Swot was initially developed in 1985. I felt very motivated following Australia's success at the World Team Squash Championships, when one of my students, Chris Robertson, became World Junior Champion.
Swot was pilotted for one year in primary schools as a 90 minute rackets sports program, and was an adjunct to the Sports Commission initiative, Aussie Sports. Many sports developed modified rules and equipment at that time encouraging kids to get involved in sport early. More than 100 videos and manuals were distributed throughout Australia and from this wide exposure many initiatives evolved.
I encourage you to embrace the concept, it is good for kids social and physical development.
Swot 20 years later
As time has passed Swot now embraces pre-school children.
Swot will give children a solid base enabling them to branch into other sports when ready. This is what Swot kids will experience:
- Fun Warm-ups that assist the development of balance and movement.
- Activities that make children laugh, and interact with other children their own age.
- Children experience success at participating in challenging games.
- Achievement builds confidence.
Range of equipment
Because Swot caters for very young children the equipment required will depend on how the game is to be used, eg

From that simple concept emerges a whole range of positives as follows.
