Looking for early learning sports classes?
Sports research is what guides the sports practices of athletic development and coaching. The problem is there has been lack of sports research on early learners' development and proper early learning coaching practice.
The void has led to guessing how sports for young children work. This has become "the way." It has led to less than appropriate and in some cases inappropriate teaching practices that can put early learners at risk.
the jelly bean way
Today, getting early learners started right in sports no longer has to be a guessing game. At Jelly Bean Sports, we have spent over a decade in research and practice working exclusively with early learners in sports. As subject-matter experts in our field, today our philosophies and practices serve as benchmarks of excellence for early learning in sports.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has found immaturity to have a dramatic effect on children's sports participation. Our development of the first non-competitive early learning model in sports science has helped us to bridge the "immaturity gap" that often distinguishes between how we, as adults, and young children think about sports.
Keep sports simple and making learning fun
At Jelly Bean Sports, we have done something many before us were unwilling to do. We have sacrificed the idea of impressing parents with our knowledge and expertise of long standing sports traditions. Instead, we have better imagined sports and in doing so demonstrated to them how easy it can be to effectively engage, teach and win over the hearts and minds of young children.
By seeing sports more through a child's eyes, we have been able to visualize new ways of development that more effectively work for the unique ways early learners think.
Instead of trying to conform young children to fit sports, we found it easier to rather conform sports to better fit young children.
We embrace young children's natural immaturity. Instead of it being a liability, it is seen as a tool for imagining sports differently and exploring them in simple and fun ways children love.
