Active Start 6 mos to 6 yrs
ACTIVE START: 6 mos to 6 yrs
Kids know how much fun it is to play and move, but what they don’t know, is that they’re training for all the sports they will play later in life! That’s why Active Start classes use unstructured play – climbing, running, rolling and jumping – in our coach-led classes to develop the ABCs of physical literacy: agility, balance, coordination and speed. Kids have fun and develop social skills like sharing and taking turns, while preparing for a lifetime of physical activity.
Our Active Start classes range from fundamental movement skills to introductory dance classes. Visit our Drop-in page to learn about our drop-in program for kids 18 mos to 12 years old.
