Tough Monkees is the Movement Evolution Scotland Movement Literacy Programme for Primary school age children.  It forms the foundation and backbone to all of what we do at Movement Evolution Scotland.  We believe strongly that all children and young people should have the necessary physical capabilities and movement skills to participate in many different sports and physical activities and in turn live a healthy life.

We primarily deliver the Tough Monkees Movement Literacy Programme through regular Tough Monkees classes at The Movement Bothy and through the Pop Up Tough Monkees Obstacle Courses throughout the North East of Scotland.
