Alan Brewster Recreation Centre Offer Special Kids Programme
Manukau City Council’s Alan Brewster Recreation Centre would like to invite kids and teens to participate in their great recreational programme. Here are just some currently on offer.
Parents can bring their teeny weenies (from 1 – 4 years) to have so much fun at the Kiwee Tots Gymnastics. This is a fantastic programme to develop their balance and motor skills. Tutor and Council recreational programmer Des Ng Shiu has a heap of experience in teaching very young children and really enjoys working with this age group. Your kids will love this programme and benefit enormously from it. The programme started 2nd week of February, runs on a Wednesday 9.30 – 10.30 and costs $30. It is not too late to enrol, with more programmes available later in the year.
For the 5 – 14 age group, on Thursdays from 4pm – 5pm, there is Hip Hop Dance, the craze all cools dudes are into. As an incredibly physical activity it is an alternative to sport for kids, presented as a structured programme by tutor and Centre recreational programmer, Rikki- Lee Parr. Your children will benefit enormously from the discipline whilst having an incredible time learning routines and really enjoying the exercise. What a way to go! The programme runs for 10 weeks at a cost of $30. Further programmes run later in the year.
In recent years basketball has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in New Zealand with some of our own players making it in the big league in the States. Boys and girls are welcome to participate in the basketball programme for 5 – 12 year olds which runs on a Monday from 4pm – 5pm and costs $30. Taken by recreational programmer, Brendon Damford, this class will essentially upskill participants to make them more capable and confident at the game. There is also a social mixed basketball league for adults on Wednesday from 6pm, supported by the Guada Bar.
