The Right Start...Start Smart for Ages 3-6

Start Smart Programs, created by the National Alliance for Youth Sports, help kids ages 3-6 get ready for sports - and succeed in life. It is a step-by-step approach that builds confidence and self-esteem, and makes sports fun. Instructors help kids and parents have a positive sports experience together.

What is Start Smart?

Start Smart was developed by top motor skill development specialists in the field of youth sports. Parent-child groups perform motor skill tasks that gradually build confidence in children while they are having fun at the same time.

The Start Smart Sports Readiness Test helps parents objectively measure kids' abilities. As the program progresses and children show improvement, the skill are altered so that each child remains challenged. Parents spend quality time together with their child while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports.

Benefits of Participation

  • Builds confidence and self-esteem in children
  • Fun and positive early experience in sports
  • Helps parents learn how to support and teach their child
  • Helps prepare kids and parents for specific sports
  • Helps prepare kids for future sports participation
  • Quality time together for parent and child

"Start Smart has been such a great program for both our boys! They loved participating in each sport, and some of them even twice! They really enjoyed learning the basics of each sport, playing games, and making new friends! I can't say enough about the wonderful coaches. They really care about each child and pour their time and hearts into this program! Thanks to everyone who helps with this amazing program!."
