Tamariki Sports popular with all ages

Tuesday 23 February 2010 | Published in Regional


Fun, exercise and valuable sports skills are what kids learn at the ANZ Tamariki Sports programme which continues today.

Last Tuesday more than 130 kids took part in the programme .

Basketball, touch rugby and athletics are the three main activities for the older kids.

Coordinator Ake Hosea-Winterflood has just developed a new programme for the little ones aged under five.

She says she accepts any child into the programme, no matter what age they are, and she has seen an increase in the number of younger children coming along to the programme.

“So I will take these little ones for our own programme while the older kids can carry on with their own programmes,” says Hosea.

The only criteria for the new programme for the little ones is that the parent accompanies their child.

So all you parents and caregivers – take advantage of the ANZ Tamariki Sports programme which aims to help children develop sports skills and learn healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle.

Today’s programme starts at 4pm.
