There are four building blocks which are fundamentally essential for all sports. By introducing and developing these components participants will have the skills and understanding which will kick start their life long sporting journey.
Throw and Catch
This module develops a wide variety of throwing, rolling & bouncing activities using a variety of developmentally appropriate balls and equipment designed to challenge and stimulate the children’s coordination. Activities and session plans are designed to improve confidence in all areas of children’s throwing and catching abilities.
Balance and Control
Here children focus on activities to build balance and control in a number of uniquely designed activities designed to stimulate the vestibular system.
They will practice skills such as balancing on beams, manipulating their way through tunnels & using numerous different obstacles to improve spatial awareness, depth perception, awareness of others, their environment, balance and coordination.
Our aim is to build confidence and develop skills that will form the foundation for future success.
Movement and Coordination
Learning correct movement patterns and techniques are vitally important for future success. In this unit children will combine aspects from the other three units to build and develop fundamental movement patterns and suitable actions for performing sports related tasks.
Children will build confidence in areas such as running, walking, skipping, jumping, bouncing, crawling and even dancing.
Using External Objects
Children explore different activities using objects that are external from the body. We incorporate a number of common sporting apparatus such as tennis racquets, hockey sticks, T-ball and large balls.
This module aims to build confidence in using this equipment by developing perception skills such as tracking, speed/timing, depth and hand-eye coordination. The understanding and ability to perform these skills and techniques are required in all sports where striking is required (tennis, golf, cricket, football etc).
