Not all exercises are suitable for everyone. Before participating in any new physical activity, we strongly recommend that you consult with a physician or other healthcare provider. As with any exercise program, if at any point during participating you begin to feel faint, dizzy, or have physical discomfort, you should stop immediately. You are responsible for participating within your limits and seeking medical advice and attention as appropriate. MRA and affiliates are not responsible for any injuries that result from participating in the activities shown for this event.
We chose "SHOW us your SKILLS" as our event name to highlight the importance of trying and developing new Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) regardless of skill level. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage you to participate, be YOUR best, set and achieve goals, and have FUN!
Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) are the building blocks for movement and they form the foundation for many of the specific motor skills required in leisure activities, sport, work, and life.
Furthermore, developing FMS is an important step towards establishing a life-long commitment to physical activity.
Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.
