We are first focusing our attention on launching Proludic’s Sports Legacy Zone concept and Olympians Steve Backley and Roger Black have been recruited as Proludic’s ‘Virtual Coaches’.
The pair will deliver an online virtual coaching programme which provides users with exercise routines, challenges and group games to be carried out on a range of play equipment.
Each session can be accessed at a Sports Legacy Zone by scanning QR codes, which smartphones can use to trigger virtual coaching videos that are available via the handset.
The coaching sessions are available for all ages and abilities, from entry-level participants, right through to providing expert tips and training programmes for sports coaches and teachers.
Users of the Sports Legacy Zone can get access to tips on individual pieces of apparatus or take part in challenges, games and even online competitions. They are also exposed to a wide range of skills and fitness techniques, such as climbing, traversing, balance and strength building.
The campaign will run during 2012 and will also include seminars, research papers and advice for local authorities, schools, and other organisations on how to fund new play areas.
