Junior sports - Mini Sports

Mini Sports is aimed at children aged between 3 and 4 years of age.

Mini Sports introduces children to a different sport each week, learning the new skills, rules and structure required to be able to participate in each of the sports.

At this age, children are in their early learning and development stage.  It's important to teach children that sport and being active can be lots of fun, and of the importance of practising many different skills and not just one!

The variety in sports allows children to use and develop their eye, hand, foot and ball coordination.

Each sport relates to a core motor development skill such as:

  • eye and hand - cricket
  • foot and ball - soccer
  • hand and ball - basketball
  • eye and foot - rugby
  • hand and foot - AFL.
Some of the other sports we include in our sessions are t-ball, athletics, hockey and many more.

Mini Sports also assists with children’s social development and encourages friendship and teamwork amongst participants.


About the program

Sessions run for approximately 45 minutes, once every week during the school term.

The sports for each term may vary depending on the term length and class.

Each term the skills for each sport will be taught in a different way allowing your child to develop their skills in a new and fun way.

The class structure is:

  • warm up game
  • 1 - 3 sport specific skills
  • a match/game
  • fruit time

At the end of each Mini Sport class we have fruit time which is proudly provided fresh every week by Vitality Cafe Highton.

During fruit time we all sit down and discuss the sport we just learnt and enjoy some healthy fruit together.

Sharing fruit each week teaches children that healthy foods can be delicious foods and shows that healthy sport goes hand in hand with healthy eating.
