Transcript

  • 1. Major Moves Conference 2008
  • 2. Introduction
    • A division of PTE plc
    • Focus is provision of products and services that will give our clients the opportunity to increase activity amongst children.
    • Drive to search out new products, programmes and services that will attract children and inspire them to continue to undertake the activity.
  • 3. The Challenges
    • Children’s obesity levels are increasing
    • Traditional activities are not engaging the youth of today
    • Parents perceptions of kids levels of activity at odds with the reality
    • “ The physical activity levels of children in the UK have been enormously overestimated” (Archives of Disease in Childhood – Sept 2008)
    • 130 children aged 6-7 over a one week period observed
    • Actual recorded data compared with that from the Health Survey for England supplied by parents
  • 4. The Challenges
    • Health Survey for England – 146 minutes of moderate physical activity per day reported by parents
    • Research findings – 24 minutes per day!!!
    • Boys were achieving 26 minutes per day and girls 22 minutes
    • Health Survey indicated 83% of boys and 56% of girls were achieving recommended daily levels of moderate to vigorous exercise
    • Research showed just 3% of boys and 3% of girls were achieving this level.
  • 5. The Solutions
    • Children are not just small versions of adults
    • Drivers, motivations are different
    • However the problems are the same!!!
    • The solutions need to recognise the differences and the similarities
  • 6. Solutions
    • First priority in providing children’s activity is that it has to be FUN!
    • There needs to be a sustainable learning curve to continually provide new challenges.
    • If initial presentation the activity is deemed by the child to be from their “culture” barriers to access are greatly reduced.
    • Look at motor skills and team skills
    • Have competition available as an option
    • Accept that there is no one perfect solution – there needs to variety
    • Monitor and track activity and improvement
    • Try to think like a child
    • “ Your mind is in a game, your body is in a work out”
