The Start Smart Sports Development Program is a proven instructional program that prepares children for the world of organized sports without the threat of competition or the fear of getting hurt.  Parents work with their child in a supportive environment to learn the basic skills…throwing, catching, shooting, kicking, and batting for sports such as baseball, basketball, soccer, etc.  Start Smart’s goal is to develop a child’s basic interest in sports, to increase their self-confidence and to help them find success in sports, all of which can lead to a lifetime of continued fitness and health.
