WELCOME TO KICKSTART!
BRINGING THAI BOXING TO YOUR SCHOOL!!
Thank you for taking time to look at the Kickstart website.
Health and wellbeing has never attracted so much attention, unfortunately the majority of this attention is negative, such as increased levels of obesity, poor nutrition, inactivity etc. The Coalition Government believes that we need action to promote health, and encourage behaviour change to help people live healthier lives.
Kickstart does just that; it promotes health and encourages positive and sustained health changes. Kickstart uses a practical approach to improve the emotional, social and physical well being of, not only children and young people, but the whole school community. The focus on the whole school community is essential in facilitating sustained changes to the health and well being of our community.
For many, the first challenge is finding an activity capable of engaging individuals and importantly an activity that can maintain this engagement. Kickstart has found an activity that can not only engage individuals but the delivery approach ensures that those participating are given a fun and positive experience. Encouragement to enjoy the experience and the opportunity to participate successfully in an activity, results in individuals being more likely to remain involved in that activity (and others) for life.
The key engagement activity used in any Kickstart programme is Thai boxing. Participation in Thai Boxing can offer many benefits for individuals (please see the benefits tab on the website).
In addition to the benefits Kickstart programmes offer to participants, there are numerous clear links made with Local and National Strategies:
We at Kickstart appreciate that every school is different and as a result, we tailor our services to suit each individual school’s requirement. Kickstart takes a whole school approach with programmes designed for children, young people, parents / carers and school staff.
We hope you find our website useful and that you consider the benefits of introducing the Kickstart programmes within your School.
Please contact us to discuss how Kickstart can benefit your pupils, school staff and parents / carers. We would love to hear from you!
