evoL Sports

Who is evoL Sports?

Norman’s passion for children is at the center of evoL Sports, starting with his own children and spreading out to all the hundreds of children he has coached over the years.

After a lifetime of loving sports and playing everything from soccer to cricket, Norman began coaching his son and daughter one-on-one in basketball and quickly realised the impact of sports on their growth and development. As a parent, he saw that there is so much more to sports behind the scenes, as it develops children’s motor skills, social skills, self-esteem, and has many health benefits. So, Norman spent the next three years coaching basketball teams including a position at one of the largest private schools in Victoria.

Shortly after in 2013, Norman decided he wanted to commit full-time to his passion for children and love of sports. However, combining the two brought him to look at sports from a different angle—it was no longer just about the love of sports and the sporting skill, it’s about all of the amazing development and benefits that children get from sports. This new perspective was mirrored by Norman’s own children suggesting that Love Sports is a good name, but “Why don’t you do it backwards, Dad?” In that moment, Norman and his family created evoL Sports.

Today, evoL Sports has grown beyond Norman’s early dreams of doing it all himself to include a team of coaches serving childcare centres, schools, and events all over Victoria. Norman ensures that every coach on his team carries the same enthusiasm for children and focus on development that is at the foundation of his coaching.

Every childcare centre incursion, basketball camp, school holiday program, and birthday party is based on the mission to have fun and empower each and every child to live a healthier life through sports and physical activity.
