Little Athletics Program For Schools (LAPS)

Little Athletics NSW is offering an outstanding educational athletic program for schools

Author: Athletics NSW Administrator/Thursday, 18 August 2016/Categories: Coaching, Employment

Little Athletics NSW is offering LAPS aiming to deliver an outstanding educational athletic program with focus on group participation, team moral while also completing lots of fun activities

The children involved will develop basic running, jumping and throwing skills by participating in highly active sessions with Australian Track & Field Coaches Association qualified coaches.

The qualified coaches travel to schools and coach students in Sprints, Relays, Hurdles, Shot Put, Discus, Long Jump and High Jump. Which event, and the number of events to be coached is up to the school. LAPS is a flexible program so that we can cater for every school's needs! Coaches can visit the school for a one-off session or a program of regular sessions over many weeks!

The cost of the program is $40 per coach for each hour of coaching time and the minimum payment for bookings is 3 hours.

All participating schools will also receive a FREE CD comprising the LAPS Resource Kit. This kit is designed specifically for NSW primary school teachers and is based on the PDHPE K-6 curriculum for athletics and at the end of the school coaching program, all students will receive a certificate of participation and a ruler.

FREE in-servicing of the teacher accompanying each group is available during the coaching session and a certificate will be issued.
