Sporting fun for CQ children

THERE are endless benefits to exposing your child to the world of sport in their early years.

And no one knows this better than Anthea Curtis from Ready Steady Go kids CQ.

Franchise owner of this four-year-initiative said it was the perfect way to introduce children to a variety of sports from as young as 18 months through to six years of age.

"Ready Steady Go Kids CQ kicked off in Rockhampton four years ago in a quest to help all children benefit from sport and physical activity,” Anthea said.

"We are a multi sport program offering a range of activities children can learn and enjoy as a precursor to taking on a club or sport that they grow a passion for.

"Our physio designed program focuses on fine and gross motor skill development in a fun environment conducted by high quality instructors.”

Anthea said the aim of Ready Steady Go Kids was to introduce pre-schoolers to a variety of sports in a structured, safe, inclusive and non-competitive environment and show them that sport and physical activity are fun.

"We also aim to introduce and reinforce the importance of warm-up and stretching to help prevent injuries and proper hydration as well as teaching the importance of good sportsmanship, teamwork and prepare children for school and participation in the broader community,” she said.

"In addition to this, every new child is entitled to a free trial by booking through the website or phoning 1300 766 892. Visit www.readysteadygokids.com.au.
