Parents and caregivers, are you already planning for the school holidays?  Not sure what to do with your kids?

Bring your kids along to the FREE active fun day for kids at the University of the Sunshine Coast's new Indoor Sports Stadium on Wednesday 9 April.   The day is all about showcasing the sports and activities in the local area and providing kids with the opportunity to have a go for FREE.   Children are invited to join in the many ½ hr clinics being held by local clubs and organisations throughout the day. 

Children can 'come and try' pole vaulting, high jumping, long jump and sprints with Alana Boyd who has been selected in the Australian Olympic Team.  Other activities on offer during the day include Basketball, Tennis, Karate, Kickboxing, Sports Aerobics, Cheer Leading, Yoga for Kids, Cycling skills, AFL, Wheelchair Basketball, Futsal and Badminton.  The day will also feature some sport aerobic and cheerleading displays, youth bands, musicians and the Landsborough State School Kids in Khaki Choir.

All children who participate in the day will also receive a gift bag that includes stickers, brochures and a FREE copy of the book "Keeping Kids Active: Sunshine Coast".   "Keeping Kids Active" - the entertainment, sports and leisure bible for parents - is perfect for locals, newly arrived families or those heading to the Sunshine Coast for their holidays.  The book is 384 pages chocked full of activities for kids on the Sunshine Coast of all AGES, for all BUDGETS, INTERESTS and ABILITIES.  Discover new parks, beaches, sports, and activities right here on the Coast, and face these holidays and future holidays armed with a new adventure for every day!
