Saturday Sports Club: Fun based sports activities for 4 to 6 year old boys

 

Saturday mornings sees the re-launch of a new junior sports programme at the Freeport Rugby Football Club, The Saturday Sports Club.

The programme is for    young boys aged four to six and:

  • Aims      to establish    a ‘play  group’       atmosphere  for  youngsters ( and   adults)
  • Where      the  child  can learn and develop physical  skills such as running , jumping ,      hopping , throwing and  kicking
  • And  where, in addition, the  boy can practice important  social skills such as teamwork,      sharing  and  sportsmanship

The big  difference in this  programme however  is that it is boys’  parents and  guardians who  will take an active  role in developing  their  child   in these areas  rather  than a coach. We recognize that especially during their early years, the best role model for a young child is their parents, grand parents or older siblings and family members. Accordingly this programme looks to embrace this by asking that such a figure both accompanies and actively interacts with the child each week.

Organizer Mark Hardy says the plan is to run a series of activities at numerous ‘play stations’ each week, at   which the young boys explore along with their adult companion. These stations will vary from running and jumping to throwing, catching or kicking a ball. In addition a number of games will be played which will also supplement the learning process whilst the boys continue to have fun.

As a result of these games and activities, it is hoped that the youngsters will learn the fundamentals of many team sports as well as the concept of fair play and team work etc.

The programme runs  every Saturday morning and is  expected to last approximately  one  hour each week , depending upon  the  attention span of the  youngsters !!  Interested persons can either contact Freeport Rugby Football Club or go to Saturday Sports Club on Facebook to see more details. Places  will be limited to  approximately  one  dozen to fifteen boys as the  organizers wish to  limit the  numbers to ensure    a  friendly, intimate atmosphere where the boys can have  easy access to multiple  balls, hoops  etc.

Cost of the programme is $25 per child or is included as part of Freeport Rugby Football Club’s family membership programme package.

Boys and adults should wear tennis/training   shoes and PE/sports uniform.
