WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Supporting children's sporting development
We believe that a life full of passion starts with sport. Sport teaches fair competition, self-discipline and perseverance in pursuit of goals. We inspire children with passion for sport and support their sporting development from an early age.
Activity through fun
Our exercise videos, daily challenges and sports knowledge quizzes encourage regular exercise. We have tailored them to age and fitness levels.
Rewarding regular activity
Commitment and regular activity translate into points. Every child, regardless of grade level, has a chance to earn rewards individually and for their school!
Support for schools
The materials are based on the recommendations of the International Health Organization, core curriculum and reliable knowledge of specialists in the field of sport. The platform can be an addition and variety to P.E. lessons, thus supporting schools and educational institutions.
Sharing activities with friends
We engage children in movement and encourage them to share this with their peers. Each child can be an inspiring example to their friends, inviting them to challenge themselves and be active together.
We believe that sport is a space that every child should have equal access to. The Pho3nix platform is completely free to support all children's activities and bridge social gaps.
With four world championships to his name, Chris “Macca” McCormack is one of the most successful athletes in the history of triathlon. The only male athlete to conquer every triathlon distance with World Championship gold, Macca is considered the most complete multisport athlete ever. He is also one of the most financially successful triathletes of all time. Macca’s charismatic personality both on and off the course made him a marketing and sponsor’s dream, but it was his wit and financial education that turned Macca into the most powerful brand in the history of his sport.
