Parent and Child Basic Moves

The starting block to our Junior Saints programme of activity – our Basic Moves class for children aged 2-3. A parent and toddler class that develops your child’s physical literacy whilst allowing their imagination to run wild with the use of colour recognition, counting, and association games.   This class introduces children to a wide range of movement patterns and develops life skills such as communication, sharing, listening, and teamwork.  A great opportunity for your children to meet other children in structured play time. The class is 45minutes long and parents are required to stay for the entire session. 

Gymnastics

The Saints Sport Gymnastics Programme provides a pathway of gymnastics classes from preschool to primary 4 in an exciting and fun environment.  

Tots Gym

Our tots gym classes, for preschool children (aged 3-5), teach your children the important skills of balance, co-ordination, jumping and landing. Children learn to control their bodies and movements following a circuit of bright and fun equipment. This class gives children the opportunity to engage in a more structured and independent physical play class which continues to challenge their specific and individual physical capabilities. With expert supervision and a playful environment, these classes emphasise FUN.  

P1-P4 Gymnastics

The P1-P4 Gymnastics class provides an outlet for children to develop skills like strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and body control all whilst building positive self-esteem in a relaxed and fun environment. Children will continue to build their strength and stamina using more complex equipment set ups including beam, vault, floor and bars; they will also continue to have the opportunity to take part in warm up games and carefully constructed relay races.  

Football

The Saints Sport Football Programme follows the SFA’s player pathway and offers a fun and positive environment for children and young people to develop their footballing skills and confidence.  

Tots Football

Fun participation sessions for preschool children (aged 3-5) that provide the first step on a young person’s football journey. Children will develop their skills, confidence, teamwork, spatial awareness and physical literacy through a range of fun and varied football themed activities.  Parents are encouraged to stay in this class to help your children’s development. In line with guidelines parents are required to follow all Scottish Government guidance on physical distancing.  

P1-P3 Football: Desire to Play

Fun remains the focus in the P1-P3 football sessions. Themes will include passing, shooting, dribbling, control to name a few! There will be lots of small sided games for children to put these skills into practice. 

P4-P6 Football: Learn to Play

In the P4-P6 football sessions, the fun continues with a greater emphasis now being placed on skill acquisition. Themes will include passing, shooting, dribbling and control. There will be lots of small sided games for children to put these skills into practice. 

P7-S2 Football: Developing Players

The P7-S2 sessions continue to offer children a fun environment to further develop their footballing skills. Children will learn positional play, teamwork and tactics through game based coaching and small sided games. 

Tennis

The Saints Sport Youth Tennis Programme provides a pathway of tennis classes for nursery and primary school children that follows the LTA’s youth programme. 

Tots Tennis

The sessions are full of fun tennis themed games and activities where children will develop basic movement patterns and physical literacy. This is a parent and child class for preschool children aged 3-5 where parents must remain during the session at all times and play an active part with your child in each of the activities. In line with guidelines parents are required to follow all Scottish Government guidance on physical distancing.  

P1-P5 Youth Tennis  

Sessions packed full of fun and dynamic games! The ages noted below are simply a guide and these sessions follow the LTA Youth Programme which allows children to progress and develop with other players of similar ability as opposed to being group solely by their age.   Three courts will run side by side which allows children to progress and develop without having to change the day or time they attend and each court will offer one of the following themes: 

Blue Ball: Learn the Basics (5-6 years) 

Children will learn the basics of the game and continue to develop basic movement patterns and physical literacy, along with learning to play different shots.  

Red Ball: Serve, rally and score (7-8 years) 

Mini red sessions continue to offer a fun environment where children will learn to play the game through a series of games and activities. Children will learn to play different shots and how to serve, rally and score. A greater emphasis will be placed on developing tactics and technique. 

Orange Ball: Develop a rounded game (8-9 years) 

The children will see children learn to problem solve and develop their tactical awareness and strokes through a series of game-based practices and games.
