Our vacation care program

At Pittwater Sports Centre, we are the leaders in school holiday clinics on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Children are divided into four groups featuring age appropriate activities designed to keep kids activate, developing their creativity and exploration skills.

Our state-of-the-art gymnastics and indoor play centre provides a safe, dry and comfortable area for kids to undertake a huge range of gymnastics and sporting activities, craft, cooking and so much more. A multi-purpose indoor area is set up with a Wii and games ensuring plenty to keep everyone busy.

Of course the Sandbucket Play Centre is another highlight that all participants look forward to, and in warm holidays many squeals of delight can be heard from the slip and slide.  All activities are held on the premises with the exception of kayaking where children 8 and over can leave right from our back door for a kayaking excursion (weather permitting).

Pittwater Sports Centre provides morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea throughout the day, included in the great price of $85.00 for members and $97.00 for non-members. With allergies and special dietary requirements being catered for upon early notification.  Pittwater Sports Centre is a NUT FREE environment!  Our staff are also competent in working with children with all sorts of needs and requirements. Let your children’s school holidays be a fun and exciting time!

We have now launched our new camps feature with multi child and day discounts to accompany the parent portal where you can enrol, pay and manage your account online in a time suited to you. Visit our Parent Portal today.

Skills development for other sports

Does your child love tennis? Soccer? Netball? Or just about any other sport? The skills gained in our holiday workshops provide the perfect opportunity to develop the necessary skills needed to enhance their ability in their chosen sport.

Our holiday clinics have an emphasis on developing children’s gross motor skills through fun activities in the gymnasium, as well as outdoor activities, obstacle courses and off-site sports.

While all activities are very different, fun and exciting for the kids, the skills required in each, are similar including gross motor skill development, hand-eye coordination, balance, flexibility and endurance.

This repetitive practice allows the kids to improving their skills, enhancing their ability in sports such as tennis, netball, soccer, football and most sports.
