Through the Little Athletics Program for Schools (LAPS), Little Athletics ACT (LAACT) aims to deliver an outstanding educational athletic program that provides a high quality experience to every participant. The focus is on group participation, team morale and lots of fun activities.
The students involved in this FREE program will develop basic running, jumping and throwing skills by participating in highly active sessions with suitably qualified and current coaches. Our coaches travel to schools and coach students in Sprints, Relays, Hurdles, Shot Put, Discus, Long Jump and Triple Jump.
LAPS is a flexible program so that we can tailor to every school’s needs! Which event, and the number of events to be coached is up to the school. Coaches can visit the school for a one-off session or a program of regular sessions over three weeks!
LAPS is an inclusive program and can be adapted to suit any level of ability.
At the end of LAPS all students will receive a certificate of participation.
All participating schools will also receive a FREE comprehensive LAPS CD with examples of ideal models of athletics skills, lesson plans and more which is designed specifically for primary school teachers.
