GRASSROOTS (RUN JUMP THROW WHEEL, GRADE 2-6)
Run Jump Throw Wheel (RJTW), the grassroots development program for our sport, is designed to introduce children ages 7-12 to the FUNdamentals of running, jumping, and throwing skills using age appropriate sequential progressions. RJTW builds physical literacy transferable to other sports and activities, and promotes a fun, safe, and active learning environment for children. Each RJTW lesson is generally 30-45 minutes for an average group size of 30 children; can be held indoor or outdoors; and equipment is provided (RJTW bag). RJTW can also be adapted for children with special needs. Two clinicians are recommended to conduct a successful RJTW clinic.
MIDDLE YEARS (GRADE 7-8) / HIGH SCHOOL (GRADE 9-12)
These clinics are designed for the developmental athletes wishing to gain knowledge in specific event areas. Saskatchewan Athletics’ clinicians are experienced and prepared to teach and demonstrate the necessary skills across event areas including sprints, hurdles, relays, vertical & horizontal jumps, javelin, shot put, discus and distance running. Instruction can be covered in a half day format (under 4 hours) or full day format (9:00am-5:00pm). Clinics can be booked for a one-time visit or repeat visits and can be held indoors or outdoors. The number of clinicians depends on events areas or number of students (large number of students = more clinicians, more events areas = more clinicians).
