Ready. Set. Playsports!
How It Works
Playsports program has four stages: Freshman, sophomore, Junior and Senior. Each stage consists of five levels. Each level is eight weeks long. Children can join at any point and will be brought up to speed by the coach so they're comfortable participating with their friends.
Learning. Cleverly disguised as fun!
Teaching children to be healthy and active is no small task, so all Playsports lessons are carefully planned out. There are three components to every class:
This part of class warms up the muscles and gets the children focused on the activities to follow.
A Series of Skills
For example, one of our games is the Dani the Dinosaur Grocery Store Game. This game teaches the children about healthy food choices while encouraging them to be creative and use their imaginations. To begin, the coach scatters three large hula hoops across the floor. Each hoop contains items that represent healthy foods. For instance, orange cones are carrots, beanbags are grapes and tennis balls are apples. The children run around the hoops until the coach blows the whistle indicating they should freeze in place. The coach then gives an instruction such as, “one carrot.” Each child picks up a carrot and places it in a fourth hoop (the shopping cart). The game continues until all items are in the cart.
Young children feel most comfortable and at ease in small groups so we limit our class sizes accordingly. Small classes give the coaches the opportunity to give the children one-on-one attention.
The classes are limited to no more than 8 children.
All classes are 30 minutes.
Classes are held at your child's school once a week, four times a month on the same day and time.
Each school will provide that information.
We accept credit card payments.
The Playsports program is taught just about anywhere, from the playground, to the gym, gross motor room or the activity room.
All Playsports coaches love teaching children and share our passion for creating a healthier, more active generation. Each coach has undergone extensive training in the Playsports program and attends continuing education seminars quarterly.
All coaches have the necessary documentation required by each state. The schools also have a copy of the coaches documentation.
All Playsports equipment is age appropriate. It is made with child-friendly, softer materials and is designed for use by small children to ensure their safety.
