Dreghorn Loan Hall

The sports coaching program that helps today's children become confident adults.

Our aim is simple. We want all children to develop the confidence and skills to experience the joy of taking part in sport and being active for life.

Enjoy-a-Ballers will establish a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional skills – and because it is so much fun they never even guess that their multi-sport class is providing them with abilities they can use for the rest of their lives.

Basketball, baseball, football, hockey, volleyball, tennis, rugby, cricket, handball, dodgeball.


STAGE 2...

From around age 4 kids are more than ready to move it up a gear in the ongoing development of their physical skills. By expanding on the fundamentals of movement and developing a positive attitude to being active and playing sport, your child will gain the skills, experience and attitudes which will set the stage for them to take part in games and sport throughout their lives. We are teaching them the joy of being active and moving.

STAGE 3...

Our Champs learn sport specific skills and techniques as well as the basic rules of ten ball sports.

What they will be doing:

Champs rotate through the 10 different sports on a weekly basis, playing matches and fine tuning skills.

The Champs stage is excellent for further development and enhancement of spatial perception within the environment of an actual match or game – it becomes easier to judge how hard or soft to kick / throw a ball to a team mate, how far does the ball need to travel and also in which direction? With practice these skills become more natural and not something to “think about".

Champs are constantly adding to their repertoire of life skills.

- Sportsmanship
- Respect – for yourself and others
- Decision making
- Goal setting
