All Fitnessworx kinder sport classes are highly unique, physical activity programs designed to teach new fundamental motor skills, test limits, refine sporting skills, build strength and most importantly…tire them out! Using “themes” to teach these physical competencies promotes excellent engagement and continued opportunities for success – keeping kids eager to add to their rapidly expanding repertoire of skills. Research is continuing to confirm that specialisation in a specific sport at an early age is not necessary for future success and can actually be highly negative, with large rates of participation drop off when kids enter their high school years.
At Fitnessworx, we teach a broad range of functional and fundamental skills during our kinder sport classes, from running (yep, running is learned, not innate!) and quadrupedal movement, hand eye tracking, object manipulation (throwing, catching, kicking) all the way through to strength. We love to see kids grow in confidence as they try new things and explore their personal limits. Their readiness to begin school is off the charts and we’ve had many parents comment to us that teachers often ask them – ‘What did you have your child doing prior to starting school?’
