For Children Ages 2-5
Go Kids introduces children to seven different sports: soccer, tennis, basketball, hockey, football, baseball and track and field. Go Kids runs year round in six eight-week terms. Each term includes four sports taught in two-week blocks, as shown in the schedules below. This structure provides the building blocks for basic skills and motor patterns. A general routine is followed during each class which allows children to become comfortable, while the rotating sports prevent children from becoming bored.
