Olympian, Libby Trickett and kids coach, Georgie Trickett will speak in Ipswich these school holidays.

School holidays are taking on a sporting theme in Ipswich with the chance to try sports, see high-profile sporting personalities and learn about fitness and wellbeing.

The fun starts from Saturday 22 June – 28 June with Play On in the Nicholas St Precinct.  From 10am – 2pm daily, kids can enjoy a range of exciting learning experiences and activities designed to boost their health, fitness, and wellbeing.

There’s also a breakfast with Libby and Georgie Trickett (Saturday 22 June) unpacking the reasons why kids and teens are dropping out of sport.  Parents can learn tips and strategies to help teens and kids navigate everything from lack of motivation and self-confidence, to difficult coaches and embarrassing parents.

Ipswich Libraries are also holding soft tip archery sessions, an Olympic-themed reading challenge, and circus skills drop in sessions.

The Active Kids team are running sports at Tulmur Place in Ipswich Central, Bob Gibbs Park in Springfield, Evan Marginson Park in Goodna and Tofa Maoa A Samoa Park in Redbank.  The sports that children can participate in include athletics, yoga, scooter tricks, netball, basketball, boxing, gymnastics and more!  The sessions are also free, parents just need to sign their kids up.

The June/July school holidays are a great time to explore the Ipswich region.  The days are warm but the morning is crisp, a great time of year to explore by hiking or biking.

These holidays children can also attend the Ipswich Art Gallery’s free program, see Dorothy the Dinosaur, go on a discounted ghost tour, pet and feed the animals at hobby farms and attend a tea brewing workshop.
