Kids Stretching: Free Workshop

stretching thumbnailWhat’s the latest on stretching for kids? When should your kids stretch? When shouldn’t they? Does it really matter? Will stretching improve their performance, their posture, their disposition?




Hooked on Health and activeanatomy physiotherapy are presenting a FREE workshop for kids to learn all about the importance of stretching to improve their performance in running and other sporting activities, reduce their chance of injury, and improve their movement technique

Your child will learn how to perform the important stretches, how these stretches help in sporting activities, plus some basic anatomy to help them understand which part of the body is being stretched.

This is a practical workshop for kids. Parents are encouraged to join in if they wish.

Plus… we’ll give you the basics of  planning your child’s training.

We’ll also be briefly covering the basics of forming a training programme for your child leading up to important events such as Cross Country and Athletic Carnivals
