Sporting Schools

 

Sporting Schools is a national program available to all Australian primary schools. 

Sporting Schools is all about fostering a lifelong interest in sport among Australian children.

Its key purpose is to encourage more children to do more sport-based activities, and empower schools to help them do that. Central to schools achieving that outcome is the expert, enthusiastic involvement of sporting organisations, clubs and coaches.

Gymnastics South Australia will be working with schools to deliver LaunchPad as part of the Sporting Schools Program. Gymnastics Australia’s LaunchPad program caters for children of all ages and are expertly designed to cater for all stages of physical, social and cognitive development.  Each program is supported by ‘easy to use’ lesson plans for coaches and teachers that are safe, fun, require minimal equipment and align with the new Australian Curriculum.

Schools interested in delivering Gymnastics are encouraged to contact Chelsea Wilkinson, Participation and Club Services Manager, launchpad@gymsa.com.au or go to the Sporting Schools website to register your school.
