Don’t miss these Kiddie Sport dems

21 October 2019 | Sports


The highlight of the Kiddie Sport program is undoubtedly the annual Kiddie Sport Demonstrations, taking place Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October at Wanderers’ indoor hockey court this year.
For the 2nd consecutive year, the Kiddie Sport Demonstrations are sponsored by PSG Wealth, and the company’s MD Brian van Rensburg, is responsible for officiating at the opening at 10:30 on Saturday. He will also be handing over the PSG Wealth/ Kiddie Sport Certificates to all participants.

What is Kiddie Sport
Kiddie Sport aims at the development of ball skills, coordination, balance, reflex and socialising of the child at an early stage. Sport codes like tennis, cricket, hockey, soccer and golf are part of the programme in which kids are taught correct techniques.
According to Amanda van Dyk of Kiddie Sport, the program is really a hit because it encourages children to take part in a variety of sports codes, which gives them a host of options to choose from when they are older.
“Many children drop out of individual sports if they started to participate in that particular sport at a tender age. I believe that training for young children should be all round, incorporating different sport codes. Children must be wary of specializing in a particular sport too soon. Sport is fun and children love to have fun – and that is precisely our aim at Kiddie Sport!”
She adds that one reason pupils enjoy the Kiddie Sport program so much, is because many of the skills are taught through games.
The program has been provided at most Windhoek pre-primary and primary schools for the past 28 years. “More than a thousand kids in Windhoek have taken part in Kiddie Sport this year,” Amanda says, adding that 15 Kiddie Sport coaches have shown the participating kids the ropes.
“Participating kids are between 4 and 9 years and include pre-schoolers, grade 1s, 2s and 3s, and the coaches can easily spot a potential sport star in any sport code and rather recommend professional training.”
To witness first hand what Kiddie Sport is about, parents, teachers and interested parties are invited to attend the demonstration. “In a nutshell, by hosting the Kiddie Sport Demonstrations, parents are able to evaluate their children’s progress,” she says
