Sportball?

Postby SBKS » Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:22 pm

Hi, anyone had their kids in sportball programmes?

www.sportball.com.sg

I am not sure if its good for my DDs. Are they like rough or are they loose play?

how do they conduct their lessons?

thanks in advance.

my lil piggy's kindy had this incorporated into their school curriculum. they have sportball once a week.

afaik, basically, there's a coach each week specialising in a sport, eg. hockey, etc. they'll provide a soften version of the hockey stick, goal post, balls, etc and will teach the children on the rules of the game and basic maneuvres.

i won't consider the lessons as rough, nor as loose play, in fact, i think the coaches handle the kids really well and for the whole year, no "accidents". my lil piggy always looked forward to sportball day.

I see. thanks icy_mama.

from what i understand they are actually trying to teach the kids on sportsmanship thru sports. (DUH!) :rotflmao:

So just wanted to find out if its really working on the kids.

something like that. :wink:

for my lil piggy, she's the princessy kind who don't want to get her hair messy, so not really working for her. :laugh:

but fun, definitely, yes.

My kids joined their holiday programs before. They've got great coaches! We had a Sportball birthday party too when my DS1 was 6! Excellent! Really fun for all the kids!
