Playball is a highly specialised sport and movement program developed by sports experts, educational specialists, occupational and physical therapists.
Our Misson Statement
“Using sports as the means, we provide children with a sound base from which to develop EVERY aspect of their lives.”
The Playball Programme
Playball would like to offer all girls and boys an opportunity to participate in sport and physical activity on a weekly basis with our inspiring and fun-loving programme.
Our objective is to help enhance a positive attitude to being active and to develop essential physical skills, building a strong foundation for all ball sports. Our primary age range is 2 to 10 years, so we are a specialist early years teaching group.

Children will be working towards:
-Increased confidence and independence
-Physical Development - agility, balance, co-ordination and overall gross motor development.
-Social Development - forming good relationships and team work.
-Language for communication - understanding and following instructions.
-Dispositions & Attitudes - motivation to want to succeed, persistence and courage to keep on trying and a mature attitude to both winning and handling disappointment.
-The ability to take part in, not just one, but multiple sports!!
Asides from the general life skills (co-ordination, independence, self-worth, leadership, team-work) gained at Playball, our main sports covered are tennis, hockey, football, cricket, rugby, tag, basketball, netball and volleyball. Our action-packed curriculum will engage your little star in fun, age-appropriate, high quality games and activities, ensuring that they have a positive experience with us and enjoy being physically active!

Playball is coached in various sports centres and also in schools as part of the PE curriculum or as an extra activity after school; and at Pre-schools for 2-5 year olds. We have successfully coached over five thousand children in the South Dublin area since we started in 2008. Playball follows the progression from basic fundamental sports skills, to mini games and full team mathces!
We look forward to meeting you, and your child - you will not be disappointed!!!
