Sports Academy

What’s it all about?

Team sports open up the opportunity for KidzWish Kidz to experience the ups and downs of life. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose but no matter what we are all in it together. The philosophy of sport, helps build character, friendships, fitness and the joy of working together for that final goal.

And at KidzWish we believe every child has the right to enjoy sports. We’ve designed the program to provide specific sports activities, which accommodate a variety of skill levels and encourage children to be their best.

The program takes place in an indoor environment, with safe equipment and children are taught by knowledgeable coaches.

Eligibility

Illawarra & South Coast children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability and their siblings. 

What the parents are saying

"Henry loves being part of the KidzWish Sports Academy Program where everyone is friendly and accepting. There is no need to explain how great the achievements of this team are as it shows for itself in the smiles and the individual accomplishments of each player. Becoming fit and learning new skills has never been so fun for my child!” - Cindy Mann, KidzWish Parent
