    Mini sports for Gold Coast toddlers

    Pre-school sports should be more like play than a lesson or drill, with coaches emphasising fun, socialisation and key motor skills. Developing an understanding of working as a team, sharing, and following instructions are also critical elements. On the Gold Coast, we are lucky to have a number of options for children aged 1-5 starting their sporting journey. This list below covers both indoor and outdoor options, casual attendance and term programs. With locations right across the Coast, you're bound to find something that fits with your schedule!
