FAST KIDS™ is a unique and exciting opportunity for your 6-9 year old child to develop their fundamental athletic skills. Fundamental athletic skills provide an essential foundation to enjoy and excel at a range of sports, from baseball to soccer, basketball to lacrosse. Your child will learn how to run faster, dodge quicker, jump higher & land safer, kick further, pass with control, throw & catch any ball and much more. Each of these skills are developed through our FUN maximum participation games, where the emphasis is on learning and having a lot of fun!
Fundamental athletic skills provide the foundation for all future sporting skill, and should be learnt before sport specific technique. Today, competitive sport is starting younger and younger, with many kids choosing one sport at too young an age. Consequently many kids are not developing their fundamental athletic skills with the following consequences:
We are passionate about kids developing the physical skills they need to enable a lifelong love of sport and physical activity, to be as good as they can be at the sports they choose to compete in, and to decrease their chance of getting hurt. So we developed FAST KIDS!
Under the guidance of SPG's Dr. Neal Bowes Ph.D., CC-AASP, we have devised a unique learning experience. The FAST KIDS program develops:
Because of this experience, FAST KIDS achieve more not only in sport, but also in school!
Each weekly session incorporates a range of athletic skills and emphasizes key FAST Minds skills and FAST Fuels topics. Each skill is developed through specifically designed FUN sport based games, with no standing in line. Individual challenges are set within each activity to fit the different ability levels in the class, ensuring every child is encouraged to work to meet their challenge and gets to feel successful when they achieve their goal.
Every child receives a FAST KIDS Diary. This unique kid friendly diary encourages independent learning from your child and provides lots of fun activities to learn more about being a FAST KID. FAST KIDS is also a partner of The Presidents Challenge (PALA+) and is recognized for developing the athletic and nutritional skills to support a healthy lifestyle.
