Fun Activities for Kids
Dinkies Playball program overview
The main activities emphasis is on mastering a wide variety of sport and movement skills with the balance between participation and the quality of each skill.
This program provides fun activities for kids to practice individual skills more rigorously, which subsequently develops competence and starts to develop muscle memory. In addition to practicing these skills more thoroughly, we begin to introduce skill sequencing - which is the process of stringing individual skills together to form a sequence of skills - the foundation of all sports.
An example would be the forehand shot in tennis. The shot is not performed on its own. The Playballer has to move into position beforehand using a variety of locomotive movements, perform the forehand shot, follow through, and then again move into position to hit the next shot. The more fluid these skills, movements and transitions are, the more successful the Playballer will be as a tennis player.
