About Active Attitude

Active Attitude was established in 2007 and produced a children’s fitness DVD titled “Beat the Feet.”

Today, Active Attitude’s focus is on developing quality physical activity programmes to assist young people with leading an active lifestyle through recreational sport and fitness.

The three sports Active Attitude encourages are:

  • Gymnastics
  • Swimming
  • Athletics

These sports provide fantastic opportunities for children to acquire fundamental movement skills and provide great foundations for children wishing to go on and participate in other sports.

Health and Safety

Health & Safety

  • It is the parent’s responsibility to supervise the child at all times in the carpark.
  • No participant should use any equipment or be in a training area without the permission of a coach.
  • For safety reasons, non-enrolled children must remain off the gym floor.
  • If a student is, for any reason, asked to take time out of class for behaviour reasons, they will be asked to sit out all or part of the session in a safe location where they can be seen by the coach.
  • Parent interaction with coaches during session time, should be avoided unless necessary, so coaches can maintain the flow and focus of the class they are teaching.
  • No flash photography is permitted in case it distracts an athlete.

Health Considerations

  • Please keep children who are ill or contagious home until they have recovered.
  • Caregivers are expected to notify Active Attitude (either via e-mail or by making a note under medical conditions in their online profile) if a child has a health or physical condition that may require special care during their participation in our sessions.

Caring for our Gymnasium

  • Participants are expected to respect Active Attitude’s equipment and enviornment.
  • There is no eating permitted in the gymnasium other than the foyer area where the concrete floor is.
  • Clothes should not have buckles or zips that are exposed which could tear the mats or flooring.
