Junior Fitletics (After-school program)

Junior Fitletics is an after-school fitness program offering structured physical activities specifically designed for 4-12 year old children. Each class throughout the term will feature different activities that are designed to achieve specific fitness goals. Our programs are centred around building the basic fundamentals of fitness including strength, balance, coordination, cardiovascular endurance, speed & agility, flexibility, teamwork, and mindfulness skills. 

All classes begin straight after school at the safety of the school oval providing working families with the extra time before pick up.

At the end of term, all participants will receive a certificate of recognition and a small prize to bring home to celebrate their achievements.
