The Fitness Chase

The Fitness Chase provides 30 activities for up to 30 students (aged 11+ ) to practise before competing in three teams, in the ‘Fitness Chase’.

The Chase itself is a one hour event, on a time and day to suit you, that calls on the kids/teens to complete 15 of the 30 activities, plus a few surprises.

Details

The aim of the game is to help increase physical activity levels of students and increase their competence in a broad range of areas including strength, cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, balance, speed, power, co-ordination and dexterity.

For the most part students can pick and choose which activities they do on the day, but not always. The more activities students feel competent at, the better.

Giving students the list of  activities  4 – 8 weeks before the event and providing them with the opportunity to practise them is where many of the benefits lay i.e. helping students to get fitter as well as more competent and confident.

Rewards

Each activity scores points and shortly after the event finishes Catch Fitness announces first, second and third as well as the winners of our ‘Surprise Challenges’ which we announce on the day.  We’ll also organise award certificates for your school to print out* at the end (or we can have these delivered to you).

We’ll also email you photos and videos showcasing each teams efforts on the day.

Important to note

Book in: Schools need to book a day and time of the event with us. Time slots may get booked up so get in early and at least four weeks beforehand.

Equipment: Each team will need one phone or ipad (Android or Apple) to use an App for the actual Fitness Chase and upload to it photos and videos of the activities they do. The Catch Fitness Crew will be participating on the day from afar, loading up surprise challenges and a leader-board.  Otherwise very little equipment is required and all of it should all be readily accessible to your school. A more detailed list is provided on purchase of the programme.

Photos and videos: There will be heaps and all of them will provided to your school shortly after the event in case you want to show parents what everyone got up to.

Privacy: No student names or details are requested or required by us to run the Fitness Chase. We do not keep a copy of any photos or videos and delete all of them within 12 weeks of the event.  No photos, videos or other material will by used by us in any way that identifies students or the school without your express consent.  Our full privacy policy can be found here.

What now?

Once you register your class we will put you on our list to be emailed the 30 activities, posters to print off for putting around your school/gym or for inclusion into your newsletter, as well as a list of any equipment required. (Emails go out February 7th 2020).

Example activity

One of the activities is balancing on one leg for 20 seconds (wheelchair users, with front wheels off the ground).   The Fitness Chase event activity may require 50% of the team to be filmed successfully doing the challenge,  or we may ask for all those with a first name starting with a letter between A and M to do the activity.

Teams/students can have as many attempts as they like of any activity on the day but the clock is ticking.  They will only have one hour to do all the activities.

All three teams are given the same activities.
