Our Coaching Philosophy.
Our sessions have been developed to encourage the children to explore and develop a wide range of skills which include; eye/hand coordination, gross motor skills, balance and coordination, health and fitness and an understanding of body and movement.
The program also encourages social interaction, self confidence and a sense of team spirit whilst in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Children are able to develop their abilities in a way that is challenging, fun and successful with each child achieving at their own pace. Classes are kept small to help facilitate this.
Our classes are designed to offer our students a systematic and sequential program, offering all players the opportunity to cultivate their game to reach their full potential. Through out each stage you will be able to see the pathway need to to make future improvement a development.
As each student progress, opportunities to enhance their performance through squad training. internal match play and club competition is available to all.
