I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.

Are your children passionate about sports?
Many children across Melbourne participate in sport-related extra-curricular activities, which are organised through a professional service. There are many locally run businesses which specialise in certain sports, such as tennis, self-defence, etc. However, there are city-wide programs that cater to a variety of age groups and specialise in a wider spectrum of sports and exercise programs for children. This article gives you an overview of three such programs:
1. Ready Steady Go Kids With 120 nation-wide locations to choose from, Ready Steady Go Kids caters to children from the age of pre-school to up to 6. Their program is based not only in playing the sport, but promotes healthy lifestyle as well. Children will be exposed to ten different sports in a ten-week period. The program prides itself in fun, safe and healthy environment where children will learn life-long skills and develop social skills along the way.
Established almost 30 years ago, AllSportz offers multi-sport programs for preschoolers, kindergarten and primary school aged children (18 months-10 years). AllSports prides itself by focusing on strengthening the personal skills that your child may be gifted with. AllSportz offers special holiday programs and can also organise birthday parties for children. The Coaches are trained and qualified in the sport they teach, making the experience worthwhile for the participants.
3. SportsBuzz With six locations throughout the Melbourne suburbs, SportsBuzz offers flexible programs for children aged 2 to 8. Apart from teaching the sport itself, the program also focuses on teaching children the importance of other key issues, such as keeping a good posture, maintaining concentration and coordination, developing self-confidence and independence, etc. Holiday Programs offer 45 minutes sessions for those who enrol and make the most of their time off from school.
