Australia's Physical Activity Problem
Here's a quick outline of what we know when it comes to our nation's children and their physical activity patterns inside and outside of schools.
Did you know?
Schools are required to deliver a minimum of 150 minutes of planned moderate with some vigorous phyiscal activity throughout a school week.
Australia's Physical Activity and Sedentry Behaviour Guidelines
A child should be invovled in 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity every day and activities that strengthen muscle and bone 3 days a week.
Roughly 1 in 5 children are meeting the required physical activity levels in a day.
Roughly 1 in 5 children are above the healthy weight level.
The solution... EXERGAMES!
"Principals and teachers need to consider the expertise and approaches of external providers in the delivery of Physical Education" (NSW Department of Education, 2019).
Exergames is the brainchild of Adam Parker, who grew up in Parkes, a regional town of NSW. He completed a Bachelor of Health and Physical Education at Charles Sturt University, followed by a Graduate Diploma in Psychology.
The idea for Exergames came to Adam whilst holding a Director role at one of the top-tiered American sport camps – The International Sports Training Camp – a business he has contributed to for the past six summers. Also performing as a Tour Manager for the well-established company – UK Elite – whom provide engaging soccer programs throughout America.
