Track and Field

The SPORTS PLUS Track, Field, and Fitness Program is an innovative program that focuses on fitness and related training techniques and track and field events.  It will provide a memorable, fun, and exciting experience both for beginners and for those with prior experience.

The classes have been specifically devised by experienced runners and trainers. They will be lead by subject area experts and by veteran SPORTS PLUS staff members. Each class will begin with the whole group working on various speed, agility, plyometric, quickness and fitness drills. The goal of the drills is to improve body awareness, mechanics, performance and fitness levels. The classes will then be broken into small groups where they will learn and focus on a variety of track and field events. We will establish a base level in each event for each child and then track their individual improvement as the season progresses. The season will conclude with a mini-Olympics and medal ceremony.

Soccer

The SPORTS PLUS soccer program features unique skill development techniques, highly trained coaches, special education professionals and parent and sibling involvement. Teamwork, social skills and sportsmanship are stressed at all classes.

Each class finishes with a game designed to be enjoyable and successful for all participants. Player to coach ratios are maintained at no higher than 3 to 1. The same coaches are present at all sessions to create a consistency that encourages a connection between players and coaches. The program encourages the participation of typically developing siblings in each class to allow siblings to play together and act as role models. It will culminate in a medal ceremony for participants celebrating their continuing progress in the session.

The SPORTS PLUS model permits challenges to be provided to players with a wide variety of skills. The end result is a successful, rewarding and exciting physical and social experience for children and their families.

Swimming

The SPORTS PLUS swim program features a blend of traditional and unique skill development techniques, carried out by experienced instructors and their assistants who are backed by special education professionals.

SPORTS PLUS offers one on one private lessons. Group lessons are offered upon approval. Also upon approval, we offer a one hour swim team environment for those that are ready for a more endurance based practice.

Our staff is fully capable of accommodating children with a wide variety of swimming skill levels. Whether the initial goal for your child is comfort and safety in the water, acquiring basic swimming skills, stroke technique and improvement or swim team training, SPORTS PLUS has a class for you! Fun, proper technique, social skills and safety are stressed at all classes.

Each class features customized instruction that is designed to be enjoyable and successful for all participants. The same instructors are present at all sessions to encourage a connection between participants and instructors. Typical siblings are also encouraged to enroll. The end result is a safe, successful, rewarding and exciting physical and social experience for children and their families.
