Kav

Director and Coach

Hi my name is Kav and together with my wife Zoe, started Little Big Sport in 2011.

Growing up with a passion for sports, which developed from a young age, I always saw my future as working within the sports industry.

Whilst in high school I was chosen to represent my country in Slalom and Giant Slalom snow ski racing (snow) and also coached children in this sport. After high school I Studied Sports Education at University and have gained a number of sports coaching certificates including my Football Fedration Australia football coaching certificates.2In 2005 I began coaching children as a full time job in a variety of sports in different countries including Austria, Japan, UAE and Australia.

I truly enjoying being around children, and seeing them having fun and developing an interest and passion for sports. My belief from the start was that if children enjoy what they do, they will inherently learn along the way, hence this being the foundation of Little Big Sport. I know how much enjoyment young children can get from physical activity, so through my exposure to sports together with the enjoyment I get from teaching others, it was natural for me to become involved in a career where I can coach soccer and teach children to enjoy physical activity. 

I still enjoy coaching and try to get around to the venues as often as I can, in between working on the business behind the scenes. I coach throughout the week at some childcare centres, and can usually be found at the Robina venue on Saturdays. 

I’m very proud of how far the business has come, with over 2200 children enjoying our program each week.

Zoe

Manager and Coach

Kav and I started Little Big Sport in 2011 when our son was just a year old, and I ended up joining the team full time in 2012. I have a teaching background – initially working as an ESL teacher for children both here and overseas, and then becoming a full time secondary teacher in Brisbane. I am also a Football Federation Australia Qualified coach. 

Now I work mostly behind the scenes, but still enjoy coaching when I can. I can usually be found at a few kindies throughout the week, and at one of our weekend venues. I find coaching extremely rewarding, as soccer is a sport that anyone of almost any age can pick up the basics of relatively quickly. It is absolutely wonderful to see the little ones’ skills and enjoyment developing  over weeks and months, and it’s always reassuring to hear the positive feedback from parents and the community.

Hi there, I’m Sarah and I work in the admin team. I’ve been working at Little Big Sport since September 2021, but my love of soccer began when I started playing for Runaway Bay at the age of 12. I played all through school and then a season here and there throughout my adult life. Before starting at Little Big Sport, I spent five years traveling and living in Europe. I teach yoga on the side and love living holistic lifestyle.
