Early elementary school age children will participate in a variety of well-structured activities to help develop basic skills. Activities will maintain a focus on fun and we will begin to test our competition skills. Children will participate in a fun and challenging multi-sport environment.
This program reinforces the ABCs of Athleticism to avoid sport specific burnout – and then turns it up a notch. These courageous learners have an increased intensity when it comes to challenges, but mostly they just love to have fun. Through a variety of physical courses, we motivate their curiosity and strengthen their fundamental building blocks that will later translate into usable life skills. Self-esteem is strongly encouraged as positive peer interaction and can foster sound ethical standards and a sense of “fair play.”
During this crucial stage of development, our young learners have an accelerated ability to increase hand and foot speed. We aim to capitalize on this now to encourage lasting results. This program also promotes a wide array of activities to encourage fun while building strength, endurance and flexibility.
It is understood that children develop at their own pace, so it’s impossible to tell exactly when they will learn a given skill. Since children have their own developmental time-table, normal range is much more important than average age. Only be concerned if children are beyond 90% of the normal range in most skills. Boys and girls differ as to when they perform certain skills. Being early or late doesn’t matter – children’s bodies perform skills when they’re ready.
