How to keep your kids fit during school holidays? Why not try a school holiday sports camp program.  

There are so many ways to keep your kids fit and healthy these school holidays. Kids love school holidays at the best of times, as they have so much freedom and choice, from playing video games, surfing the net, lazing around in bed, texting or chatting with their friends online. So often, as parents, we forget that keeping them active, fit and healthy is the key to balanced lifestyle.

We are confident that all parents will agree that there is nothing like teaching your kids to enjoy these experiences in the school holidays after they spend some time working on their health and fitness. One awesome way that you can guarantee your kids will enjoy their school holiday break is having them start their day off with a great physical workout with their mates.

A super way to do this is by registering them in a school holiday program such as Kidzphyz Sports. A sample of some of the activities from an upcoming cricket clinic is below.

Never been to a Holiday Sports Camps or Program before?

No worries….

There are always some anxious children when they arrive on the first day of the holiday program. This is highly normal, as for many it is the first time they have met any of the other kids. It is important to know that all of the camps and clinics are run by professional staff who work as teachers in educational settings all around Melbourne. So all of your coaches and staff will be used to meeting new children and helping them settle into a new day with the team at the camp.

What do you need to bring to a holiday program sports camp?

This depends on the sports camp you have registered for. When you book, a detailed confirmation letter with information on what to bring will be emailed to you as a PDF so you can download it within 24-48 hours of booking your camp. Specific sports equipment such as bats, balls goals etc are provided, but camp participants are welcome to bring their own gear. However, in contact sports or high-risk sports such as AFL, soccer, hockey and basketball, participants must provide their own mouthguard.

At the Kidzphyz Sports camps, participants are also treated with a selection of seasonal fruit and biscuits during the morning and afternoon tea breaks. Lunch meals form Subway can also be ordered from the camp director at each program venue.
