The Captain's Challenge has been developed to assist Kindergarten to Grade 2 students around Tasmania in achieving 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity activity on most days of the week as outlined in the Australian Physical Activity Guidelines.
The Captain’s Challenge achieves this by spending 10 minutes a day developing fundamental motor skills that will assist them in remaining physically active later in life.
As part of the challenge, each day participants will undertake activities designed to challenge them at their own pace in a fun, participation based environment. To measure their development, each activity has a target that must be achieved before they can move onto the next activity. Participants will be able to track their progress each day on the class tally board.
There are also four easy to follow activity cards and posters that show each week’s activities plus a large tally board for participating classrooms.
