The 4K’s has partnered with the Bradman Foundation to assist in providing financial support that is critical to ensure that the weekly sessions can be provided on an ongoing basis. The benefit to our local community and these students will be seen for years to come. We have already achieved amazing success by engaging over 50 students from Moss Vale and Bowral High Schools along with Tanagra Special School to attend weekly sessions during the school term.
We have been able to provide a place and time when these special support students can experience the thrill of achieving a sporting goal. Whether it is as simple as kicking a football, taking a catch, hitting a tennis ball or hitting a boundary, the joy of participation and celebration is infectious and enjoyable for all involved.
About the program aims:
COVERDRIVE, playing for a brighter future is designed to use sport based activities and values, to teach key social skills that are considered to be important for ensuring successful classroom and social interactions.
The Bradman Foundation is sharing its coaching expertise, resources and facilities at Bradman Oval to provide participation opportunities for public school students who would not normally be able to experience sport. The program consists of 40 x one hour multi-sport sessions over four terms for children who require support, socially, mentally and physically ages 10 to 17 years.
