Here at Active Attitude we have the following academies:

Aerobic Gymnastics Academy

Trampoline Academy

Tumbling Academy

What are academies?  An academy is the name we have given our competitive programme here at Active Attitude.  In sports, academies are often seen as a selective programme for those athletes that have been scouted.  Here at Active Attitude we believe every competitive member has the potential to do amazing things in sport and being part of our academy means that we provide you with extra opportunities within our programmes to become a great person and the best athlete you can be.

Academy Captains

Jayden Lambert (Trampoline Captain 2019)

Caitlin Leathem (Tumbling Captain 2019)

Brooke Foster (Aerobics Captain 2019)

Brooke Foster (Aerobics): Bubbly and motivated, but also serious when she knows something needs to be done.  Brooke likes to be ready and enjoys leading a team.

Caitlin Leathem (Tumble): A very supportive and encouraging team player.  She is determined and willing to give everything a go.  She sets SMART Goals and encourages others to do the same.

Jayden Lambert (Trampoline): He is determined and willing to have a laugh at the right time.  Jayden is observant and daring, and is looking forward to encouraging his team.

Academy Advantage Sessions

Here at Active Attitude we hold an Academy Advantage session each month.  These sessions are optional and are available to all our academy members (ages 10-18).  There are different topics and presenters each month, to provide our members with extra opportunities to grow as people and athletes through shared experiences.  There is no set charge for these sessions, however we do ask that athletes show they value these sessions by providing a donation to a different charity or cause at each session.  Our Captains and Academy Team Leaders make a collective decision on what causes and charities to support each month.

Our next session will be Sunday 18th August 3-4:30 PM at Active Attitude.

Presenter: Tania Kahika-Foote from Strength and Soul.

Donations to: Starship

Session Topic: Sports Massage

Massage is one of the oldest forms of healing. It is a practice that has been used as a traditional healing modality by many cultures throughout the world. With the competition session in full swing, athletes are busier than ever preparing for competitions. Balancing training and looking after their body is paramount to doing well. Tania will be presenting some simple massage tips and strategies to help assist athletes with healing their body. She has worked with national and international athletes and one of her highlights is being part of the massage crew for 15 and counting at the NZ Ironman championships.

All athletes in our Aerobics, Trampoline and Tumbling Academies are welcome to attend these sessions.  Please use our online booking system to register.  Parents – you are also welcome to sit in on this session.
