K4C
K4C offers weekly Hockey (boys and girls) and Netball lessons to pre-primary children (4-6 year olds) as an outside school program and as an extra mural at certain schools. We focus on getting these little ‘Sport Stars’ ready for sport in Grade 1, but believe strongly in the ‘full’ holistic development of young children. A Well Balanced Lifestyle = A Happy, Healthy Child. An active lifestyle is part of a balanced lifestyle, which in turn will produce a happy child. Children mustn’t only do sport to be the best or to be in the top team, it must be fun, it must be part of living healthy. Thus we develop skills in both sports, focus on ‘comprehensive’ development of the child and also support the community through our ‘10%-back-to-less-privileged-kids’ community project which will do free lessons in less privileged areas, collect 2nd hand sporting equipment for poor schools and more. We will soon bring ‘Kids Duathlons; running and cycling’ in as part of K4C. Support us, Support healthy living, Support happy children, Support a better future generation….Support South African Youth Development!!
