Play It All Sports Camp introduces young children to fundamental skills that are used in a variety of sports. By learning how to properly throw, dribble, kick, and pass a ball, campers will become more proficient movers and better athletes in the future. Campers will also get instruction in racquet skills to improve their hand and eye coordination. In addition to learning key skills, campers will also play recreational and cooperative games that enable them to work together, solve problems, and practice good sportsmanship. With instruction provided by physical education experts and elementary education teachers who understand the developmental needs of young children, Play It All Sports Camp is the ideal environment for children to have fun while learning valuable skills that can be applied to all sports.
