Kids catch cognition, confidence and coordination by catching a ball

Playball Australia is a sports-based school-readiness program that seeks to impart social skills, resilience, hand-eye coordination, concentration, confidence, life skills and cognitive skills, all via the magic of playing with balls!

Tammy Ceppi is the Australian ballmaster, corralling the teams of organisers that visit preschools and primary schools to lead the activities, which are designed for 2-8-year-olds. Ceppi is originally from South Africa, where she was a teacher. She told Education Review that Playball is currently available in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia, among other interesting points of note from our interview, which is available right here:
