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.
I’d never bothered with hula hooping before but I tried it when KidzRfit came into school and I really enjoyed it. I like it because it’s a bit different to the usual sports like football and rugby. I go to hula hooping club every week now and really enjoy 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.

Hoopstarz’ came to our school as part of our ‘Healthy Week’ – We had a fantastic time! Instructors engaged brilliantly with all our children. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking part, including the staff. All our children were successful and learned new skills. At the request of our children we have purchased our own hoops and they continue to HULA in school at playtime. We will definitely be Hoopstarz again!
