The Program  
The program is for boys and girls grades K - 7.  This is a non-competitive program with the main emphasis on having fun and learning positive life skills.  Program standings or individual statistics are not maintained. This program is for kids of all skill levels.  Players learn basic sport and life skills*, the fundamentals of various sports and  have fun! 

*Life Skills are learned through our Self Discovery curriculum that is taught by our Athleaders during the first 15-20 minutes of each clinic or team practice.

Our Youth Sports program has three main areas - camps/clinics, teams and tournaments.

  • Camps/Clinics
    Camps/Clinics are for beginning learners with the goal of developing sport and life skills and understanding the fundamentals of the sport - so they have the temperament and background they need before joining a team.   Clinics are generally 6 weeks and held on Saturdays.

     
  • Teams
    Once kids have the skills and understand the fundamentals of the sport they can advance to one of our teams.  The teams are formed by grade level and/or ability level.  Our Self Discovery curriculum is taught by our Athleaders during the first 15-20 minutes of practice.

     
  • Tournaments
    Some of the sports have tournaments - and teams/team players can advance to this.

Philosophy
Our philosophy is to provide an equal opportunity for all children to learn and develop sport and life skills, participate in team play, develop good sportsmanship and a have greater appreciation for the game in a safe, fun environment.
