☆ OUR STORY ☆
As parents of three active boys and both Physical Education teachers, We are 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 children active 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 programmes, so that they can 'spark' with physical competence and confidence,
