The Sporting Schools Program gets further funding in Federal Budget 2020

 

As of the recent Australian Federal Budget (October 2020) The national sporting body Sport Australia have welcomed the Australian Government’s $39.6 million commitment for an additional calendar year of funding for the Sporting Schools program. This means that children across the country will get access to FREE Sport thanks to the government and with help from schools and sports coaching providers. 

Sport Australia Chair John Wylie said the funding will ensure even more children across Australia can get active, engaged and have fun through sport.

Sporting Schools programs are provided free to children and their families to help students build the confidence and capability to be active for life,” Mr Wylie said. “Since starting in 2015, Sporting Schools has distributed $240 million in grants to more than 7,900 schools.

“We know children need 60 minutes of physical activity a day so the Sporting Schools program is a fantastic way for children to get active at school while trying a variety of different sports.”

 


Our Sporing Schools Program


We are proud to be part of the programme through both our Tennis Australia Hot Shot affiliation, as well as our MyGolf programme through Golf Australia.

Whilst the future is certainly a little uncertain at the moment here in Melbourne Victoria, we can't wait to get back out on the court, field, oval or stadium to play & coach once again.

To all of our patience parents and kids, we look forward to seeing you back soon!

ZoomFit Launches today

Happy barefoot

 

Today we launched our first ever ZoomFit Online class.

The class ran online via Zoom and was a short and sharp 25 minute class designed to get kids moving and give parents & guardians a well earned break.

The class was run by one of our senior coaches Emily who usually specialises in tennis, netball & active morning programmes during the school term. Emily is now turning her hand at our online classes and the kids had an absolute ball.


The highlight was probably the Taylor Swift Shake It Off dance off at the end!

If you are interested in finding out more about our online classes, get in touch with our friendly team today!

We will be bringing more online and interactive workouts to your living room shortly.

tennis drills for home


If you are anything like us here at Fit For Kids Co. you are surely missing being out on the court and getting in that quality tennis time! If you are missing it, we thought we would put together some videos from home and aproad to help you keep that eye in and maintain your skills for when the courts re-open in the not so distant future (fingers crossed).


If you are finding ways to play at home, we would love to hear from you and share them with our community. Email us at info@fitforkidsco.com.au with your videos!

Isolation Ideas Part 1

Now that a return to school in Term 2, 2020 for Melbourne is looking highly unlikely, we thought we would begin to help parents and teachers with their at home programs and care-taking. Having kids work and study from home will not be easy and it will be important for parents to ensure they are getting adequate exercise and exertion in order to keep concentration, sleep and other factors optimal. 

For this reason, we thought we would provide you with some really great at home programs which you can do that are 100% free.

Below you will find videos that we have researched and that we think will be great for you and your little ones at home.

 

Enjoy.

 

 

We hope you found these helpful for you and your kids, we will be back with more videos over the coming weeks here at: www.fitforkidsco.com.au
