Start Smart General Program Giveaway!


The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) will be awarding five communities its sports development program package, valued at $410. The program contains our complete six weeks of motor skill development curriculum and enough equipment to serve a program of 20 participants (parent and child). 

Start Smart is designed to develop sports skills of 3- to 5-year-olds in your communities prior to them entering your leagues. Parents participate with their child as they learn kicking, throwing, batting and catching skills. This program is a great way to introduce your parents and their children to the world of youth sports in a fun, socially positive and friendly environment!
