Welcome to Munchkin Sports – gently introducing children to sport
Munchkin Sports was started in the United Kingdom in 2012 by Joe Ting and Tony Rolfe. It was born out of an idea by Joe who spent many Sundays down his local rugby club coaching mini-rugby. He realised that there were a great number of younger siblings out of the age range catered for by the club but wanted to play like their older brother or sister.
After speaking to Tony about his idea, we couldn’t see a reason why sport could not be gently introduced to the very young so that they were occupied at the weekends and at the same time were learning sport skills so that they were better equipped when their time finally came to mix with older children.
So from this Munchkin Sports was created and to date we offer over 700 children a week the opportunity to learn new skills, develop their balance, strengthen their co-ordination and agility and above all have fun! It is our intention that every child that attends one of our classes or holiday camps goes away from each class with a sense of fulfilment and having learnt a new skill that we have helped encourage development of their social interaction as well as building confidence and well-being.
