SCHOOL & STUDENT FITNESS & FUNCTION
Changing the focus is creating positive change in PE and the holistic view of physical literacy in schools.
Sport is a bi-product of a healthy life whether competitive of social but all of this is defined by our primitive ability to move well and pain free so MIND work closely with schools to provide an end-to-end service from initial baseline assessment to longitudinal tracking and intervention programs…by allied health professionals rather than personal trainers or sport coaches.
Overloading our children through PE classes, extra-curricular sport and additional community sport through a week is a dangerous mixture so we align the real development of each student on an individual basis as each child grows physically and emotionally at a different rate.
Objective performance testing can be designed to suit different levels of experience and to each sporting code.
Performance testing is not only about elitism and development but is a foundation of early identification of injury risk. Aligning these assessments with the coaching team, PE teachers and parents allows a proactive approach to player welfare and optimising the long-term career.
Special assessments are available for concussion tracking and fundamental movement to highlight risks of soft-tissue injuries and common injuries such as ACL’s.
Teachers are the front line to promote and encourage active living and healthy lives to we ensure they are prepared and tooled up with the right resources to provide the very best care and development to their students.
Children replicate what they see and adapt to an environment quickly and socially so MIND support the entire school with staff well-being programs aligned directly to the student programs too.
From the front desk to the Principals office, good habits are connected through our Corporate Inspiration and My Mind Voyage programs including workshops, professional development and external support for individual health care and wellness.
Every staff member can access professional services under strict practitioner/patient confidentiality and these support services have proven to retain staff in a better, more motivated workplace environment.
