Providing kids with a sports & recreation taster
Based on parent input sKids Active aims to provide kids with a taster of sports/recreation codes so they can discover what they enjoy/don’t enjoy. Kids can then participate in a code of their choosing, reducing the financial burden on parents enrolling their child/ren in a first time After School sport only to find out half way through the term, their child is not enjoying it.
- Each programme introduces children to a particular sport/recreation code, followed by several weeks/term of practicing the skills for the sport/recreation code
- An exciting range of sports and recreation activities covered including mainstream team sports like Netball & Touch, as well as less mainstream, but just as exciting Orienteering, Flying Disc and Obstacle Courses
- Programmes cater for all ages, skill levels and weather conditions
sKids Active is offered as part of sKids After School and Holiday Programmes, however it can easily be run as part of PE/HEALTH parts of the New Zealand National Curriculum.
