There’s no questioning the psychological and social benefits of sport for kids. Sprinting, jumping, racing and throwing in a team environment will inevitably teach your little legend vital life skills such as discipline, motivation, commitment, leadership, and cooperation, as well as educate your child to be humble, and learn to win and lose with dignity.
In the age of Underwater Rugby and Ultimate Disc, choosing a sport for your child is riddled with confusion and far too much choice, but at UQ Sport Kids, we bet we’ve got a program to get every child excited!
For kids who love to cause a racquet, dashing and darting around the house in the afternoons, they’ll relish smashing and serving on the court in Kids Tennis. Water babies will paddle up a storm at the UQ Sport Swim School, diving into a continual year-round program (with a break over summer holidays) – growing your little tadpole into the strongest fish in the sea. Keep your child’s little legs moving in Kids Athletics, where they’ll take a shot at a variety of track and field events to find the one they love. And don’t fret about keeping the kids entertained during the school holidays – our multi-activity Kids Club will have your little ones in awe with outdoor and indoor sport, craft, games, dance, and more!
Still not sure? Take a look at two of our most popular articles on where to get started – How to Choose a Sport and What’s the Right Age to Start – or give us a call and we’ll help you narrow down the options to find an activity that will get your child moving!
