It’s well known that the earlier kids are introduced to sport, the more likely they are to make physical activity a lifelong habit, and unlike other childhood habits (hello chocolate buttons!), this one is to be encouraged!
That’s why we were keen to hear more about SPRING’s brand new Supersport programme for kids from walking to 3 years. With exposure to more than 15 different sports, from soccer, basketball, tennis, archery, boxing and even yoga – children get to use all of their muscle groups as well as build their basic knowledge, skills and interest so they can pursue their favourite sports when they enter school.
With group activities that promote cooperation and introduce the concept of winners and losers (something that comes hard to most toddlers!), the carefully designed games will get your little one pulling together as part of a team, increasing attention spans and helping them realise the importance of taking turns.
There are two age-appropriate classes, with the walking-2 year old class children focus on the bare skills needed for a particular sport, such as target hitting and balance for golf; with the 2-3 year class taking things a step further, focusing on -for example – learning how to hold the golf club and executing a swing.
FREE TRIAL CLASS: SPRING are so sure you’ll love the Supersport programme that they are offering free trial classes between 18-30 August 2013. Simply email [email protected] to register your interest, quoting ‘Sassy Mama’, and the nice people at SPRING will get back to you with a suitable time slot. Easy!
We think this sounds like a winning option when it comes to introducing our kids to the benefits of sport. But don’t just take our word for it – here’s a little sneak video preview of what Supersport has to offer! Who knows – maybe your child is destined to become the next biggest name in tennis, golf or even a yoga master?
