Sports Directorate Holds Kids Summer School

Starting July 25, 2017 - Ending July 25, 2018

The Sports Directorate will commence a 7-week kids summer school from Tuesday, 25th July, 2017 to Friday, 1st September, 2017 at the University of Ghana Sports Directorate. This is the second year running after a splendid edition in 2017.

All Staff of UG are invited as a big discount awaits UG community.


The rationale for the Sports Directorate Kids Summer School (SD-KSS) is to imbibe in the kids healthy living and promote swimming and Taekwondo sport skills at a tender age. The SD-KSS also affords the kids to distress and do some extracurricular activities entirely different from what they usually do in school or at home. The parents can still go on with their daily activities as if their kids were in school.

Sports Directorate Commitment to Healthy and Quality Life

The Sports Directorate through its programmes is very committed in providing quality services and building a culture of exercise and training to keep its clientele (across all ages) healthy and strong to contribute to the community and themselves.


The summer school for kids entails Swimming, Taekwondo, Cross Fit and Training Games. The programme starts at 9:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. The age category for the lessons is between 5 years and 15 years.

Preparation and Safety

Mr. Daniel Opare Okyere, Head of Fitness and Wellness Unit of the Sports Directorate, is happy about preparations so far, thanking management of the Sports Directorate and also upbeat of an improved summer school this year. He assures parents and guardians about the safety of their wards and entreats parents and guardians to enroll their wards this year to give the kids a different variety and spice to their vacations.

The cost of the program is highly subsidized for UG community members to make it affordable and increase mass participation by all.
