Getting Active at an Early Age

Start Smart Programs, created by the National Alliance for Youth Sports, help kids prepare to participate in sports and succeed in life. This step-by-step approach builds confidence and self-esteem and makes sports fun. Our goal is to create a positive sports experience for both parents and kids.

Benefits of Participation

  • Fun and positive first/early experience in sports
  • Prepare kids for future sports participation
  • Prepare kids and parents for specific sports
  • Parent and child spend quality time together
  • Parents learn how to support and teach their child
