Lemonade Kids Active is a movement-based program for kids aged 5 to 12 years. Held in the park at Joe Bradfield Centre in Carina, this fun outdoor program aims to support and promote the healthy growth of exercise and fitness through movement, movement based activities/exercises and challenges for young developing minds and bodies. It draws on movements and exercises from a variety of disciplines and sports such as Parkour, Running, Pilates, and Gymnastics.
Developed by fitness instructor and founder and head running coach of Brisbane's Toohey Trail Runners - Kevin Sherry, this exciting program for kids & tweens will use a foundation of basic movements and exercises, which become more progressive with the development of the ability of participants.
The main exercise and fitness outcomes will focus on the participants improving in the following areas:
Strength | Speed | Mobility | Agility | Flexibility | Co-ordination
The aim of this program is to help kids achieve;
- An all-rounded and balanced level of fitness and strength.
- To help build body confidence, resilience, and belief in own physical abilities.
- To help develop a long-lasting love and understanding of the value of exercise and movement!
The program itself is based on movement and motion, so the participants will be assessed on their ability in terms of mastery and control of a variety of movements and also their ability to demonstrate mastery and control at speed.
Breaking this down into more specific elements, we will be analysing Balance, Agility, Endurance, Speed, Focus.
The Program itself is split into 4 distinct levels of:
- Pink (beginner)
- Lemon (most advanced)
With movements gaining in difficulty and complexity as participants progress. Once a participant has been assessed, they can then be placed accurately into the correct level. Reassessment will take place at the end of each term with further progress determined by the improving ability of the participant.
