Well-Rounded Afterschool Sports Programs Near Jacksonville, FL

Every child has his or her own strengths, and we strive to offer a well-rounded approach to our sports program. Rather than focusing heavily on one or two sports, we offer a wide variety of physical activities that allow children to explore their interests and strengths. At the same time, all sports offer similar benefits to children, no matter what the focus is. We embrace the opportunity to share these advantages with your children.

Some of the options we offer in our afterschool sports program and their benefits include:

  • Gymnastics. This program offers an incredible opportunity for children to enhance their physical stamina and flexibility while also instilling confidence in themselves. Children discover a new level of self-worth when they discover they can overcome and conquer any challenge when they put their minds to it.
  • Dance. We offer several varieties of dance to our afterschool sports program students, including ballet, jazz and tap. Dance offers many of the same benefits that gymnastics does, along with enhancing coordination and rhythm.
  • Tennis. Tennis offers the opportunity to gain new sports skills while also learning how to compete graciously. Children learn how to better follow instructions while having fun in the process.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list of the activities offered in our afterschool sports program. We also have a general sports program that includes principals and techniques from various ball-based sports that encourages children to lean on each other as a team.
