Health Squad

Welcome to the Health Squad!

Health Squad is a six-week programme aimed at engaging and empowering children, from Years 5 and 6, with the knowledge, skill and understanding to make positive lifestyle decisions.

 Alongside the engaging and interactive classroom lessons - which come complete with advice and thoughts from Bristol Flyers players - are the practical basketball sessions, led by a level two qualified basketball coach.

What do we teach?

The theory side has been designed to link in with the National Curriculum and covers areas such as food and diet, emotional and mental well-being and the importance of activity, whilst the practical element ensures that the subject is taught with a view to improving both knowledge and physical ability.

Why is this programme important?

We spoke to the players to find out why the lessons delivered during the Health Squad programme are important. Find out what they thought in the short video below 👇
