The KICKSTART philosophy is built on the understanding that children love to have fun and love getting better at whatever they are doing. Once they feel they are gaining success and having fun at the same time they want to keep coming back and subsequently then gain further success. If children are taught to complete a skill correctly at the start then they will practice the correct skill in the backyard or in the park or even in the house (if they can get away with it). This Snowball Effect brings a stronger skill level, which:
- Encourages more play
- Improves confidence
- Leads to future success
The momentum will then keep on building upon itself – The SNOWBALL effect.

Created to develop the gross motor skills, coordination and fundamental skills in children from 2 to 5 years old. This program offers the opportunity to put your child in contact with 9 different sports (ie. soccer, basketball, cricket, rugby, AFL, baseball, hockey, gymnastics and tennis) in a very fun and friendly approach. We go through all the skills associated within these sports as well as how to play the game, which is so important for them when they move into the primary school environment. The program also helps the children to develop their capability to listen and follow instructions which are so important in the school years as well. Our dynamic, fun and maximum participation environment gives them the best chance to get the most out of their time in our sessions. Come and see why so many parents say “My kids just Love it!”.
This program is designed for children from 4 to 7 years olds who want to either learn to play rugby from the start or who want to be further developed in their abilities in the sport. Through our qualified FULL TIME staff and highly experienced Rugby staff we have developed a program which takes the children through all the components of the game in such a way that they will experience it in a fun and developmental environment . This allows them not only to progress physically as a player but to think and build strategies in how to maximize their impact when they do come on the field. Our technical development in their tackling means that when they play the sport for a team they are far less likely to be injured. Our dynamic skill oriented training is the only way to really develop a players ability to enjoy the game. Come and see why so many parents say “My kids just love it!”
