What is Playball?

Playball is a movement, motor and sport skills development programme for young children. We offer an extensive range of skills covering the 3 primary movement categories: stability, locomotion and manipulation skills. Lessons are presented in a positive, fun and unintimidating environment with much emphasis on life skills such as, perseverance, good sportsmanship, concentration, confidence, self-discipline and more.

What if he has done Playball before?

Playball has age appropriate and progressive stages. If your son has Playball before, that is great. The 4-5 year old Playball stage called Dinkies and builds on the Watchme@3 programme. The 5 – 6 year old Grade R Preps programme builds on the Dinkies programme. (see more info below)

Playball policy

  • Small groups of maximum 8 boys to ensure individual attention
  • Strict adherence to the scientifically formulated coaching manuals
  • Positive, constructive but firm teaching approach
  • Coaches are hand-picked, well trained and have experience working with this age

Playball methodology

  • Maximum Activity Levels ensure that children spend the majority of the lesson "doing" rather than standing in lines or not participating.
  • The Playball Focus Points are 6 consecutive focus points per skill that ensure that Playballers get to master even the trickiest of skills.
  • Creative presentation methods guarantee that boys go away feeling positive and motivated, and do not become restless or undisciplined.
