Get The Kids Involved This Summer
In less than a month we begin the Summer Edition of of the Young ADAPT Awards in both the UK and the States. So get those kids ready for a summer they’ll never forget!
Kids age 7-10 – Take on the Junior Award
For ages 7-10 years, this is an early years development point that helps to introduce and promote the ADAPT principles of physical and mental health, competence and confidence at an early age, and to check that the young practitioner is on a positive, fun and informed path with their training.
The focus here is on the young practitioner’s ability to perform basic movements with a reasonable level of technical skill and an understanding of safe practice, respect for themselves, others and their environment, teamwork and a willingness to learn. The Junior Award is comprised of a social training experience allowing them to interact and learn from each other as well as the Young ADAPT Tutors.
Kids age 11-15 – Take on the Youth Award
For ages 11-15 years the focus of this Award is for the student to be able to move at a good level, demonstrating basic skills such as jumps, rolls, arm jumps, vaults, tic-tacs, balance, etc, while also showing combinations of these movements to produce basic fluidity over terrain and the ability to adapt to new challenges. This Award also begins introducing the concepts of physical fitness and development as a significant aspect of healthy, progressive training.
