Playball has been running in other countries for the last 25 years but is relatively new to the UK and has never before been taught in Sheffield.
Playball teaches life skills through sport skills. Whilst enjoying fun games children learn a variety of sports skills. In the younger age group we promote school readiness by promoting confidence and participation, listening skills and body awareness.
Playball has been adapted to the capabilities of the ages that we teach. All of the Playball programmes are developed by specialist movement therapists.We make sport fun using imaginative play. This ensures that childrens first introduction to structured sport is a positive one thus promoting a healthier lifestyle. Playball classes at the junior age have a maximum of eight children per class this is to ensure children maximise there learning potential.
