Attached please find the breathing exercise we would like the children to perform on a daily basis, with your encouragement and assistance. It is a very simple exercise which aims to help the children improve their breathing techniques and quicken their muscle recovery during effort. This will benefit the children in all their sporting activities not just athletics.
As you can appreciate, one hour a week is a very short time to try and incorporate all the techniques and exercises which will benefit your child’s athletic experience, so over time we will be handing out more home activites and would appreciate your assistance in encouraging the children to perform them. It might even be a time when all the family take time out to do the exercises together. We would also appreciate your feedback on the exercises and how your child manages with them.
Although aimed at the Astro group, these exercises would benefit all our young athletes (and families).
