At SportZone we are committed to bring football to everyone, everywhere.
The Community After School Program's mission is to offer Accessible,
Approachable, Inclusive, Affordable and Fun Football to give low participating
communities and people every opportunity to play Football.
The program offers an accessible opportunity for young people that combines
fundamental ball and specific team building skills. The emphasis is on fun,
giving players the chance to develop social interaction and cooperation using Small Game formats and providing lots of opportunities for participants to be engaged throughout the sessions, to build their confidence towards a CAN DOattitude!
The program consists of weekly sessions in different venues around Wellington.
Coaches are in charge of different groups and help the kids get into teams, so
that they can play each other during the one hour the session. With plenty of games and fun during that time, the kids engage in all-around interaction with both their football skills and social interaction with team mates and opponents.
We want to increase participation in active sports around the communities, offer
the opportunity to low participating young people to afford and be part of a team
sport, while having heaps of fun and learning healthy lifestyle choices.
The program is designed to cater for kids of a wide age range: 5 to 12. They will
be put into teams accordingly so that they can get the most out of it.
It is available at these locations and times (each session lasting an hour):
Mount Cook School, Wellington: Tuesdays, 3:15pm.
Saint Joseph's School, Upper Hutt: Tuesdays 3:15pm.
