Sporting Schools is open for Term 1, 2019 and we are ready to go!

We are very lucky to be partnered with both Tennis Australia and Golf Australia to assist in delivering programs for the Sporting Schools programme here in Melbourne. Our team of trained coaches can provide both the ANZ Tennis Hotshots program as well as the Golf Australia MyGolf program. Through the partnership, students are given free access to sport which is a fantastic initiative of the federal government and Sport Australia. 

If you are a school and interested in finding out more about these programs, please get in contact with us today at info@fitforkidsco.com.au 

Here is a little look at the various programs:

Summer Sports Incursions with Fit For Kids Co.

Are you getting ready to start planning your summer incursions? Over the summer months many children will spend a large large amount of time in OSHC as mum, dad or guardians return to work. So what can you do to give them more activity during the school holidays? 

Here at Fit For Kids Co, we offer a range of fun and active incursions for primary aged children. Our incursions are all based around sport and fitness themes and provide programs with a one or two hour break from looking after their groups.

This year the team will be running the following programs;


Australian Open Tennis Incursion. 
To celebrate the summer of tennis here in Australia and Melbourne specifically, we will be offering our popular tennis incursion. The incursion uses the ANZ Tennis Hotshots equipment consisting of small nets, softer balls and junior sized racquets. Students will get the chance to experience the sport, learn the various techniques and also play fun tennis games.


Summer Soccer Stars.
Summer soccer stars is our fun and inclusive soccer skills clinic for children aged 5 - 12 years of age. During the incursion the students will learn all the soccer fundamentals as well as participate in a large group game with their peers. Our soccer incursion is always a big success as it is a game that can be played by all. 


Big Hitter Cricket.

Big Hitter Cricket is our cricket incursion which we offer over the balmy summer months. Get the group out of the indoors and out onto the field for an hour of cricket skills and classic catches. The students will get a chance to bat, bowl field and learn the basics of this fantastic summer sport. 


Splash Time Fun.
If the sun is out, then this is the incursion for summer! Splash Time Fun is all about water & fun. Think water pistols, water races, water fights and more. If you are looking to mix it up this summer, Splash Time Fun is your incursion. 


So, ready to book one of our epic incursions for your summer program? Hit us up today at info@fitforkidsco.com.au 

See you out there.

Another success story from the 'This Girl Can' campaign

This Girl Can is a campaign that has allowed girls and women to get more involved in sport and also share their sporting or fitness stories. This week the campaign looked back on it's last 12 months at how far it has come. Through this reflection, a number of stories from women around the country have emerged and we have been facinated to learn about the impact that sport has had on so many girls. 

Below is the story of Kate. Kate is deaf and has found sport to be a domain where she can play and compete whilst being herself.

We hope these stories inspire and uplift you as much as they do us.

Enjoy.

This Girl Can - One Year On

One year on from the launch of VicHealth's successful 'This Girl Can' campaign, its clear to see the impact on girls and women around the country. The campaign is no longer simply a campaign but instead a fully fledged movement! Girls are getting involved and are getting active, but there are still some challenges to overcome. The three biggest challenges girls still face are: 

1. Appearance
- Fear of not looking the part or dressing the part 

2. Ability
- Fear of judgment around their skills 

3. Priorities
- Feeling guilty or selfish for doing something for themselves

But with the help of the program and a changing conversation, we believe we can change this and ensure women / girls stay fit, active and engaged in sport for life.
