If we want people to smile, and we want their eyes to sparkle for our photos, it makes sense to have them think about something passionate and sweet instead of something stinky and smelly. Forming the “Ch” and “ee” sounds of “cheese” can pull your cheeks up into a smile. But saying “chocolate!!” meets much more.

Tennis is an open skilled sport, however many younger juniors are often drawn into playing in a closed environment. This often places them as the centre of the match situation opposed to a balance between them and their opponent.   The more quality of information a player can collect from the opponents game the more likely they will

A few posts online around learning today! Learning and teaching of course are not ying and yang and much is learned without being taught consciously but there are also principles of readiness that we should all understand. When a child is read they learn quickly and fluently, learning is both effective and efficient, and it sticks!

The buzz on my phone was to remind me that it was time to leave for my Covid vacination (a day that brings relief to almost everyone) .. So out of the gate and off for a walk like Hairy McCleary from Donaldsons Dairy (if that is lost on you then you missed out reading Julia

Everything becomes a metaphor for child learning, programs or some form of development.   So let’s

Looking like a strange cross between a scifi landscape and a warehouse a skateboard park takes a whole lot of thought. They don't scribble a sketch and build some random hills. The curves are calculated and connected from the angles to the run off!   There is something deliberate about this very expressive and creative place! Kids roll,

Most of us have heard of the concept of Long term athlete (player) development. As part of this there has been a big discussion around the ideas of early specialisation. Should a player choose one sport and stick with it or play multiple sports to develop an multi-dimensional skill base. Most experts agree that from a

Woke this morning to a thread on another group. Where someone described a Kids Tennis Program as a LEARNING program! Innocent enough comment that made my heart sink. Really interested in your marketing headlines following the comments yesterday from the dynamic duo of Lara Suarez-Neves and Christina Mihaela Carare. It occurred to me that while we
