On Track Program
Skills Based Program for Under 6’s
The idea of On Track is to teach children skills before they are asked to perform them in a competitive environment.
A massive amount of research has gone into understanding how children learn. On Track is based on this research. If parents want their children to be able to perform sporting skills at a later stage, On Track is the best start they can have.
Benefits of On Track
The benefits of your child participating in On Track are:
No waiting around
With On Track the kids are on the go the whole time, there is no excessive waiting in lines or queues.
More chances to practice
A child does not have any chance to improve their skills unless they have plenty of opportunities to practice. For example, if they only have three turns at the long jump each week, they are not going to improve those skills. If they have 63 turns at ‘leaping’ and ‘horizontal jump’ then they do improve those skills.
All children have the opportunity to excel
The focus is on the skill development of each individual. There are no winners and losers, all children come out ahead.
All of the activities are designed so that the kids are having fun all the time. Research has shown that the best condition for children to learn skills is when they are stimulated through enjoyment.
There are no complicated rules to follow, nobody gets disqualified and it’s easy for parents to lend a helping hand.
It satisfies the specific needs and wants of children between 5-7 years and is designed for them.
It’s time friendly
All the action only takes 60-90 min.
