The Sport and Movement Programme for your 5 Year Old

The Programme for Five Year Old Children

In addition to fine-tuning skills developed in the previous Playball programmes your child will practice more demanding and specialised sports skills and sport sequences, with an emphasis on the quality of the skills execution.


Programme Emphasis


The refinement of the manipulation component of the popular sports.


The development of skills relating to direction, distance and space.


The development of the correct execution of the skill.


The development of teamwork and partner work.


Development of decision-making in a game situation.

Sport Games

Playing small-sided sport games in a competitive environment.

Sport Focused

The Preps are starting to find competence in all the individual sport skills. Amongst other skills, they find it increasingly easy to confidently bounce a ball up to a hoop and shoot a basket; or dribble a hockey ball and pass it to a teammate.

There are a number of exercises that include partner work to provide the children with an introduction to team work. They are learning to work together as a unit to achieve a common goal while taking on leadership roles.


What Your Child Will Achieve

This programme deals with the refinement of skills. There is greater emphasis on the quality of each movement. The programme includes a wide range of specialised sports skills, formalised sports drills and a large amount of partner work, which lays the foundation for competent sport participation and team selection.
