Learn fundamental skills in our Junior Program
Our Active Kids Junior program is focused around Fundamental Skills relevant for children 5-8 years old. Our specially designed program focuses on themed days which will cover; throwing and catching, moving, bouncing, kicking and striking. Your child will have the opportunity for skill based sessions to learn about each of these skills, and opportunities to apply them in sport throughout the day.
Each day we start the program with a fun skill based session to learn about the fundamentals of the movement, and then throughout the day focus on that movement and apply the skills to a sport session relevant to the skill. After a fun day of learning, we finish the day with a swimming session!
We incorporate different sports each day and each sport is instructed by specialised Active Kids staff! Each session is tailored for the group of children, and created for all skill levels to take something away from each session. For certain activities, we engage with the Griffith Mt Gravatt Tennis Centre and the Nathan Fitness Centre to provide specialised sessions!
At the commencement of each day we provide parents with a daily email summary to let you know what we did each day and provide information about each sport we participated in! We welcome feedback on our program and the activities offered by emailing the Program Coordinator at email@example.com.
