Athletes in Motion (AIM)

New to our program offerings this year is AIM Sports Camp. This is a partnership between Childhood Now, Athletes in Motion (AIM), Sportscorps, and eThekwini Municipality.

AIM visited all three of our Childhood Now communities in South Africa, engaging the children in an 8 day sports and leadership camp. Campers and leaders participated in four sports per day among swimming, Cross Fit, skipping, hockey, rugby, martial arts, ultimate frisbee, soccer, and volleyball.

In total, campers each received 20 hours of formal sport instruction, plus a final fun filled day at the beach. Leaders of the camp received 18 hours of formal training pre-camp, and 20 hours of informal training during camp.

This sports camp is leading to a sustainable after school sports program at our three centres, operating year-round.

We look forward to implementing another camp at the end of 2016, as well as having plans for a Canadian-based sports camp implementation.
