What is Get Set Go?

Get Set Go is a fun initiative which allows kids to develop the essential movement skills they need to make participation in games and sport more fun and successful, including:

  • Physical movement skills
  • Knowledge and cognitive skills
  • Emotional and social skills

What is Run Jump Throw?

Run Jump Throw is all about developing athletics-specific skills in a fun, inclusive way that encourages kids’ to participate in athletics. This innovative programme for Grades 7+ uses a bottom-up rather than a top-down approach to teach skills needed for each athletics movement – so children learn the necessary fundamental skills and basic movement patterns before being taught the refined skills.

Run Jump Throw creates an enjoyable environment where children learn at their own pace and gain confidence and overall competence in athletics skills.
