Athlete Coaching Visits
Learning and growing in sport.
Takeoff Schools provides elite athlete coaching experiences and interactions for students. Takeoff aims to support the development of learning to go along with the ability to move correctly and safely in sport.
Inspiring the next generation
With the London World Championships and Rio Olympics still fresh in memory, Takeoff Schools aims to retain and re-inspire the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games and the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. With most of our athletes on a journey themselves, either having been to a games or looking to qualify for the next, Takeoff wants to show pupils what is special about being an elite athlete.
The Big 5
Building character and lifestyle management is broken down by our athletes in the presentation/assembly into 5 areas: Lifestyle, fatigue, relationships, time, home & school. All of these are then broken down into their own 3 individual categories. The athlete will relate all of these to their sport and personal life to show how what they do shapes their character.
Your school may choose the athlete to talk around 3 of the 5 areas that may run inline with current themes. We hope that this can inspire the students more to pick up good lifestyle habits.
Assembly Presentations - 20/30 minute motivational talk followed by a structured Q&A.
Half day elite inspiring coaching visit - Morning or afternoon - Athlete assembly presentation followed by taster coaching sessions.
Full day elite inspiring athlete coaching visit - Athlete assembly presentation followed by taster coaching sessions throughout the school day.
