IS TINYTOTS FOR BOYS AND GIRLS?

Yes it is for boys and girls, they both enjoy our activities during the classes.

WHERE IS TINYTOTS LOCATED?

We run classes in Stanley Ho Sports Centre (HKU), kindergartens, clubs, public facilities, club houses and primary schools. If you are interested in finding out about our classes locations or bringing Tinytots to your venue please contact us here. We are in 12 different venues around Hong Kong.

HOW LONG ARE TINYTOTS CLASSES AND WHAT AGES ARE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE?

The classes are one hour long with the first 10 minutes free play.
The program is designed to start at 18 months (walking to 4 years old) with children divided according to their age group.

HOW ARE TINYTOTS CLASSES DIVIDED?

The program is divided into the following sports classes:

Tinytots Soccer

Tinytots Basketball

Tinytots Mini-sports (This is the only class which has a mix of sports)

Tinytots Rugby

HOW ARE TINYTOTS CLASSES ORGANISED AND WHAT ARE THE COACH/KIDS RATIOS?

The classes are organized by age to make sure the activities are age-appropriate. The ratios vary depending on the age of the kids involved in the class. For a class with 1 coach, if the kids are 1, 2 or 3 years old, we generally have 12 kids. For 4 year olds, we generally have 12 kids.

DO PARENTS/CAREGIVERS HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CLASSES?

A parent / caregiver / guardian must be present with the child at all classes. Parents / caregiver / guardian participate in the classes for the 18 to 36months and the coaches take the 3 and 4 year old classes themselves, but a parent / care giver / guardian must still be present at the venue at all times.

WHAT TO DO ONCE YOUR CHILD TURNED 5 YEARS OLD?

Once your child has turned 5 years olds and is ready to move up he or she can join our Brazilian Football Academy which caters for boys and girls from 5 to 14 years old. Check the website by clicking on the logo:

MY CHILD IS AN ADVANCED 2 YEAR OLD. CAN HE/SHE MOVE UP TO A 3 YEAR OLD CLASS?

We appreciate that some children are more physically advanced than others but we do not allow children to move up from a parent participation class to one that is not when they are 2 years old. 3 year olds can take limited instructions but 2 year olds find it difficult, so it’s a listening and instruction issue and not a physical one. For the older age groups the coaches will recommend if the child can move up but please do not push them if they say your child is not ready.

CAN I LEAVE MY CHILD AT THE CLASS?

Under NO circumstances can a Tinytots child be left at a venue. We are there to provide a fun and constructive course for everyone. Parents/helpers/guardians can seat on the side of the hall at indoor venues for the 3 and 4 year classes but they must be on site at all times just in case of emergency.

IF THE 12-16 WEEK SESSIONS HAS ALREADY STARTED, DO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT TERM TO ENROL MY CHILDREN?

No, as long as the class is not full you can enroll at any time and the cost is pro-rated if you enroll in the middle of a session.

WHAT DOES MY CHILD NEEDS FOR THE CLASS?

For a session your child should always be in the full correct kit, enough drinking water for the session, appropriate footwear for the venue, warm clothing if cold, a sun hat if sunny, sun block if required and any prescribed medicine required for a specific medical condition.

IF MY CHILD HAS AN ACCIDENT WHAT HAPPENS?

We obviously hope not, but accidents do happen so we are prepared for them. All our coaches are all first aid qualified. In the event of an accident if there is any doubt the coaches will advise you to / or help you to call the emergency services. If your child has any underlying medical condition please make sure you let us know before they participate in any of our lessons.

DON’T THE KIDS ALL WANT THE BALL?

Absolutely, and that is why we don’t play sports matches for the under 3s. Every child in our program will have their own equipment in all small sided games during each class. This, in turn, increases their opportunities to have fun, learn and improve their skills.

AT PRE SCHOOL AGES, DON’T THE KIDS GET UPSET WHEN THEIR TEAM LOSES?

Our program is non-competitive, so all games that we play do not have a winning or losing team. The emphasis is on fun and skill-development so that they enjoy the sport and want to continue playing outside of our program once they are over 5 years of age.
