Programs offered include Cricket, Australian Rules Football (AFL), Netball, Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball (Beach and Indoor), Hockey, Basketball; Rugby; Multisportz, Dance, Minikidz and Tri-Sportz. School programs and curriculum based events, specialist clinics, major events and other sporting themed activities are key aspects of what we do.
At Kidzphyz we strongly believe that the benefits of getting kids physical today will be the key to a future of lifelong wellbeing, health and happiness.
As teachers of physical fitness and movement, of school aged children for over 20 years, we are committed to the running of a series of programs which help kids develop physically, cognitively and emotionally, but most importantly, build and nurture self confidence and self-esteem through the many skills and experiences they will enjoy. We aim to provide unique programs where all kids participate in positive and supportive environments – regardless of ability – and sessions where all kids feel they have the opportunity and chance to succeed.
Since its inception in 2007, Kidzphyz has continued to grow from strength to strength. In late 2015, Kidzphyz joined forces with another leading leading sport camp organisation, Sports Camps Australia (SCA). This relationship has grown over the years and the combined efforts of these two organisations have put them at the forefront in the sports clinics, events and management fields.
