At Kidzphyz Sports 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 Sports has continued to grow from strength to strength. In late 2017 Kidzphyz Sports camps Australia joined forces with Big Dogg Australia to provide a full suite of sports camps, holiday program activities, apparel, clothing and elite athletes from around the world. This partnership 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. 

Events and sports camps are held in multiple physical venues around Australia.  Our online and virtual PE sessions include live and pre-recorded classes that can be downloaded and viewed by students, teachers and parents at your leisure.  These can be delivered globally and are tailored to suit your needs.

If you have a desire for Kidzphyz Sports to come into your club, school or department to help run a clinic, program or class, please reach out.
