Stay Active encourages all students aged 5 - 12 years to participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day, to meet the minimum recommended requirements for this age group as outlined in the Australian Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines. Participating in an after-school program enables students to achieve their 60 minutes, as well as the other great benefits of physical activity such as enhancement of memory, concentration, behaviour and academic achievement.
Stay Active can deliver an after-school program ranging from 4 – 8 weeks in duration. Our maximum number of participants is 25, or 30 if there is an allocated teacher/SSO who actively assists every week. We ask that, where possible, the program is offered to an age range of children who span across no more than three year levels (e.g. years R – 2). This allows our Children’s Sports Facilitators to design a program that is tailored to that specific age group.
Stay Active is proud to be partnered with seven National/State Sporting Organisations through Sporting Schools.
Sporting Schools is a $240 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools to increase children's participation in sport, and to connect them with community sporting opportunities.
Sporting Schools programs are provided FREE to children and their families to help students build the confidence and capability to stay active for life.
If the sport you are interested in has the Sporting Schools icon next to it, and you have been successful in receiving Sporting Schools funding for this term, please let us know at time of booking.
