Situation

The programme will reach out to primary school children and raise their awareness of the benefits of physical activity on their well being, by encouraging them to take part in fun activity. They will record their heart rate and their feelings about the activity in personal log books so that the information can be collated and disseminated at the end of the project. We are currently engaged in a community based football development programme which attracts around 200,000 children attendances per annum. We will engage with around four hundred, 9 to 11 year old school children from sixteen primary schools and deliver fun football sessions, including warm ups, small sided games and warm downs and ask them to record their heart rates on hand held monitors and to record these and general comments in log books. We will collate the results and produce a report which will be disseminated amongst all interested parties at an event hosted in Ayr United’s Hospitality Suite. We need around £10,000 to fund Log books, Hand Held Monitors and Coaching and Football equipment costs. Then its £10,000 in the funds box, select Culture and Sport, Sport, Sport in Schools as first choice and and Health, Advice and Wellbeing as second choice. Its UK and Scotland for location.
