Many view December as the start of the festive break, but for those at Sporting Chance it signals the start of a hectic sporting period where our focus is bringing school children together and focusing on keeping them active, by engaging them in a series of sport codes. It will only be at the conclusion of these sporting and lifestyle lessons where children can say they are ‘officially on holiday’.
Every year we are met by bright smiles as the eager children arrive with high expectations, and our aim, as Sporting Chance, is to ensure that we live up to those expectations. The sporting codes on offer are Cricket, Soccer and Hockey.
The line-up for the week has included extensive lessons by our qualified coaches in all the above-mentioned sporting codes. Over and above merely offering the technical requirements needed for the various sporting codes, Sporting Chance values the importance of using the fun elements provided by sport, to pass on valuable and helpful life lessons. Graham Bentz, a renowned fitness and conditioning coach, attended one of our clinics and spoke about the importance of eating healthily and remaining active to the young participants.
Super Sport provided coverage of the activity filled week, interviewing coaches and participants.
This collaborative process with our engaged sponsors has resulted in the children forming strong bonds with other participants, as well as the coaching staff and the overall impact has been that of the formation of a family-like bond/ atmosphere.
“Fun Friday” wraps up the week giving us an opportunity to award our little Sporting Chancers. An array of goodies, availed by our superb sponsors, will be up for grabs, giving the youngsters a taste of what’s to come at Christmas! What better way for the kids to kick off the festive season?
We are grateful to stage another round of successful coaching clinics. This would not have been possible without the support and assistance of Flip File, Kauai, GM, Sportmans Warehouse, HI-TEC, Liqui Fruit Vitality and Super Sport Let’s Play.
