Freestyle Now BMX stunt shows – Carine High School presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

 

 

Freestyle Now attended the Carine Senior High School for a full day of motivational presentations. The presentations focused on resilience, something all BMX riders will know. Achieving goals is challenging, you have to be focused. There are many hurdles and barriers that can slow you down from achieving your goals, be it with BMX tricks or just in life achievements. You need to know how to jump over the hurdles and push through the barriers. Throughout the course of the day Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Luke Tooze and Josh Garwood not only did some BMX stunt riding but also spoke of their personal barriers they had to overcome with injuries to keep on achieving their goal. Determination is what is required to achieve and each person has a different level of determination, but it’s their determination and they own it. Each person tackles achieving goals differently, and it’s how to go about pushing yourself to reach them goals that creates your resilience. All of these things BMX teaches you.

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now attended the Mindarie Collage for a school assembly presentation as part of R U OK day. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Josh Garwood and Luke Tooze were at the school to roll out the rad.. The presentations main focus was to talk about mental health. Due to the rain on the day the set up took place in the undercover area. Just before the lunch break the secondary school students got a chance to come and watch the BMX show. The BMX riders performed some great BMX stunts and tricks that the students were super hyped with. In the middle of the presentation Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis took to the microphone to talk about the importance of speaking and listening about mental health. It is important to speak about how you are feeling but it is also just as important to listen when someone is not feeling mentally well. When your friend or family member talks to you about how they are feeling it does not always mean you need to fix their problems. Sometimes just speaking to someone who is listening helps. Please remember to ask people R U OK if you can see a change in their mannerisms. Sometimes all it takes to help someone is to ask R U OK.

The more effort you put in the bigger the rewards

Freestyle Now attended the Embelton primary school for a school assembly presentation as part of a reading reward program they had running at the school. The day before the school assembly presentation Freestyle Now hosted a coaching session at the school for skateboard, scooter and bmx participants. In the presentation we spoke about how putting in the effort you are able to achieve the rewards and bmx riding is just one example of this. You cannot get good at bmx freestyle riding if you don’t put in the effort. The more effort the bigger the reward. Main Freestyle Now presenter Shaun Jarvis  also spoke about the act of kindness and that how being kind has its own reward, others being kind to you. Freestyle Now squad member Luke Tooze was on hand to throw down some of his radness as well as good friend Daniel Davis. The school students love it and got super excited when Principle Walker sat on top of the ramp and got jumped over.

Freestyle Now – Tapping Primary school – School assembly presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now was invited to attend the Tapping primary school to host a school assembly presentation. The focus of the presentation was around the importance of safety equipment. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis , Luke Tooze and Josh Garwood invited Kieran Ramsey to come and roll out the rad with them to Tapping primary school. It was a hectic morning as we had set up on the basket ball courts and about to start the first presentation when it started to rain. We packed down the ramp and airbag lander and moved it into the inside location to escape the rain. Once set up inside there was no more rain for the day, but we knew that would happen. We had a smaller set up with no platform on the ramp, but the Freestyle Now squad did not let that slow them down. Freestyle Now put on two presentations for the students over the day. School shows are always the loudest and Tapping primary did not disappoint. The message we gave about safety was well received by the students.

RU OK day – Freestyle Now school assembly presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

RU OK day is a great initiative that encourages people to meaningfully connect and support those struggling with life through conversation. Its ok to ask someone RU OK, sometimes that’s all it takes to help someone out of a bad situation. We all have got the ability to make a difference if we care to ask, listen, and just regularly look after each other.

Freestyle Now headed to the Waroona school once again to do a school assembly presentation based around RU OK day. It was the fourth time that Freestyle Now has attended the school for such a presentation. Freestyle Now moved the ramps into the undercover location due to the rain and proceeded to roll out the rad with a great positive message.

Freestyle Now can come to your school and bring a great positive message to the students using the medium of bmx, scooter and skateboard radness.

Contact Freestyle Now for more information

Squad members Shaun Jarvis and Tyler Jennings also invited good friend Luke Tooze along to bring the message of positivity to the students during the school assembly presentation. Shaun spoke about the importance looking out for each other, as the signs of depression and mental illness are not always seen like other illnesses and sickness. He also spoke about how it’s the small things that you do that can have a large impact on other people’s lives and you would not know the importance that has played in that person’s life. The presentation was well received by all the students from all the grades. Question time followed after the presentation with the students asking many questions about riding and life in general, which was great to see.

 

Some of the action that went down on the day, the students loved it as you can tell with the amount of noise they were making.

Freestyle Now – Comet Bay College – school assembly presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

When you put in the effort you get to see the reward.

Ben Thomas and Dylan Schmidt put in the effort to get this double flair for the year 9’s at Comet Bay College.

Freestyle Now was invited to attend the Comet Bay College and host a school assembly presentation. The focus of the presentation was “E for effort” Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Dylan Schmidt and Ben Thomas and recruits squad member Karee Funeyvall were also joined by good friend Brendon Cross to show the students how putting in effort into your life can give you positive rewards. Being involved in BMX, Scooter and skateboarding required you to put in effort to learn new tricks. Sometimes these tricks can be an easy learn and not requiring too much effort and sometimes the tricks require so much effort to reach the goal of achievement. Landing a new trick after putting in so much effort is an amazing feeling. Learning new tricks and putting in effort is the same principle in all parts of your life. If you want something you need to put in the effort to get the reward.

Freestyle Now did four sessions, each to the years 7, 8, 9 and 10. During the school assembly presentation Freestyle Now performed lots of different BMX, scooter and skateboard tricks on the portable Freestyle Now ramps. Then at the mid way point Shaun Jarvis spoke to the students about how putting in effort give you the rewards you are seeking. Shaun also spoke about how putting effort into being kind has lots of positive effects to help have a kinder more accepting world. Some people don’t put effort into relating to other people which is a shame. Treating others with courtesy and respect also take effort. The students were encouraged to ask questions, with Shaun and the other Freestyle Now riders giving back some great answers on why they got into skateboarding, scooters and BMX. After discussion time it was back to rolling out the rad and letting the students see how putting in the effort in gets you the rewards you are seeking.

During the day there was a free period after lunch where a select number of students got to interact with the Freestyle now riders in a more personal way, hanging out, talking about life experience and how their efforts have given them rewards like contest success, international travel and great life memories. Positive role models with a positive message.

The Freestyle Now team came to Comet Bay College to present at our Year Group Assemblies, doing both a stunt show and a presentation.  Their presentation tapped into the school’s key message for Term 2, ‘E for Effort’, and the professional BMX, skateboard and scooter riders showcased many impressive skills to students.  Shaun Jarvis did an excellent job of connecting with and engaging our students. We appreciated Freestyle Now’s flexibility, professionalism and ability to deliver a key school message in a fresh and unique way.  The Freestyle Now team were also more than willing to talk with students during recess and lunch, and feedback from both staff and students about the event was overwhelmingly positive.  All students left the presentation with the message that working hard, whilst considering others, is the key to achieving dreams.
