Austin is an ideal place to raise children. The capitol city of Texas is loaded with fun options the entire family will enjoy. Whether you’re into a stroll in the park, a hike in the hills, or a day playing your favorite sport Austin is the place to be.
Sportball is a fantastic option for children between the ages of 16 months and 12 years. Sportball’s special methodology is designed to help children develop socially as well as physically. This unique, skills driven, high energy curriculum is designed to reinforce self-confidence free from the pressure of competition. Children learn while having fun.
Sportball Multi-Sport programs introduce children to the fundamental concepts and skills behind eight popular ball sports: baseball, football, basketball, volleyball, hockey, soccer, tennis and golf. Using creative instruction and positive encouragement, the programs focus on the development of gross motor skills.
Children use age appropriate equipment which is just their size. Sportball offers weekly classes that are run seasonally, as well as camps and clinics during school holidays. Birthday parties and special events can be arranged to fit the family’s schedule.
Sportball programs are available throughout Austin in neighborhoods, schools, daycares, private clubs, parks and other green spaces. Programs are also available in surrounding areas such as Round Rock, Cedar Park, and Lakeway. Sportball Coaches stand out for their training, enthusiasm and ability to connect with the children in their programs. Each member of the coaching team has been carefully screened, selected and trained. Many Sportball coaches have a background in Early Childhood Education, Sports Administration, Occupational Therapy or Kinesiology. They are certified only after completing intensive training in the Sportball methodology and successfully passing a rigorous Mentorship Program. The passion these coaches share for working with children helps to create an environment that is all about skills and fun!
