Pilot Sports Program to be Rolled Out Across all Emali Centres

In an ongoing commitment to build strong relationships with our community we are very excited to announced we have  partnered with Youth Jobs PaTH. We we be implemening a sports program across all of our Emali centres.

Youth Jobs PaTH is an Australian Government employment service that helps young people gain skills and work experience.

Why a sports program?

It is important to introduce sport at a young age. Sport has a range of physical and developmental benefits for young children. Sport and physical education can provide big boosts to fine and gross motor skills as well as educational potential. It’s fundamental to young children: skills learned by playing a game or taking part in team or solo sports have a positive impact on a child’s overall development.

Children can learn key values including teamwork, perseverance, improvisation, honesty, acting within a clearly defined set of rules. They also learn about respect for themselves and others. It’s also the perfect platform to learn about the nature of fair competition.

The sports covered in the program include:

  • Football
  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Tennis
  • Netball
  • Hoops
  • Hurdles

Health and Wellness is an ongoing focus for us and we promote a strong emphasis on fun and play as a promoter of education. We look forward to kick starting this new program with Youth Jobs Path.
