At the age of 2 years your child will begin to learn important skills as he/she begins to socialise, interact and co-operate with other children.

In Actionball the term Social skills is based on the following criteria:

  • Co-operation in play
  • Sharing with friends
  • Waiting and Taking turns
  • Abiding by the rules of a game
  • Negotiation
  • Winning and Losing

(These are skills some adults could well do with !) At about 5 years your child enters a very interesting stage of social play as his/her unique character becomes apparent. He/she may be a leader or a follower. Sportsmanship start playing a role as these are the grounding foundation stage.
