WHO IS IT FOR?
"I just wanted to tell you that my daughter came home from school just GLOWING, RANTING and RAVING about what an AWESOME experience she had in your class! That was her very first experience with this and I was THRILLED to see just how enthusiastic she is about it.
Just wanted to share our enthusiasm and happiness with you . . ."
"I simply CANNOT express how thrilled we are with your class . . . already!
My kids got home yesterday and wanted to teach me. They made connections they have seen me do. My son told me about the ball and breathing (we really work with him on using his breathing to calm down and be aware of his body - he is quite the spirited one)."
Catherine will miss Coach Brandon! It is amazing to see how much she has learned from Playball the last 2 1/2 - 3 years.
We recommend Playball to all of the new parents – it is an amazing program!
WHAT MAKES PLAYBALL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SPORTS PROGRAMS?
Playball is not just another ball program. It is a highly specialized program, created by, and continually updated by sports experts, occupational therapists and education specialists. By giving children competence in sports, we help them develop skills that are not associated with sports at all. Playball has proven itself in many countries over the last 25 years and is recognized as a unique and invaluable sports coaching program, with tens of thousands of children in the USA, Holland, Switzerland, UK, South Africa, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Mexico, Doha and Israel benefiting from the many rewards of the Playball program.
HOW DOES PLAYBALL HELP CHILDREN?
We use the medium of sports not only to improve gross motor development, increase concentration skills, build low muscle tone, teach competence in hand-eye/foot-eye coordination, and improve balance; but the sport is also used to teach basic, yet essential life skills. At Playball, your children will learn persistence, courage, cooperation, respect, positive relationships, self-worth, communication, responsibility, and countless other attributes. We address the needs of the whole child – dealing with the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical. We will help on the sports field by helping your child develop a level of physical competence and team work that will give them an advantage on the sports field. Our kids sports program is comprehensive with your child actively participating in up to 210 different skills.ENROLL
