The Young Athletes programme focuses on FUNdamental Movement skills such as running, kicking and throwing, providing the children with activities and games that meet their individual skill and ability levels, while also allowing them to play together in a fun and inclusive environment. Young Athletes is a fun way for children to get active while also allowing them the opportunity to learn how to play with others and develop social and interactive skills.
