About Hoopstarz

This UNIQUE activity was developed to help schools be able to encourage more children to be more active more often, helping them to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day as per guidelines of  The Department of Health

In 2019 Hoopstarz spun out of the North East and is now available to franchise across the UK.

Hoopstarz is the UK’s ONLY hula-hooping exclusive franchise and in its home territory of the North East thousands of children spin around in joy every term.

Hoopstarz started in 2012 as a spin-off of Tracey’s original business; Kidz R Fit. When she realised the impact her Hoopstarz programme was having on kids she realised that she was onto something really amazing.

Since establishing Hoopstarz as its own brand Tracey and her dedicated team have worked with hundreds of primary schools, thousands of pupils and revolution-ised the way primary school teachers view the humble hula hoop.

The team’s mission is: “To provide an all-round, active and inclusive learning experience to increase self-esteem, independent play and fitness”  and so far over the years they have helped thousands of children achieve this!

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 are inclusive, adaptable and suitable for all ages they 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. There are skills and tricks to be mastered, games to be played and Hula Huts to be built making it a high energy, fun packed session.

The benefits of Hoopstarz to children and schools;

  • A fantastic cardio workout (addressing the rise in obesity)
  • A great child led activity which the children can use in school playground’s to help achieve their Active 30
  • Hoopstarz is not a dance event and is not a traditional fitness event; every child can take part, regardless of age or ability
  • Builds confidence and self esteem
  • The most difficult pupils to engage in PE can’t fail to enjoy it; we have seen this first hand time and time again
  • Children can easily carry on with the activities at home and often teach siblings and care givers; extending the reach of Hoopstarz into local communities

A few words from happy Hoopstarz...

“Cramlington School Sport Partnership have worked closely with Kidz R Fit for the past 4 years. Tracey and her team are enthusiastic, energetic and inspiring, but equally important they are always professional and reliable. Children across Cramlington have developed amazing hula hoop skills through in-school Hoopstarz Days and Hoopstarz Festivals for Y3 children. Children from Nursery to Y6 are fully engaged in the Hoopstarz sessions, with a perfect mix of hula hooping skills and tricks, and fun and imaginative games, and this format is enhanced further at the 2hr long festivals. This enthusiasm for hooping has led to an increase in physical activity in the playground, PE lessons and new extra-curricular clubs.”

 

Gill Smith - Cramlington School Sports Partnership

We had Hoopstarz in on Friday and WOW – What an amazing day! The workshops were outstanding and perfectly catered for the different ages and abilities of the children from Nursery to Year 6.

We were stunned to see the children learn and master the skills so quickly and the staff loved being able to join in and have fun with them. The biggest indicator of what a huge success this day was, were the children – laughing, smiling and desperate to buy their own hoop to take home and practice with over the weekend. Genuine impact in action!

I wholeheartedly recommend.

Louise Wiegand - Head - Springwell Village Primary School

Can we do this every day in school, cause this is awesome!

Tom - Age 7

This has been the best day ever!!

Katie - Age 6

This is better than football!

Kai - Age 9

I love hula hooping because it’s tiring but fun!

Hannah, Year 3 - Fellside Community Primary School

Our Hoopstarz day across the whole school was brilliant! Children haven’t had so much fun for ages. Loud music, dance skills, posture, all the while rotating a hoop – who could ask for more? It was like 1001 creative ways to use a hoop! I now see certain children in a new light, especially the children from our neighbouring Special School who surprised even themselves. If you can’t spin a hoop at the end of this day I’ll be astonished. Thank you so much to the team for bringing a mega PE experience into our school. Here’s to the next one.

Neil Richmond - Stobhillgate Primary

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.

Joe, Year 4 - Fellside Community Primary School

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!

David Mordue - Fellside Community Primary School

WOW!!!!! That word sums up our day and your staff! An absolutely fantastic day ran by such professionals! We have fantastic coaches visit our school all the time but your staff stood out as the best. I honestly can’t sing their praises enough! Fantastic attitude and professional visiting coaches in our school. They were engaging and fun – the children responded to them so well. The whole organisation of this day and leading up to it has worked so well. We have all enjoyed it and this is only the beginning of Shanklea Hula Hooping stars! I haven’t mastered it yet but I’m sure I will. Thank-you so much again.”
