Face-to-face exercise programs for kids and young people who experience challenges or barriers to physical activity participation at school or in the community.
Services are provided by Accredited Exercise Physiologists &/or Exercise Scientists - experts in using exercise for health. We provide all abilities and inclusive exercise programs that provide a positive exercise experience for all kids and young people.
Our UWA services are open to all kids and young people from the age of 5 - 18, but we specialise in providing services for those who are unable or unwilling to participate in community or school activities, or need a bit of additional support to engage in activity.
We aim to build physical literacy (e.g., fitness, strength, skills), motivation and confidence, and improve health but we make sure to do so in a supportive and fun way so that all young people have a positive exercise experience.
Our team can support poor or delayed movement skills; behavioural, developmental or social challenges (e.g. non-verbal, social or activity anxiety); musculoskeletal conditions; childhood cancer; metabolic disease; complex juvenile conditions (incl. intellectual/behavioural difficulties, depression/anxiety and Autism) and more!
Specific services available at UWA include:
Working 1-on-1 with a Thriving Instructor.
Sessions are tailored to the goals, developmental stage and preferences of the young person or family.
Pre- and post assessments are built into the sessions, along with end of term reports for families or referrers.
Group - Strength & Fitness
Tailored specifically for young people to build their gym and movement literacy, muscle strength and confidence to be active. Sessions are conducted in a small group environment and parents/guardians have the option to participate in alongside their young person.
Fun Fitness (Small Group)
Small group sessions to build physical literacy and fitness, exercise enjoyment and social skills led by Thriving Instructors.
Low instructor to participant ratio of 1:4 to cater for individuals needs.
Mixed ages and abilities, with groups matched on goals, needs and personality!
