This 10 month program is split into three categories and includes the Fitness Squad, the Community Compassion Program and the Passion Kids program.
THE FITNESS SQUAD TRAINING PROGRAM:
This program is designed to instill principles & values within the leaders of the Fitness Squad through the catalyst of Fitness.
They are essentially trained to become fitness instructors, but tasked with the responsibility of identifying physically talented children through our Passion Kids Program and training elderly members of their community through the Community Compassion Program.
COMMUNITY COMPASSION PROGRAM:
Lead by myself & assisted by the Fitness Squad, we guide the community members of Bloekombos through a fun to do program that promotes the prevention of disease, improved mental health, decreased risk of falls, social engagement and improved cognitive function.
PASSION KIDS PROGRAM:
This program is designed to identify physically talented children within an impoverished community.
Once we identify the child we provide an opportunity for them to pursue a role in sports.
