Help your children to be healthy, active, confident and happy!
How funetics can help your child!
funetics, created by England Athletics, provides a safe, fun and nurturing environment for children to learn, develop and practice fundamental movement skills: running, jumping and throwing; giving them the confidence to boost their activity levels and to support them in different sports in the future.
With sessions and activities available within the school environment (either in curriculum time, school clubs (breakfast and after-school) or within the community (including some of England Athletics; affiliated clubs), funetics offer athletics clubs for 4-11 year olds all year round.
Where are funetics sessions held?
funetics sessions are typically held at primary schools through breakfast clubs, curriculum lessons and after school clubs, as well as in community venues such as England Athletics Clubs.
The programmes typically run for a block of 6–12 weeks at your child’s sports club. Each week will involve your child taking part in fun activities which include:
- Fun and engaging warm up and cool down activities
- A minimum of two activities focused on either running, jumping or throwing
You will have access to the funetics App track your child's progress
You can download the free 'funetics App' which allows you to track your own child’s progress digitally as they learn fundamental movement skills each week. This encourages your child to become more confident as they progress throughout the programme, and to be more active now and as they grow up.
On the last week of every programme your child will take part in a competition week when they try and beat their own personal bests.
An assessment of your child and report will be available to download through the free funetics parents’ app.
In addition, your child will be rewarded with online badges and achievements during each funetics course.
