UQ Sport Kids Club

Bust boredom and wind down whinging with a Brisbane-based, full day school holiday care program your kids will love!

If your kids are snaking around your ankles, and there’s no end to the school holidays in sight, sign those restless legs up to the coolest Club in town.

Kids Club is vacation care with a twist – we keep your kids entertained with school holiday activities specifically designed to engage children in an active way, while learning new skills and making new friends!

It’s a jam-packed week of active fun and learning, where your little legend will:

  • Kick new goals in a mixture of indoor and outdoor sports-based games, such as soccer, touch, netball, tennis, and tag.
  • Join in active learning sessions two days a week, discovering new topics like anatomy, first aid, sun safety, and the Olympics
  • Encounter new experiences with qualified experts, such as gymnastics, golf, fencing, taekwondo, athletics, hip hop dancing and many more

We take it easy on the younger kids, offering them modified versions of the above activities, as well as:

  • Campus exploration walks where they learn about our native flora and fauna
  • Discover native inhabitants at the UQ Lakes, including turtles, eels and ducks
  • Chess, arts and crafts sessions for those little ones that fancy fun over fitness

We bring in experts in gymnastics, capoeira, fencing and laser skirmish to deliver new experiences to your little legends. After your kids sweat it out, they can cool down in the Schonell Theatre to watch movies in style on the big screen, then head to the pool for some inflatable fun!

Our Kids Club is open to everyone, and there is no preference given to UQ community members.

Unplug your kids from the technicolour screen and sign them up to some active fun with Kids Club!

JOIN THE CLUB

What are the options?

Why should you choose UQ Sport Kids Club?

At Kids Club, we’ll teach your little champion healthy habits that will set them up for a lifetime of success. The more kids run, play and laugh, the more their physical and psychological skills will inevitably improve, making your child feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin. Being active beats insecurities, encourages a happy mindset, and improves mental focus and cognitive skills. There really aren’t any negatives to having fun!

We operate Kids Club across our five sporting venues that make up Queensland’s largest multi-sport complex. Your child will splash in an Olympic-sized pool, make a racket at kid-sized tennis courts, stretch their little legs on an Olympic-standard athletics track, and shoot hoops in our Fitness Centre. Plus, your little soccer star will kick around on our international-standard synthetic turf fields!

Find finalised Kids Club schedules in the Downloads section below, two weeks prior to the first day.

Please note: not all activities can be offered each week, due to instructor availability. 

Before and After Care

We understand you have commitments that restrict your time, which is why we offer a free before care and after care service!

Before care runs from 8am – 9am, and after care from 4pm – 5pm, and there is no need to register for this service.

Please be aware that late pick up will result in fees of $15 for every 15 minutes after 5pm.

Eleanor Schonell Bridge Walk

To make the trip into UQ that little bit easier, we offer an escorted walk from the Dutton Park side (south side) of the Eleanor Schonell Bridge each day of the holiday program.

The bridge walk leaves Dutton Park at 8:30am sharp each day of the holiday program. Children are dropped off at Dutton Park by 4:20pm each afternoon. To participate in this service, please be sure to enrol online at the time of enrolment in your chosen UQ Sport Kids program.

Parent Information

Parents are only allowed to watch for the first 15 minutes when dropping their children off. We work in conjunction with the Child Protection Act and all UQ Sport Kids Club employees hold a current working with children blue card to ensure we are providing a safe environment for your child.

Please see our extensive UQ Sport policies and procedures relating to Working With Children for further information.
