Rookie Sports

Multi Sports Program designed for 3 - 5 year olds

Rookie Sports is a term based program suited to 3-5 year olds that allows them to burn off their energy while learning new skills.

  • Soft Tennis: Serving, hand eye coordination, hitting, bouncing and agility
  • Soccer (Futsal): Foot eye coordination, basic dribbling/shooting, agility, speed, balance and body control

  • Athletics: Agility, strength, speed and balance

All of our Rookie Sport sessions are run by a sports coach, who will support the children as they progress their skills and develop a  love for a range of different sports. Many friendships will be made and lots of fun will be had in a safe environment, whilst learning a wide range of new sporting skills.

Parent assistance is not required in this program.
