE Squad participants will be guided through fundamental movement skills, balanced with the fun of learning through play. Coaches take participants through challenges such as springing, landing, rotation, balancing, holds, swinging and object management.
With a focus on developing the whole child, participants in BOUNCE squad will also develop social skills such as working with and encouraging others, listening to instructions, asking for help and sharing. Emotional skills taught include articulating and regulating feelings, understanding how behavior affects others, managing fear and frustration and learning how to take safe risks.
Lessons are structured to include a fun, game-based warm up, followed by a number of circuits, full of activities that utilize the trampolines, soft shapes, air track and big bag. The class finishes with a cool down and feedback.
