ACTIVE SPARKS has been created to help build children's confidence and physical competence when participating in physical activity and sports.
We currently have three main programmes (based at pre-schools and primary schools). All our programmes are designed to develop and improve children's motor skills, self-confidence, co-ordination and social skills, all with an big emphasis on FUN!
We believe in the motto 'ALL INVOLVED - ALL THE TIME!'

Our aim is to 'spark children's enthusiasm and love for being active and sporty!' .

As a parent of three active boys and both Physical Education teachers, I am passionate about getting children active and most importantly having them enjoy it! Experience tells us that it is vital that children have the opportunity to develop their fundamental skills at a young age and then experience a wide variety of sports that are game-based and engaging (not drill based and sports specific!). We strongly believe it 'ALL INVOLVED - ALL THE TIME!
We have created these programmes based on research and past experiences. These programmes are designed in-line with Sport NZ's Balance is Better framework, whilst being child-centred and educational. It is our aim to engage children in motivating, stimulating and progressive way, so that they can 'spark' with physical competence and confidence' and enjoy being active throughout their lives.
