The best winter sports are the ones we can all play!

July 2017

As advocates for kids health, we know that it is important for the well being of all our Sporters to be involved in regular exercise of some kind regardless of the weather outside. And now that we are in the chill of winter, we have introduced Rugby League and refreshed our AFL/Footy classes for all our toddlers and preschoolers to enjoy. However, we know that it can be hard to keep your little ones interested, especially with all that extra energy being couped up in the rainy months! So we have decided to refresh our summer sports of tennis, basketball, cricket and soccer too! Be sure to join us in Term 3 for a fun-filled term with some new surprises along the way!

Rugby League Here We Come!

May 2017

Yes that is correct..The rumours circulating across New South Wales and Queensland are true Kelly Mini Sports is launching Rugby League this term. These classes include training in hand-eye coordination to catch and pass the ball while also learning how to score that beloved try. Kids will also be taught how to kick the ball off a rugby tee, play various tag games and most of all have fun. We are confident it will be a success in the rugby states of New South Wales and Queensland!

We have also had a heap of Facebook competition winners over the past month and we have given away over $1,000 of free term vouchers and free sports equipment.

Great Feedback

August 2015

We have nearly reached the half way point of the term and we have had great feedback from parents. " "A big thank you for making a Nannies & Granson's 1st day at Kelly Mini Sports today at Lara  fun and exciting. At the end of the session Jaxon actually kicked it in the goals lol. I think he liked being the squishy person who got to stomp on the markers and be a goalie just like his Uncle Adam Axon. Lovely teachers and very calming with all the children". We also run a coloring in competition at the end of each term which the winner receives a whole free term! So be sure to enter :)
