Children's Sports

Junior Sport Clinics - Basketball & Soccer

Loftus Recreation Centre runs Junior Clinics for Basketball, Netball and Soccer during each school term, and break for school holidays.

These clinics are for children ages 5-12 who have expressed interest in playing that sport, but are not yet ready to join a team. The clinics build their skills and knowledge of the sport, in a fun team environment.

There are sessions for beginners and advanced, so every child is welcome to participate. Come along for a casual session or join in for the entire school term.

Netball clinics are held on Mondays, with Soccer and Basketball held on Wednesdays. Children are welcome to participate in more than one sport choice.
