Our junior programmes cater for children from years 1-8 at school (age 5-13).
Year 1 & 2 Children take part in our Funsticks programme. Funsticks is a fundamental movement and basic skill development programme.
Children in years 3-8 at school take part in Small Sticks. Small Sticks is a series of modified games that are tailored to be age and stage appropriate and change in format as children move through this age range. Small sticks are predominately school-based (mixed) teams although we do have some clubs who run teams in this competition.
