Playgroups & Classes Harrogate

Physical Activities


Baby Mindful classes offer parents with babies aged 0-6 months a rare opportunity to take time to relax and enjoy the new growing bond between them and their baby. The new born stage is a busy and exhausting time (albeit magical of course!) and any moments for mindfulness or relaxation can be few and far between, so these classes are a great way to start to carve out a little time for calm.

Classes gently follow seven steps of relaxation; Move, Play, Stretch, Feel, Breathe, Believe and Relax (steps also used in our sister classes, Relax Kids).

But what really makes Baby Mindful unique is that we acknowledge that it’s just as important for parents to have a sense of calm, as it is for babies. It’s so easy to forget parent’s need for a pause in those busy newborn months where focus is on a hectic cycle of feeding, changing, playing, (not) napping and feeding some more, so Baby Mindful classes aim to provide for both your needs, allowing you well deserved time to ‘just be’.

Futura Futsal

Have you heard of Futsal? Why are Brazilian’s so tricky and skilful? Does your child love scoring goals?

Futsal is a super-fast, fun, exciting, small sided game which is traditionally played indoors on a hard surface. Futsal is played within a small court, uses hockey sized goals and the ball has 33% less bounce than a Football.

Futura Futsal is arriving in Harrogate starting this September.

Futura Futsal’s main aim is to holistically develop the individual through ball mastery skills, 1v1 mini games, through to 5v5 matches and most of all having loads of FUN. In Futsal players touch the ball 6x more than in football, perform 5x more shots on goal and are forced to be creative to escape from tight spaces.

If your son or daughter is 6-10 years of age and would like to give the sensational game Futsal a go, sign up for your FREE taster session by getting in contact with Tom on 07534996052 or email futura.futsal@hotmail.com.

 

Our structured pre-school sessions are fun and energetic sessions designed to help little ones find their confidence in a class setting whilst exploring the equipment. Our fun sessions help improve agility, balance, coordination, and other fundamental movement skills.

For those who want to explore and play on their own terms, we have our drop in sessions which run several times during the week – these sessions are also great as there is no booking required just turn up on the day!

The drop in sessions are £6 per child
