Youth Sports Programs

A variety of introductory youth sports classes are offered throughout the year for kids ages 3-12. 

You won’t see competitive skill drills in these programs, but you will see teaching methods designed to create an atmosphere that is effective and fun. You will also see happy, confident, sweaty kids who are eager to learn and want to keep coming back for more. Coach Robin emphasizes teamwork, integrity, accountability, playing fair, taking turns and good sportsmanship. Whether your child is just beginning or already has a love for sports, these programs offer a place for children at every level. 

Programs Offered Include: 

  • Soccer (ages 3-6)
  • Totally Tee-Ball (ages 3-6)
  • Run & Play (ages 3-6) 
  • Basketball (ages 4-12) 
  • Gaga Ball (ages 3-6)
    • A fast paced, high-energy sport played in an inflatable, octagonal pit. The more players the better! Dubbed a kinder version of dodgeball, the game is played with a soft, bouncy ball and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping while trying to hit opponents with the ball below the knees or waist. Players need to keep moving to avoid getting hit.
  • Floor Hockey (ages 3-12) 
  • Multi-Sport (ages 4-12)

And More!
