Fall 2019

Trafalgar Noon Hour Programs

Welcome back to school and to our Noon Hour Programs!  Once again, we are offering a variety of interesting and fun programs.  Noon Hour Programs are a great opportunity for children to have fun and enjoy extracurricular activities with their school friends, as well as a wonderful way to meet new friends!  The programs are all taught by experienced instructors with criminal record checks. 

In the fall term, programs are offered to children in Grades 1 – 7.   Programs will open up to Kindergarten kids in second term, once they have had a chance to settle in. This year, we are offering a slightly reduced program, in order to allow children the opportunity to fully take advantage of outdoor play during the autumn months. 

Programs begin the week of October 1st and run until the end of November/beginning of December 2019 (last session date varies according to program).  The programs will run at lunchtime between 12:10-12:47 pm

Sportball Soccer

Sportball introduces primary school children to the concepts and skills involved in the eight core sports of the Sportball methodology: basketball, football, baseball, golf, hockey, soccer, volleyball, and tennis. Classes are conducted using developmentally appropriate methods and age appropriate equipment sized just right to introduce, practice and refine gross motor skills. The programs reinforce the benefits of teamwork and skills development rather than the importance of winning, enabling children to gain the confidence and develop the social skills necessary to succeed in sport and life. The curriculum is skills-driven, high-energy and fun-filled.
