Our preschool basketball program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney.
Australia's first ever Preschool Basketball Program!
Our preschool basketball program has been specially designed to focus on the fundamental movements skills (FMS) and target quality areas 1 and 3 of the national quality standards (NQS) Throughout our program, we incorporate gross motor movements such as balancing, throwing, catching, running, bouncing, galloping, and more, in activities that are fun for children. Most of the time basketball is a new sport to children and the energy and fun they have every class are incredible!
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT MY CENTRE?
Children's fundamental movements skills will be improved and developed through structured activities and games.
Our program is delivered by highly skilled coaches that have a passion working with children
Our program will focus on improving quality area 1 and 3 of the NQS which will improve your overall ACEQA rating.
Our daycare program incorporates fortnightly themes that are designed to teach team sport skills such as sportsmanship and leadership.
Little Boomers is the only daycare basketball program in Australia, and the activities we have designed are very unique to the market.
Our motivated coaches will travel to your centre to conduct the program each week on a consistent basis.
"Little Boomers have just completed a term with our children at Panania Child Care Centre and what a great experience they have had! The communication from the administration was fantastic, the coaches were amazing with such a young group of children and the children were so excited week to week to learn new skills and become the captain of the week! We look forward to another year with Buddy and his Little Boomers team"
