In the active zone there will be multiple spaces for activities to be demonstrated and to participate in.  We’ll schedule regular demonstrations and opportunities for kids to join in your activity throughout the day. The spaces will be small versions of the real life playing field.  We’ll have a small court with a netball ring, one with a basketball ring, a space for gym mats for tumbling exercises, and two interchangeable field spaces. We are excited to showcase activity providers that will be offering fun things for kids to try all day long while parents can watch and chat to the organisers.
