This program offers an Introduction to the ABCs of Athleticism – Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed. We also pay close atthention to the child’s social and emotional development to provide a well-rounded experience.
Three- and four-year-olds have an emerging sense of independence and truly enjoy being active. By building trusting relationships, our instructors will support our young learners’ developing self-concepts and self-esteem by talking with them about their actions and accomplishments and by always showing respect for their feelings and cultures. Through appropriate physical challenges, our program will guide the children to interact with each other by showing respect, responsibility, fairness and caring. Our National Team instructors will support the children as they develop these life skills, with the expectation that they will become successful learners and athletes.
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.
