Ready Steady Go Kids commenced in Australia in 2004 and our quest is to help all children benefit from sport and physical activity. Today, our physio-designed programme is run at approximately 200 locations across Australia and many more internationally.
Our program objectives are as follows:
Introduce preschoolers to a variety of sports in a structured, safe, inclusive and non-competitive environment.
Show preschoolers that sport and physical activity are fun, thus developing a lifelong passion for exercise.
Develop and enhance age-appropriate gross motor skills,coordination and correct posture.
Introduce and reinforce the importance of warm-up and stretching to help prevent injuries, and proper hydration.
Teach the importance of good sportsmanship and teamwork.
Decrease childhood obesity.
Increase each child’s confidence.
Prepare children for school and participation in the broader community.
Each Ready Steady Go Kids class at our weekend locations is run under shelter (we are there rain or shine) for a duration of 45 minutes, and we cover five sports per term.
Our classes are designed to focus on a specific gross motor, hand-eye/foot-eye and/or balance activity to complement the sport component and our programme structure is repeated each week so that participants become familiar and comfortable with the routine.
We invite and encourage parental participation in our classes, and — trust us — parents love our classes as much as the kids!
We have also customized the programme for pre-schools, ranging from 30 minute to 60 minute sessions that adapt to the environment we find ourselves in. We conduct class with 2 trainers and we focus on safety, fun and teaching the children skills during the lesson.
If you are a pre-school (childcare or kindergarten), you can also reach out to us and we would be glad to prepare a presentation for you at your convenience.
