New virtual toolkit to provide participants with the tools to fill the school day with activity
The Saudi Sports for All Federation (SFA) has announced the launch of its Schools on the Move program, which will enable educators to create a more active and fun school day for kids across the Kingdom. The online toolkit, launched in collaboration with the Saudi Schools Sport Federation and the Ministry of Education, will offer videos and fitness tips covering a range of training exercises and sports methodologies.
The toolkit is designed to promote physical activity and a healthier lifestyle for children throughout the school day. The program, which will run from June to December 2022, aims to empower teachers and participants via resources that help encourage children to stay active. The innovative training course will also be available to those over the age of eighteen via an e-learning platform that provides guidelines for various physical activities for students and tips to introduce simple activities into the school day.
Through online training and exercises, SFA’s initiative seeks to further enhance the Kingdom’s physical education landscape and instill key values in the hearts of the nation’s youth through sports. The program has been created to help promote innovative sporting practices among teachers, parents, volunteers, and personal trainers. Participants who have successfully finished the required 10-hour training program will receive an official SFA certificate.
The toolkit is designed to be applied across a variety of educational environments including schools, physical education classes, after-school programs, and early education play centers. Anyone interested can register for the program at (https://ott-sfa.com/).
SFA aims to target educational practitioners through the initiative, with an emphasis on the promotion of a healthy and active lifestyle. College students are also invited to register, in line with SFA’s commitment to building a healthy and vibrant ecosystem with inclusive recreational programs for all ages.
Since its establishment in 2018, SFA has played a key role in delivering on the mandates of the Ministry of Sport by encouraging a healthier and more active lifestyle. The federation’s latest initiative has been developed as part of its comprehensive five-year strategy to promote exercise across all levels of society, as part of the Kingdom’s push for 40% of residents to engage in regular physical activities by 2030.
