"Parents are the ultimate role models for children. Every word, movement and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent."-Bob Keegan
Before we can become champions or enjoy casual physical activity, we must learn basic rules and fundamental movement skills so our sport technique can develop properly later. Once we gain a desire to be active, learn how to practice and have the confidence to reinforce our lessons learned, the gateway to choosing a healthy lifestyle can open up.
To ensure your young learners have a solid platform to begin their journey on, ChampFusion offers a progressive pathway for children to discover movement, listening and social skills at the appropriate time of development. Through multi-sport exposure, your youngsters will develop proper motor and listening skills that can transfer to their sport or activity of choice later in life.
Early sport specialization can seem logical at first. However, after years of research, several world renowned sports organizations have discovered that a premature focus can prove detrimental to an athlete’s long-term development (unless in early specialized sport like gymnastics). Not only does it promote unbalanced development, but it also increases the likelihood of injury and burnout.
However, if children are exposed to a variety of fun athletic experiences there are a vast array of documented physical, emotional, social and educational benefits that can last into adulthood. Statistically, children who are active from an early age are 1/10 less likely to be obese, achieve 40% higher results on test scores and are 15% more likely to go to college.
