YMCA Kids’ Fitness Dance and YMCA Kids’ Fitness Play and Games courses are ideal for anyone interested in running health-related exercise sessions for children, those already running sessions but without a formal qualification and current fitness instructors wanting to broaden their skills to work with children in fitness and activity sessions.
The courses will teach you how to adapt your skills and use different activities to motivate children from the ages of five to sixteen. They also examine setting up and running after school activities, holiday play and activity schemes and teaching on an already established children’s programme. Our tutors have extensive experience of working with children and throughout the course they will share their unique knowledge and practical experience with you.
We have developed two distinct approaches that will allow instructors to appeal to different groups of children: dance activities (cheerleading, street dance and musical theatre) and play and games.
