Encouraging Children to be Active at Claremont Stadium

As you can see the children who took part in the sports program earlier in the year had fun. What you don’t see is how early they all appeared every Saturday to take part in the sports. The only complaint was made by a parent who said they were being woken early on Saturday mornings to make sure everyone arrived on time.

Connect Through Sports

Connect Through Sports ran from Saturday 9th March until Saturday 20th April. The purpose of the program was to encourage children (8yrs-12yrs) to take part in sports. Each Saturday morning they arrived with their parents to get a taste of a sport. The sports we featured were: Karma Yoga, Kenpo Karate, Athletics, Badminton, Hockey, Girl Guides/Boy Scouts (though not a sports, are an activity based club), Soccer, Gymnastics, and Dance.

As you can see from the photographs, they had fun, made new friends and some found a sport to explore further.

We would like to thank all of the coaches who gave up their Saturday mornings to share their knowledge with the group of just under 50 children.
