SUSF Philosophy Statement

Our philosophy is to provide campers an opportunity to learn, keep fit, and have fun in a safe, exciting and fun-filled
environment. Through recognising the uniqueness of each child, SUSF are committed to providing a quality sporting
program that allows campers to develop socially, mentally, emotionally and physically.

SUSF recognises the significance of children being involved in engaging and meaningful opportunities. Children are
shaped by many experiences and are very capable at supporting one another as well as being resourceful and active
contributors in their learning. The result is children who are willing to become active members of society and who develop
a strong sense of identity and wellbeing.

We teach skills using a game sense approach and emphasise values such as sportsmanship, sharing and cooperation.
Our staff members are role models and leaders and are chosen for their welcoming and friendly nature and willingness to
provide a caring and safe environment that provides high quality care for children.


Why choose our School Holiday Sports Camps?

The focus of our camps is to introduce and encourage kids to participate in sport and fitness by focusing on the following:

  • Skill and movement development required to participate in various activities
  • Enhancing self confidence and social interaction
  • Encourage health & wellbeing by modelling healthy eating habits and by promoting play and leisure
  • Emphasise values of friendship and sportsmanship
  • Improving the desire to participate, have fun and learn

We are dedicated to providing our campers with professional coaching staff, excellent facilities, low coaching ratios and
lots of fresh fruit to snack on.

And don't forget camps operate rain, hail or shine!
