UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program

School holiday fun for kids aged 5 to 12 years at UWA 

The UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program is full of fun and excitement for children aged 5–12, run by an experienced team of enthusiastic and friendly leaders. With a focus on participation and having a good time, this program is excellent for introducing kids to new sports in a friendly, non-competitive environment, and for keeping them active and happy during the school holidays. All leaders are trained in a variety of sports and each holds a First Aid qualification and Working with Children check.

About the UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program

At the UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program, we aim to provide children with a highly supportive environment which nurtures a healthy lifestyle, positive social interactions, introduction to leadership qualities, development of motor skills and the concepts of sportsmanship and respect of others.

We look to achieve this through:

  • Engaging children to a range of fun sports and games
  • Providing an introduction to non-traditional sports
  • Introduction to what UWA Sport has to offer 
  • Exposure to The University of Western Australia - a world Top 100 university

Due to the nature of the program, the UWA Kids Sport Holiday Program is not eligible for the child care subsidy.

Management of Medical Conditions

We endeavour to provide a safe, secure and healthy environment in which children will experience new and known sports in an inclusive environment. If your child has any medical condition which may affect their participation in our Program, please let us know as soon as possible.

If your child suffers from anaphylaxis, allergy, asthma or other relevant illness, you must complete this Medical Management Form so that we are able to give the best care to your child while attending our Program.

UWA Sport do not have emergency medication on hand and will only assist in administering medication we have been made aware of through the above Management Form, in line with our medical policies contained within the Program Terms and Conditions.

  • Sharing of sporting equipment will be limited, and all equipment used in activities will be cleaned and disinfected.
