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.
More confident and competent movers who are increasingly likely to engage in lifelong physical activity. Movement is crucial to the positive physical and mental health and wellbeing of young people.
