Fitness through Football

A popular Schools Programme delivered during curriculum time to the local cluster.

Working with P7 pupils, the aim, as the name suggests, is to help pupils become fitter using football skills to engage in a fitness programme. Delivered over an 8 week time frame, the syllabus includes fitness testing during week one, including the Bleep Test/T-Test, press ups and sit ups.

Pupils record their information, which is stored until the end of the block. Each week thereafter, pupils will receive football coaching, working on various skills and techniques, and also participate in homework tasks to improve fitness.

On the final week, the pupils are re-tested with the same initial tests, and Broxburn United Sports Club make the comparison, presenting the final results to the school. 


Fun Start Fitness

Fun Start Fitness is a school programme promoting health, sport and education.

The main session takes place over 5 weeks during curriculum time within the school, delivering key messages around health within a sporting context. Working with P3 pupils, the children are actively involved in a presentation covering: Childrens Mental Health, Importance of Water, Food Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Oral Health, then participate in a physical session, raising the heart rate and encouraging the pupils to ENCOURAGE their peers.

School sessions are free for schools.

The Community Fun Start Fitness Programme is aimed at having FUN, playing games using lots of energy and receiving key messages through the structured play.

We aim to help people become fitter, have fun and learn the importance of staying healthy.

When: Fun sessions take place each Friday afternoon

Where: At Strathbrock Community Centre:

Times: 2.30pm – 3.30pm (P1-3), 3.30 – 4.30pm (P4-7)
