Through the Little Athletics Program for Schools (LAPS), FREE professional learning during the program is available for the teacher accompanying each class. Each teacher will learn the basic technique of running (sprints, hurdles and relays), jumping (long and triple jump) and throwing skills (shot put and discus). LAACT’s suitably qualified coaches can also tailor the learning to meet the requirements of the school.
All participating schools will also receive a FREE comprehensive LAPS CD with examples of ideal models of athletics skills, lesson plans and more which is designed specifically for primary school teachers.
