GUIDELINES

WHY DO WE PLAY SPORT?

We play sport for healthy recreation and enjoyment.  Children have to be active every day. Physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health. Research has shown that the importance of physical activity in children is stronger than ever.  For Eversdal, sport is much more than just exercise because it also contributes to a child’s development, both psychologically and socially.  The sport field also creates an all-important learning environment for our learners where they can learn to cope, adapt and function in a team environment.  These are all important skills which our learners will need to acquire and apply in adult life.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Eversdal Primary School is committed to providing the best sporting environment and facilities possible, so that every learner in the School is able to play the sport of his/her choice, guided by quality coaching and instruction. This commitment endeavours to provide for the full spectrum of Eversdal Primary School’s learners; for the ambitious talented sports boys and girls, to be prepared for sport at the highest level, as well as those who wish to enjoy their sport on a more social level. Furthermore, the sport coaches are committed to create an environment in which each learner is encouraged to participate in the correct manner and spirit.

EVERSDAL SPORT PHILOSOPHY 

  • The main objective of sport is enjoyment. Learners must have fun while participating.
  • Sport needs to be instrumental in teaching learners how to deal with life
  • Coaches need to make time and create opportunities for experimenting, to celebrate success, to make mistakes, to carry the consequences and to learn from them.
  • Learners are children and they do not have the experience and expertise of adults.
  • Sport is about the development of learners, coaches, educators, parents and spectators.
  • Losing a match is just as important for personal development as winning.  To lose requires emotional control and constructive thinking.
