1. Mental Health: 21st-century children are facing an entirely new childhood experience in that movement for many is minimal in comparison to previous generations. A recent All-Party Parliamentary Group report has demonstrated that movement is central and fundamental to children’s positive mental health.
2. Physical Health: When young people start primary school, 20% of them are either overweight or obese. This figure rises alarmingly to 35% by the time they leave primary school. Inactivity is a major cause of this worrying statistic.
Through Sporting Age, we aim to develop children who are confident and competent in fundamental movement skills. Making them ready to embark on a healthy, active secondary school education and lifelong participation in physical activity.
