Playball sports and movement programme

2019-02-06 06:01

PLAYBALL is a fun, structured, and active way of engaging children in physical activity at a young age. The scientifically researched curriculum provides a good platform for enhancing life skills and building a strong base for confident sport participation.

The programme progresses from a simple sport introduction to mini sport classes. Each age group’s curriculum covers an extensive range of sport-related skills that are pitched at the correct developmental level and constantly reviewed to ensure that the child develops at the right pace — physically, mentally and socially — in a fun, safe, and structured environment.

The Playball team created the programme by researching the developmental needs of two- to nine-year-olds through consultation with child development professionals — a consortium of professionals compromising teachers, physical therapists, sport coaches, occupational therapists, and sport scientists — to bring the most current and appropriate sports programme for the child. The action-packed lessons are limited to very small numbers to ensure maximum learning.

At Playball, we aim to guide every child to participate with confidence — then they will one day (when they are introduced to formal sport) compete with competence.

Playball is currently offered in the pre-primary phase at the following schools in our area:

Hermannsburg Deutsche Schule

Kammaland Primary

Tiny Tots Preschool

Wartburg Kirchdorf School

Wembley College
