School Program Overview

Reading Rockets Hoop It Up Programme was launhoopitupched by the club in September 2012 to provide young children with a sports programme which also helped them to learn lessons on how to have a happy and healthier lifestyle. The club is aware of the ongoing battle with childhood obesity in the Country and how important it is that children find ways to stay active through sport.

The programme provides schools with a 30 week structured programme split into 10 week blocks which is delivered to children between years 3-6. Each programme has been specifically designed for these age groups in which suitable adaptations have been made to cater for each one.

The programme has detailed lesson plans for the coaches to ensure that there is consistency with the programme and also so teachers are able to get an idea of how the group are progressing and whether they are on course for their age group in regards to their physical literacy.

As well as ensuring the children are progressing In their physical skills each week a healthy lifestyle topic is focussed on and then integrated into the session through a variety of games, quizzes and short discussion. Delivering the messages within the session gives the children a direct link between the lifestyle message, exercising and how they work hand in hand.
