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.
