The PhysiFun concept encourages exercise and strengthening for children. PhysiFun-trained healthcare professional therapists run exercise classes in their local communities, as well as teaching evidence based training courses for teachers, PE & sports coaches; and parents, thus creating a valuable link between schools and therapists in a day to day school setting. Contact your local Physifun-trained healthcare professional for more information.
Are you a parent? Physifun has trained physiotherapists and OTs from all over South Africa who can provide your child with a fun strengthening and exercise class, with the additional bonus of them being an HPCSA registered healthcare professional who would have undergone excellent university training in child development. Look on our contact page and find your local healthcare professional who is running an exercise class. Alternatively you can speak to them about training up your child’s teachers at your local school.
Are you a teacher or coach affiliated to a school? The training courses are designed to help teachers maximise children’s developmental skills in the classroom and on the playing field. The gross motor programmes can be run by teaching staff as an after-school or breakfast club activity, for 20-30 minutes, once or twice a week. Alternatively, the PhysiFun exercises can be incorporated into the classroom setting and used as movement breaks and concentration-enhancers.
Physifun’s teacher training workshops help teachers manage children who have behavioural difficulties, as well as gross and fine movement difficulties in an evidence-based tried-and-tested way. Teachers will walk away from the workshops with easy-to-implement strategies for the classroom which will help to improve the writing, learning and physical skills of the children in their class.
The PhysiFun ethos
The Physifun Ethos is to promote movement and exercise within school environments in order to improve better functioning of children in learning, writing, concentration, sports skills, playground play and prevent injury in sporting activites.
