Kids Holiday Program 

School holiday fun for kids aged 5 to 12 years at UWA

The UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program is full of fun and excitement for children aged 5–12, run by an experienced team of enthusiastic and friendly leaders. With a focus on participation and having a good time, this program is excellent for introducing kids to new sports in a friendly, non-competitive environment, and for keeping them active and happy during the school holidays. All leaders are trained in a variety of sports and each holds a First Aid qualification and Working with Children check.

We aim to provide children with a highly supportive environment which nurtures a healthy lifestyle, positive social interactions, introduction to leadership qualities, development of motor skills and the concepts of integrity and respect.

We look to achieve this through:

  • Introducing children to a range of fun sports and games
  • Providing an introduction to non-traditional sports
  • Providing an introduction to what UWA Sport has to offer
  • Exposure to The University of Western Australia - a world Top 100 university

Due to the nature of the program, the UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program is not eligible to apply as a registered provider under the Child Care Subsidy.
