To help our children have the correct development, both psychologically and also physically, it’s important that they do as much sport as possible. According to the Italian Paediatric society sport is good not just for the health of children but it is also beneficial to their studies. Therefore it is the responsibility of the parents to get their children involved in some form of sport or physical activity and to get them off the couch, instilling in them from a young age the importance of physical well being. With the idea of unifying academics with sport, MIK and Palabotteghelle sport centre have created the Palabotteghelle Sport Academy, Inspired by the idea of an environment in which children have the opportunity to combine academic development alongside that of physical development. Never more than now has the motto “a sound mind in a sound body” held truer and it is upon this motto that we have based our mission, to offer all young students a new kind of academic environment, open and flexible, community based and safe, in which it is possible to practice numerous activities to help develop students to the highest standard. The activities are held in our modern structure, equipped to the highest standard where our instructors and coaches are able to follow students throughout the academic week adapting to the individual needs of each child.
The Academy was born out of a need for a controlled, flexible and safe environment in which parents can leave their children safe in the knowledge that they are being well cared for and doing something constructive in their free time. Homework, sport, English, IT and many more activities are just some of the things that we offer here at our Academy.
