Schools Programme

A diverse and inclusive Junior fitness programme based in the heart of Pembrokeshire and open to all. 

The programme aims to develop the fitness and health of youths in Pembrokeshire, tackling obesity and providing opportunities for teenagers to learn how to train properly and safely in a supportive environment which promotes social interaction and an ethos where everyone succeeds regardless of background or ability.

Individuals learn values of respect of self and of others, being inclusive, giving back and helping others, discipline, commitment and a good work ethic.

Youths learn how to train smart for sport and for health while interacting socially through training sessions.

Sessions focus on developing healthy and positive relationships with exercise and include:-

  • How to support and help your training partner and others in the group
  • Advice on training and encouragement to eat healthily
  • Gaining knowledge about basic coaching skills and gym safety
  • How to identify and correct problems with technique
  • Finding a healthy balance between sport, training, education and time to socialise.
  • Mobility training
  • Technical development
  • Strength exercises
  • Weightlifting exercises
  • Body weight exercises
  • Conditioning exercises to improve joint stability
  • Conditioning exercises to balance left and right strength imbalances
  • Core strength, abdominals and trunk exercises

We also cover a variety topics informally and based around areas such as eating sensibly for sports participation and health, anti-doping, coping with stress in competition and best ways to prepare for competition.

A number of the youth members participate in other sports, therefore we encourage healthy amounts of training and modify training plans to suit other sports involvement. We encourage a healthy balance between sport, training, education and time to socialise. We encourage members to train smart and to balance their lifestyle. 

Coaches, volunteers and our members themselves create a supportive and friendly environment where the development of the person is just as important as developing athletes and their fitness.

The way we train allows and encourages members to interact socially and make friends. We encourage our members to train with a partner and help each other through training sessions, especially supporting each other with coaching cues and motivation.

Our younger members continue to develop in confidence, develop their well-being and they most definitely interact more socially.

We offer an enjoyable way to exercise, a fantastic way to make friends and benefit socially. All abilities are welcome, new members are welcome, we run fully inclusive sessions. 

Junior sessions are held Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings, approximately one hour sessions, between 3.30pm and 5.30pm on week days and from 8.30 am on Saturdays.
