Giving every child the confidence to experience swim, bike, run.

Active Skills for Life uses swim, bike, run to combine playing and learning to teach children aged 7-14 essential skills that can be used in all aspects of life.

Promoting community and class-based activity, the programme gives children of all abilities the encouragement, skills, confidence and opportunities to live active and healthy lives through active play. 

Active Skills for Life resources offer a unique blend of playfulness and educational depth. The resources are carefully crafted to complement the National Curriculum, making it easier for educators to seamlessly integrate active play into their teaching plans.

Unlock boundless possibilities for children with Active Skills for Life – a dynamic initiative empowering young minds through the exciting realms of swim, bike, and run activities.
