All Seasons Sports Academy's massive indoor arena helps athletes of all ages strengthen their bodies and hone their skills in field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, baseball, softball, and football. At any time of year, a qualified and experienced staff coaches youth soccer players on the indoor turf field, helps pitchers shave down their ERA on the fully retractable pitching and hitting tunnels, and teaches the perfect swing technique during golf clinics. Kids and student athletes learn teamwork skills and accomplish personal goals during youth sports camps, and adults burn calories and build muscle during Zumba and self-defense classes.
Maplezone Sports Institute has a straightforward mission: creating a safe training environment for athletes of all ages. It's not as simple as it may sound, though?for one, it requires a lot of real estate. The Institute contains tens of thousands of square feet of training space, between the Academy building, the Fieldhouse building, and currently-in-construction Sports Village. Within the space, they have a skilled set of expert coaches overseeing one-on-one or small group lessons in baseball, softball, lacrosse, and soccer. In addition to teaching the specific techniques needed to play the sports, such as ball-handling, bat swinging, and victory dancing, the coaches help their clients to both get stronger, move faster, and feel better.
The three fun centers give energetic cubs a place to stretch their legs and giggle their lungs out by housing a variety of amusing, aerobic activities. Roller skaters twirl and glide during International Sports Centre's and Deptford Skating's public skating hours, turning ordinary weekend afternoons into carefree roller romps. Feet ditch roller skates for socks inside FunZone, a multilevel maze of nets, slides, and monkey bars that spurs boisterous rounds of lava tag. Adventure Alley also occupies lively limbs, this time with bouncy inflatable playgrounds, such as Roo's giant slide, a popular alternative to doing algebra on a trampoline. Only children ages 10 and under are allowed in FunZone and Adventure Alley.
Justin Smith's athletic resume is pretty impresive. He's a three-time NCAA champion, and recipient of 2005's Division III player of the year award. He's a Major League Lacrosse player for the New York Lizards, Chesapeake Bayhawks, and Philadelphia Barrage, with whom he won two world championships. While all these achievements summarize Justin Smith's lacrosse career, they leave out one of the most important parts: teacher. During private and semi-private sessions at Annapolis Lacrosse Lessons, Justin draws on his pro skills to nurture the sport's budding talents. Through a series of intensive drills, he helps students refine their stickwork, master dodging defense, and boost their speed with a host of teaching methods, including using a radar gun or having students study tapes of old road-runner cartoons.
The perfect weapon to stave off a boring afternoon, Maple Sports Arena invites visitors to zip around its inline skating rink, hit up the arcade, or explore its indoor jungle gyms. Kids can glide around the rink during open skate before refueling at the snack bar with personal pizzas and sodas. After that, they're welcome to swap out skates for sneakers to conquer five-story Marple Mountain?a technicolor climbing landscape that's littered with ropes, obstacles, and ladders?or head to the indoor rock wall to conquer vertical space and claim the wall as your own with your family's flag.
