TuksSport Outreach Program
Our objective is to meet the needs of Bramley Home children who are not in traditional homes or schools by accessing the availability of TuksSport services through our direct intervention and interaction through sport.
Benefits and Challenges
Benefits for Children
An opportunity to be in a safe environment controlled by qualified coaches.Children will be introduced to various sports types that will include specific learning relative to the skills of the sport code but will also include help with hand eye co-ordination, motor skills whilst maintaining the fun element.
Children will be allowed to work at their own pace. Although children will be motivated by coaches they will still be given a great deal of flexibility to work at the pace best suited to their needs.
We will aim to develop a trusting relationship with honest and patient communicating.
TuksSport will ensure good utilization of our coaches hence creating a good coach to child number ratio. This will assist in giving the children the attention they need and assisting those children with learning or physical disabilities, or other sensitive children such as a child on a high level medication.
Children will have a chance to play on ‘proper’ sporting fields.
We aim to increase individual confidence and motivation for learning through sport.
Benefits for TuksSport
An opportunity for TuksSport Clubs to give our services, facilities and time free of charge to Bramley Home.
An opportunity for our coaches to contribute their knowledge and expertise in a structured and non-pressurized environment. Children are appreciative and results are evident because children to coach ratio is reduced as well as the novelty of the new environment and the nature of sport in general. This will also assist with reducing discipline problems.
TuksSport Clubs have a chance to assist children to realize goals and be given an opportunity to believe in their own abilities. We hope this in turn may change or distract from negative past experiences and create an afternoon of fun and happiness that filters through into their personal lives.
