Young athletes will learn primary skills and techniques like running, jumping, throwing, and catching. They will then learn to combine these skills like running and throwing, running and jumping, catching, and running.
After a while, they will start to develop complex skills that will further aid in reducing the risk of injury and improving performance.
As the young athlete develops increased physical capabilities, the athlete will be able to express the skills they have! The athlete becomes more physically literate!
Research has also shown that the inability to catch will reduce a child’s confidence so much that it can deter the child from taking part in over 40 different activities!
Our goal is to strengthen the community through the development of youth athletes with an emphasis on athletics, wellness, and academic excellence.
