Youth Sports Australia World Cup Challenge, Balmoral Oval
The World Cup Challenge Event will allow each child to represent different nations around the world to highlight diversity in sport and inclusive attitudes. Run over 4 hours, our one day sports camp will include World Cup competitions over various sports allowing children to develop skills such teamwork, leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship.
The Camps are Multi-Sport camps, which means kids have the opportunity to have fun and sample different sports rather than just one. By giving children the option to try different sports, research has shown they are much more likely to have fun and less likely to drop out from sports all together.
