‘Team Seasons’ Club – Therapy That Feels Like Seasonal Team Sport

Ever wanted to be part of a sports team but found it hard to fit in? We use programs like Mini-roos soccer, Auskick AFL, Hot Shots tennis, etc as a therapeutic medium to teach skills.

Why attend?

Starting with each players strengths, foundational skills required for mainstream team sports are taught in this program. This includes good sportsmanship and the unspoken rules of the various types of sport. These skills are not generally overtly taught during mainstream sport, which can lead to kids and young adults feeling overwhelmed in mainstream sports programs. Associating with like-minded players will also foster a sense of community.

How does it work?

Training sessions are held at Frederick Mardsen Youth Centre sports field, tennis court and pool in Kallangur (weather permitting) and at Northside Indoor Sport & Fitness when weather is inclement. Medals are awarded as the young people progress between the different types of sport.  

What skills are covered? 

The following skills are addressed during the naturally occurring opportunities as they arise. 

  • Planning, focusing, concentration, organisation
  • Strategy
  • Team work
  • Emotion regulation
  • Problem solving
  • Conflict resolution, and
  • Fairness.

 

Mini Seasons is for the kinder kids, and Team Seasons is for primary ages to young adult.

Therapy assistants are available to generalise skills learnt during clubs to the everyday environment.
