Sportybots is fun and interactive and teaches children about fair play while introducing them to a variety of sports.
Children develop their mental and emotional attitudes toward sport from a young age and these feelings and thoughts will play a significant role in determining their attitude and participation levels in sport throughout their lives.
Sportybots helps children from a young age start to develop a healthy and active lifestyle that they will carry into adult life and pass on to future generations.
Our programs also assist in developing strong Gross Motor Skills which are the essential building blocks for many life skills. Children will enhance their skills in throwing, catching, skipping, running, hopping, hand-eye co-ordination, eye-foot co-ordination, hitting an object (bat and ball) and balance.
We allow children to develop at their own pace by gradually building on the skills learnt the previous week and provide revision of skills to enhance further understanding and skill development. Equipment used throughout the program is safe and is modified specifically for use by young children.
Programs also aid in number, colour and pattern recognition. Sportybots enhances their readiness for school by teaching about fair play, taking turns and following instructions.
Sportybots provides a platform for children to learn and try a variety of sports in a fun non competitive environment. Sports covered over the program include: Aussie Rules Football, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Cheerleading/Dance, Cricket, Golf, Hockey, Netball, Rugby, Soccer, Table Tennis, T-Ball (Baseball), Tennis,
Children learn two to three sports each term gradually building on the lessons learnt the previous week. Revision of skills at the end of each term is also a fundamental element of our program. Programs incorporate warm up, cool down and stretching games each week which teach children about correct exercise and physical activity behaviors.
