This UNIQUE activity was developed by the Kidz R Fit team to engage more children in physical activity, as still most children do not meet the guidelines set out by The Department of Health of 60 minutes of physical activity per day.
Hoopstarz is one of the most exciting, unique and engaging activities available for children and you can’t fail to be impressed by the enjoyment it creates and the sense of achievement the children gain from participating. The classes build confidence and self-esteem and promote the importance of staying fit and healthy. We use up to date music in the sessions which adds to the atmosphere and makes it almost like a party. We do choreography, tricks and games, there are hoop wars to be won and skills to be mastered making it a high energy, fun packed session.
The Hoopstarz session really got the children enthused and motivated to try hula hooping as a fun physical activity. The event went so well that we now have a Hula Hooping after school club which the children love!

An absolutely fantastic experience for staff and children alike. Some children were very unsure about taking part at first until they walked into the hall and started! The enthusiasm was infectious. ALL children joined in, some excelled. The activities were brilliantly explained and demonstrated. The effect on the children was far reaching. Some have self esteem issues and these were totally overcome in the half hour session. One teacher had tears in her eyes as she watched some children progress through the session. Highly recommend it!!

The staff are so enthusiastic with the children and are organised and professional to work with -the organisation of the entire hula-hooping project for the Sport Partnership was completely stress-free.
