Why little dribblers, little hitters or youth soccer?
Fitness made Fun
Youth athletes enjoy the benefits of a great workout that uses all their muscle groups. Dribbling,
shooting and passing are great ways to improve a child’s coordination, fine motor skills, speed
Basketball, soccer and volleyball are the perfect sports to teach a child the importance of
teamwork. Each of the players must rely on their team to accomplish their goal. Friendship and
trust is also built on the court and field.
Confidence is Built on the Court and Field
As with many most team sports our programs helps children gain confidence as they learn and
master new skills. Because practice is fun and improvement can be seen almost immediately,
youth find that hard work pays with results. With each dribble, pass, basket, kick or volley a
child’s perception of their abilities improves. With a stronger self-esteem, a child is prepared to
face the challenges of life. They learn that disappointments can be overcome with hard work
and come through with flying colors.
