FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- miniBOUNCE will teach kids fundamental movement skills to assist them in everyday life. These skills are transferable to other sports and will stand them in good stead should they pursue gymnastics or trampolining further. Kids will learn to:
- Spring/jump in various ways and directions
- Land safely
- Move in lots of different ways (locomotion)
- Rotate their bodies in space
- Balance and hold shapes and positions
- Throw and catch (send and receive) objects
- Control the fine muscles of their hands and feet
- Work with others (coach/other children/carers) to learn and grow.
- The ratio of coaches to kids is 1:8. There will be at least 1 trained miniBOUNCE coach for every 8 kids in the class, with a maximum of 16 kids in the class.
- Depending on the number of kids, classes will have up to 2 coaches per class.
- It is highly recommended that parents/care givers of 3-4 year old’s participate with their child. The benefits of adult involvement are substantial and the coach should make every effort to involve the caregivers either directly or indirectly in the growth and development of their child. Parents/care givers of 4-6 year old’s are not required to participate. Kids at this age are encouraged to develop independence and self-help skills (such as asking for help, following instructions).
- miniBOUNCE classes run for a term block and kids should book in for the whole term, as they benefit from the regularity of classes and consistency of coaches.
- The term fee is based on R100 per week i.e. R1150 for a 10-week term. As well as the weekly miniBOUNCE session, your term fee also includes a 5 free coffee card for mum/dad and a silicone wristband your child.
- Siblings can only participate if they are over 3 years of age and have been enrolled in the miniBOUNCE program.
- Each miniBOUNCE class lasts for 60 minutes which includes 45 minutes of coached time and 15 minutes of optional free-play at the end of the class.
- We understand that every child develops in their own way and at their own rate. Children in the program may have had varying degrees of experience with preschool movement programs, other classes and care outside of the home. With this in mind, 3-4 year old children are encouraged to participate with a carer/care giver to assist them to complete all the activities in a way that benefits the individual child. All children are encouraged to join in with the activities as other children are, particularly the older aged children. However, children who are not yet able/willing to listen to and follow instructions will be helped along the way by our experienced coaches. Above all, the children’s time at miniBOUNCE should be safe and fun!
