Great Start: Intro to Motor Skills (offered for 6 months to 3.5 yrs old) – Players enjoy physical exploration and develop key foundation motor skills in the process. Activities include climbing, swinging, obstacle courses, interactive throwing/kicking games, balancing, rhythm, tumbling, sensory integration, and, of course, a lot of playing around and having a good time! To keep players exploring, our state-of-the-art equipment is laid out differently every class. No two classes are alike! (Guardian must be present.)
Great Play Jr: Motor Skills and Intro to Athletic Development (offered for ages 3.5 to 5.5 yrs old) – Players continue to develop fundamental motor skills – as well as introductory sport skills, coordination and agility – all while having a blast! Motor skills development includes activities such as climbing, obstacle courses, balancing and tumbling. Introductory sport skills include swinging a bat, kicking a ball, shooting, dribbling and much more. Individual games, supported by their Interactive Arena, and group games are used to explore and apply these skills.
Multisport: (offered for ages 4.5 to 10 yrs old and 3.5 to 5.5 yrs old) – Through instruction and specialized games, Players have fun mastering 24 essential skills for six sports – soccer, baseball, basketball, football, floor hockey and volleyball. The focus is on one skill per week, starting with a brief instruction period to teach proper technique using their SCORE method. A series of games are played turning practicing the skills into play with the objective of developing confident and successful kids on the field, court or playground. Two complementary sports are alternated each week for eight weeks, then they switch to two different sports.
Single Sport (offered for 4.5 to 10 yrs old and 3.5 to 5.5 yrs old) – These classes are the same as the Sport Skills Program, but they focus on only one seasonal sport a time, typically for eight weeks at a time. The program is designed to help Players quickly build skills and confidence in a specific sport – frequently used to complement a Player’s participation in a recreational league.
Great Play 50: Fitness, Athleticism and Team Work Development – 50 minutes of fun-filled directed play! It’s like Field Day, Phys. Ed. class and a birthday party all rolled into one, and provides well-rounded, age appropriate physical development in the process!
