The PhysKidz Program

The PhysKidz Program

Sport and physical education is fundamental to the early development of children. In the PhysKidz program, the skills learned during play, physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young children. Through the participation in sport and physical education, young children learn about the importance of key values such as:

  • Honesty,
  • Teamwork,
  • Fair play,
  • Respect for themselves and others, and
  • Adherence to rules.

These learning aspects highlight the impact of physical education and sport on a child’s social and moral development in addition to physical skills and abilities.

What makes PhysKidz different from other sporting academies?

The PhysKidz program aims to prepare children for primary school by implementing fun, sport-orientated activities. These sport-orientated activities prepare learners for the Physical Education Program that is followed in school, which forms part of the assessments.

PhysKidz does not focus on one specific sport, however on a variety of sporting codes. This gives learners the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of sporting programs so that they are able to make their own, informed decisions about participating in a specific sport in primary school that they enjoy.

Experience Success and Achievements

The PhysKidz program gives young children the opportunity to:

  • Get together and have fun - everyone can enjoy the social aspect of taking part in sport whatever their standard or ability.
  • Experience success and achievement - sport gives people the chance to improve their personal performances, fulfill their potential, participate in and win competitions.
  • Learn physical and technical skills - students can learn about the techniques of various sports and how to improve their skills.
  • Develop timing, balance and co-ordination - sport helps students develop these skills, which will be useful after leaving school.
  • Improve mental skills - sport encourages young people to develop problem-solving and decision-making skills, concentration, determination, control of emotions and commitment.
  • Co-operate and communicate with others - training and competing with others (particularly in team events) will encourage people to express and share their feelings with others.
  • Enhance motivation, organisation, leadership and interpersonal skills - sport can act as a way to develop these skills and take on responsibilities.

At the end of the day PhysKidz is all about the learners having FUN!
