“Everyone involved centered their attention on helping the children achieve success and confidence.” - parent
Our goal is to teach sports in a fun environment and to inspire kids to want to play sports. We believe that each child can learn to play by adapting activities to their ability level. Exceptional volunteers are the key to a great program and we try to keep a high volunteer-to-participant ratio, often 1:1. Our volunteers provide encouragement and work closely with the participants on basic skills like dribbling, shooting baskets or volleying a tennis ball over the net.
