The program uses imaginative play to engage the parents and kids and introduce basic sports skills, such as kicking, overhead throws, running and stopping, chasing a ball and so on. The class provides a social setting, simple routines, and leadership from a coach to move us all through the exercises quickly; all of these contribute to learning the basic building blocks of playing sports.

Parents and caregivers can have a direct hand in a preschooler’s development through a range of Multi-Sport programs. Sportball Junior, Parent & Child and Me & My Dad programs teach children important introductory physical skills and help them develop confidence in their abilities. The programs also help adults understand proven teaching techniques that can be applied outside of Sportball classes. Classes focus on refining, rehearsing and repeating skills and playing games in a fun, creative, non-competitive environment. Classes are conducted once a week in 45-minute sessions – just the right length of time for active little minds and bodies.
