A new program designed to get more kids moving in Bundaberg is being launched in Term 3 thanks to the support of St Luke’s Anglican School and a group of passionate local families.
The concept for Junior Aussie Rules came about to give primary school aged children a chance to join in teams of 7 and play over eight weeks in Term 3.
The Junior Aussie Rules program, organised by Healthy Nation, has got off to a great start according to Healthy Nation CEO Paul Timms.
“While some traditional sport isn’t going ahead this year we are going the opposite way, putting a huge amount of effort into getting more kids into activity more often,” he said.
“We’ve had a huge response already, with 27 registrations on our first day.”
Paul said that Junior Aussie Rules is an inclusive non-contact sport for children of all abilities.
“We offer an easy way for kids and parents to get moving, have fun and make friends”
“In the first week we teach kids the rules and then put players into balanced teams of 7 to 9 a side.”
Registration is open to primary school aged children at a cost of $25 per child or $50 per family (immediate family members only).
Training sessions will be held on Tuesdays during Term 3 at Moore Park Beach (Community Hall Oval) and St Luke's Anglican School (Kalkie) from 3.30 pm.
Team games will be held at 9am Sundays from 19 July to 6 September at St Luke's Sporting Fields, Kalkie.
