What We Do

A. Coaching Programs:

1. Swim

Currently we utilize Our Own T-Rex Pool on the Property of The Petting Zoo in Kleine Kuppe – Rietfontein Street – next to the Put-Put field

Learn to swim: We coach kids 3 years+ in a 1,3m deep swimming pool.

The group of 3 to 7 (max) kids, sits on the poolside and wait to be taken individually 2 at a time (one kid per coach)

Mornings we pick up Kinder Garten groups with our Quantum Bus.

When parents are not present, we prefer that the kids have arm wings on for protection in case they fall in while waiting.

Afternoons Parents bring kids, usually as of 3pm 

We recommend to the parents (if they are present) to look after their own kids while they wait on the pool side.

Style – Fitness Swimming: We coach all kids/adults who is swim safe, to start learning correct swim styles to be smooth and confident + comfortable in the water. This group of 3 to max 8, is safe from drowning and do all exercises together as a group with solo intervals at times. 

Styles corrected is: Free-style, Breast Stroke, Back Stoke & Butterfly 

 

2. Bike:

We coach different levels of ability and skill:

Beginners are all those who cannot ride a bicycle or even paddle in a circular motion – They are coached on the tracks close to their schools, morning Times

The Intermediate and Advanced groups are coached at Farm Windhoek IJG Trails – Kleine Kuppe, Afternoons. 

They do some off-road riding and the more advanced kids are dared to be taken onto the street (quiet streets at first) to get them acquainted with riding in traffic on e.g. events.

Most kids use their own bicycles and helmets. 

We however do have some loan bikes stored in a container, available for the kids use (those without own bicycles). 

 

3. Multisport Training & Life Skills Development:

We coach kids aged 5+ to get the hang of what Multisport & Obstacle course Training is all about. In order to get all the skills and knowledge across to the kids we also do activities called life skills Development activities. This includes anything from ball games, running, cycling, swimming, balance and coordination games, old school games, traditional games. 

We utilize our premises at the petting Zoo and the IGJ Trails Kleine Kuppe. 

B. Events Program:

Fun Day Events, Tailor made Team Building Days; Multi Sport Events; Obstacle Course Events

Every Month we host an Iron Kids Multisport event – Swim, Bike & Run or only 2 of the event legs. OR an Obstacle Course Event

Kids from age 3 + compete in these races. They swim, bike & run, or run & bike.
Or they do Obstacle Running.
