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.

I love that we provide children with a fun, active and social activity that keeps them healthy and builds their confidence.

I’ve been at Little Big Sport for almost a year now.
Growing up within a soccer family and watching my older brother play from such a young age it was almost inevitable that I would grow to love the sport myself. I have lived and breathed soccer for most of my life starting at the age of 8. Life now consists of soccer, soccer, soccer. I play for Broadbeach United under 23s squad in the FQPL1 division.

Coach Hayley

Gold Coast

Hi my name Hayley! 
My biggest passion is seeing kids discover their own interests and helping them gain the skills they need to succeed in a fun atmosphere. My background is actually in teaching preschool dance, however, I have played soccer myself throughout my high school years and university. I’ve also studied various areas including human development, functional anatomy, physiology and psychology. 
Growing up playing a variety of sports has given me so many valuable skills such as sportsmanship, determination and being able to work as a team but most importantly it has given me friends for life. Being able to help create that environment for other kids is why I love coaching.
