The Start Smart Sports Development Programs
What is Start Smart?
Start Smart was developed by top motor skill development specialists in the field of youth sports.  Parent-child groups perform motor skill tasks that gradually build confidence in children while they are having fun at the same time.

Each Start Smart Program utilizes the Start Smart Sports Readiness Test to help parents objectively measure kids' abilities.  As the program progresses and children show improvement, the skills and exercises are altered so that each child remains challenged.  Parents spend quality time together with their child while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports.

Getting Started!
Start Smart Programs are easy to set up.  As a Start Smart Coordinator, you will help kids and parents have a positive sports experience together.  And, when you run a Start Smart program, you can generate extra revenue for your organization.

To run any of the Start Smart programs in your community, all you need is a facility and coordinator.  All of the activities and equipment needed to implement the programs are included in the Starter Kits and Participant Kits.
