Our daycare basketball program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney.
Australia's first ever Daycare Basketball Program!
Our daycare basketball program has been specially designed to focus on the fundamental movements skills (FMS) and target quality area 1 and 3 of the national quality standards (NQS) Throughout our 8 week 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 session is incredible! We know that certain children may experience anxiety or shyness when practising a new sport, but our coaches are trained to understand this and deal with it in a steady and progressive approach.
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT MY CENTRE?
Children's fundamental movements skills will be improved and developed through structured activities and games.
All our coaches are trained and qualified to deliver a structured basketball program that adapts to different children's abilities. They also all have valid Working with Children Checks.
Our program will enhance quality area 1 and 3 of the NQS which will improve your overall ACEQA rating.
Our preschool program incorporates fortnightly themes that are designed to teach team sport skills such as sportsmanship, leadership and learning that it's okay to make mistakes.
Little Boomers is the only daycare basketball program in Australia, and the activities we have designed are very unique and different but fun at the same time.
Our coaches are reliable, they will travel to your centre to conduct the program each week on a consistent basis.
Little Boomers is also COVID SAFE, practising guidelines given from the Department of Health at every class.
BOOMERS GUARANTEE! If by the end of the term, you or any parent's isn’t satisfied with the level of our service, we will give you a FULL refund and a FREE basketball on top! That’s how certain we are that your centre will have a blast with our program and coaches.
"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"
