Sportsblog: Playball has a permanent venue

IMG_5310Parents of toddlers and preschoolers will be happy to note that Playball Switzerland, after three years of searching, has found a venue for classes in the Nyon area.

On the lake road, in Mies, above the new creche and next to the Silhouette gym, the venue is very easy to access and and parking is available.    Close to CDL and GES and only 10mins from Nyon, this indoor space is just what Playball has been after for its activities.

Why Playball?  These camps are tailored to meet the needs of younger children and are based on the fundamental sport skills necessary for most sports, including tennis, hockey, cricket, golf, football, rugby, basketball, football, volleyball – just about any ball sport you can imagine!

What is Playball?  The programme is based on a curriculum, maintained and developed over 25 years, by a consortium of child development specialists, teachers and sports professionals.  Each day covers a wide and varied schedule of sports skills and games where children have a chance to participate in a range of instructor-led activities.

Sound great?   The fall session starts the second week of September and classes are already filling up.  They will run on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.   Additional times/days available with sufficient demand.
