Kids & school holiday programs

Register for our Sports Spectacular school holiday program and experience sport at La Trobe Sport! Our program is filled with exciting activities both dry and in the pool! The Sports Spectacular school holiday program is suitable for children aged between 7-12 and runs on select dates from 9:00am – 4:00pm.

Activities

Children will get the opportunity to experience a variety of dry and aquatic sports! Activities include but are not limited to the following:

  • kayaking
  • water polo
  • tarzan rope
  • rock climbing
  • basketball
  • futsal
  • volleyball
  • badminton
  • netball
  • racquetball
  • dodgeball
  • tug of war and more!

On select dates, we walk over to our brand-new state-of-the-art Sports Park to enjoy all the facilities have to offer!

Our program is the perfect opportunity for your child to try their hand at something new in a supported, recreational environment!

Our outdoor artificial surface Rock Climbing wall is 10m high and has five routes ranging from easy to challenging to suit any skill level. Rock Climbing may be cancelled with minimal notice in adverse weather conditions. For further information regarding safety and maintenance, please visit our Rock Climbing webpage.

Prior to the commencement of the aquatic activities, all children will undergo a 25m swim test through shallow and deep water. If the child cannot adequately complete the swim test, they will be required to wear a lifejacket for the duration of the aquatic session. Please ensure your child brings appropriate swim wear, goggles, towels, thongs and a bag for wet items. There will be time for children to quickly rinse at the conclusion of the aquatic session.

All aquatic sessions are supervised by qualified lifeguards, in addition to the Activity Leaders participating in the water with their allocated group.

Please note our pool is a regular lap pool (shallowest point is 0.95m) not a child’s wading pool so please consider whether your child is a capable swimmer who is confident in deep water before registering for our program.
