THIS IS MOVEMENT
Movement Evolution Scotland CIC is a not for profit organisation with three key social objectives. These are:
to increase participation in ‘free spirit’ sports and physical activities in Grampian;
to improve the health and wellbeing of the Grampian population and beyond; and
to close the attainment gap in the Grampian area through physical activity and ‘free spirit’ sports.
We are determined to ensure that children have the opportunity to access quality movement education and a variety of sports which will encourage them to discover a lifelong love of physical activity.
By creating environments which promote learning through fun and freedom, young people can develop their athletic ability and grow to become socially skilled, confident, healthy individuals.
MISS FITS ACTIVITY SESSIONS
We are proud to launch our first MISS FITS Activity Sessions, these "Pop Up" activities are for girls and women in our Trail Blazers age group (P7+) and older (we have no upper age limit for these sessions), who are looking to be active, and try new sports and activities with like minded girls in a friendly, and encouraging environment.
Our first ever MISS FITS Activity Session, will be a MISS FITS "Get ready for Winter" Afternoon, at Duthie Park, Aberdeen on Sunday 24th October. It will combine a taster session of Rollerskiing with some classic MISS FITS movement games and fitness fun to get you ready for Snowsports this Winter. This session will introduce you to the sport of Rollerskiing teaching you the basics of stance, balance, skating and turning. Led by a qualified, and experienced coaches.
