Tai­lor made sports pro­grams

The Australian Education Reporter - - SPORTS IN SCHOOLS -

FOUNDED in 2007 by Paul and Elissa Manera, Bring it on Sports tai­lors pro­grams for both pri­mary and sec­ondary schools – mak­ing them the per­fect so­lu­tion for all your school sport­ing needs.

A fi­nal­ist in this year’s St Ge­orge Lo­cal Busi­ness Awards, the com­pany’s highly qual­i­fied sports con­sul­tants as­sist schools with PDHPE and PASS classes, grade sports, and gen­eral recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties.

A Sports Co­or­di­na­tor and PDHPE teacher at an all-girls school said that book­ing in­struc­tors for the school through Bring it on Sports was ex­tremely easy and con­ve­nient.

“We have been us­ing this com­pany for over 6 years so we know what sports we need coaches for on a weekly ba­sis,” the teacher said.

“The only per­son I li­aise with is Paul and he or­gan­ises the rest. He trou­bleshoots all key in­for­ma­tion to the coaches – dates needed, start/fin­ish time and venue.”

The teacher said that work­ing at an all-girls high school some­times meant main­tain­ing stu­dent en­gage­ment in weekly sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties could be quite chal­leng­ing.

Bring it on Sports’ knowl­edge­able and re­lat­able in­struc­tors offer a wide range of fun drills and games which al­lows stu­dents to learn the skills of the sport in an en­gag­ing way.

“The Bring it on Sports in­struc­tors are of­ten young univer­sity stu­dents who re­late well to our stu­dents,” the teacher said.

“The knowl­edge that the in­struc­tors have on their par­tic­u­lar sport is to be com­mended. They are very adapt­able with the stu­dents as the group dy­nam­ics change reg­u­larly de­pend­ing on the mood of the stu­dents.

The stu­dents learn valuable skills, and I hear them talk­ing about the skills they have learnt which is ex­tremely pos­i­tive.”

The teacher said that, as a PDHPE teacher, the skills stu­dents learn with the in­struc­tors is ap­pli­ca­ble to those taught in PDHPE.

Some­times, stu­dents are even able to in­form teach­ers of new drills or warm up games, which widens a teacher’s knowl­edge and im­proves teach­ing prac­tice.

Bring it on Sports in­struc­tors are ap­pro­pri­ately in­sured and have their Work­ing With Chil­dren Check (WWCC), mak­ing the process hassle-free for schools.

“Work­ing in a school there are al­ways boxes that need to be ticked. Know­ing that each in­struc­tor work­ing with our stu­dents has al­ready com­pleted the process and re­ceived their WWCC is ex­tremely im­por­tant,” the teacher said.

“It is com­fort­ing know­ing that when I speak with Bring it On Sports their in­struc­tors are cleared and there is no fuss get­ting them ready to start work at our school. It is one less hassle that I need to worry about as Sports Co­or­di­na­tor.”

Paul and Elissa’s team of highly qual­i­fied sports con­sul­tants can pro­vide in­struc­tors for school sports, dance and fit­ness ac­tiv­i­ties and also offer ac­tiv­i­ties for OOSH, Va­ca­tion Care, School Hol­i­days, Kids Par­ties and Cor­po­rate.
