Stay Active has a partnership with Cycling Australia through Sporting Schools which means you can book us directly for your next Ride Nation Schools program. Ride Nation Schools has replaced Let's Ride as Cycling Australia's national participation program and supports children in guiding them through the stages of the program to provide parents with a peace of mind that they will develop the skills to become safe and responsible riders.
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 Ride Nation – Skills (playground) 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 is accredited to run the Ride Nation - Skills (playground) program, which is the first of the three levels. This six week program focuses on developing the essential bike control skills of braking, balancing and riding. The skills learnt in this program will allow them to ride around in traffic free environments (school yard, park and around the block).
Stay Active can deliver an after-school Ride Nation – Skills (playground) 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 whom 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.
The coach to participant ratio is strictly 1:15.
Stay Active encourages children and parents to provide their own bike during our Ride Nation - Skills (playground) program. If your school needs to hire bikes, this will be an additional cost. However, it is important to note this will be discussed with the school prior to scheduling the program.
