What is Schoolaerobics?
Schoolaerobics is the largest inter-school Sportaerobic competition for Primary and Secondary School Students throughout Australia.
We have sections for Future Legends, Primary, Secondary and Old Skool (adults - where teachers, coaches and even parents can lead by example). Our event caters for the novice, intermediate and elite competitors from Regional events right through to National Championships.
Aim of Schoolaerobics
To provide Primary & Secondary School Students, and those beyond, with an avenue to improve their fitness, confidence, health and self esteem through participation in a healthy and fun competition.
If we can teach Australian kids that exercise, fitness, team spirit, self pride and fun should be a way of life, then we will be mighty proud that our Events gave them the opportunity to start such healthy practices at a young age!
History of Schoolaerobics
Schoolaerobics is a National competition, originally piloted in Victoria in 1989 when 23 teams competed for the inaugural Victorian State Title. Since that time the programme has grown to cater to over 900 school teams (more than 14,000 competitors) in all States and Territories. We are now into our 30th year, with athletes registered in every State/Territories throughout the country as we knuckle down to bring you another great year!
Is it FUN? Over 14 000 competitors say YES!
Give us a call at Head Office on 07 5470 2007 and we will send you out a Starters Package!
Sections are available for all ages and abilities whether you are just starting out or are an experienced choreographer or athlete.
Ask us about Stage 1, Stage 2 and Creative Stage for your school if you are not yet confident to choregraph your own routines. It is a great Starting Point and involves a 10 class lesson plan to teach the routine, a DVD to assist you teach and the music cut and ready to perform, along with your entry fee paid for one team at the State prelims or Spring Event.
Your Getting Started Package will help you with team selection, music, putting the team together, training, costumes and information about the pre-choreographed routines.
Rules & Guidelines
Please contact TFT Sport & Eventment Management Head Office on 07 5470 2007 for a copy of the current Rules and Guidelines
The official Rules and Guidelines and Entry Forms are released in late January each year and are sent out by email to all our registered Schools, Clubs and Coaches.
If you would like to be included on the mailing list, please email us via the "Contact Us" box on this website with your School / Club name, contact Coach / Coordinator, mailing address, phone and fax numbers. All current Coaches receive their Annual updates of the Rules on November 26 each year, along with the proposed dates for all Events, to assist with preparation of new teams for the coming year.
TFT Sports & Event Management's policy, in line with our philosophy, is to assist our kids and athletes to enjoy their performance and competition by increasing self esteem, confidence, fitness and a love for improving their abilities and developing their skills over the years they are involved in the world of Schoolaerobics and beyond.
During each Event, the Results are announced on stage and posted backstage following Presentations. Within one week of the Event, regardless of where you live in Australia, the Coaches will receive a full breakup of how the score was attained, a comparative sheet showing other teams total scores, and feedback (at prelims and Spring Challenges). Those results, along with the Rules and Guidelines and the Coaches own expertise, will allow the kids to understand their placing and scores.
When the results become mere numbers on a website, we feel the lesson and importance of performance can be lost and in the end that is in conflict with what we want the kids to gain from their Schoolaerobics experience. So our policy is to leave the discussion of who scored what and why, to the experienced coaches and allow the kids and parents to utilize the website for fun, memories and reference.
Each year we will update photos, tributes, stories, acknowledgement of our National Gold, Silver and Bronze Medalists, anecdotes of fabulous coaches / kids / schools and supporters and favourite moments.
We thank you for your interest in how our Results system works and hope you will share our philosophy of participation, winning with a smile and humility, placing with dignity and being proud of where you came, no matter what that result, with your children, School and Clubs.
In the end, they are all winners….that is what we believe, and feel they need to know!
Welcome to Schoolaerobics - an exciting and innovative concept created more than thirty years ago, bringing together schools, kids, parents, coaches, teachers, clubs, and families in fun and healthy events throughout Australia!
