addressing The problem

As parents, we have been left to guess about how sports work for young children.  

Guessing has become "the way."  It has led to  ineffective and often inappropriate teaching practices that have, in some cases, put our early learners at risk.

Get 'em started right

Getting early learners started in sports is never easy.  However, it no longer has to be a guessing game.

We see sports through the eyes of children.  We translate sports for them.  Essentially our work is bridging the gap between the unique ways early learners think and the way we, as adults, think about sports.

Instead of trying to conform young children to fit sports, we conform sports to better fit young children.
