Ready, Steady, Run!
The school holidays can be a good time to work on running and movement skills. Studies show us that gains are made at a much quicker pace when skills and motor patterns are practiced multiple times a week.
School holidays running skills workshop will be on again in the January school holidays. The program is aimed at children 7-12yrs who have not previously participated in weekly running groups. It is a fantastic way to introduce your child to activities which will improve their running ability and the agility skills needed to participate in field sports and playground games to their full potential. This workshop also serves as a great introduction to weekly running groups which occur during term and which your child may also wish to participate in.
With numbers strictly limits, spots will book up fast, however a second group may be added if demand is high, so please enquire now.
Dates: April School holidays TBC 2022

This is a brand new group which will provide social education in a fun environment, utilising role-playing games. The children (ages 8 and up) involved will take ownership of a character in a fantasy world, work in a team to overcome adversity and navigate their way to a successful outcome.
