Run by Stanford University's coaches' education trainer Mike Legarza and boasting a camper return rate of 90%, Legarza Basketball Camp develops young dribblers in a structured environment of positive support and fundamental basketball instruction, valuing hard work and effort. Morning camps focus on shooting and ball handling, as orb-bouncers will learn the basics of scoring and protecting the basketball. Players will be divided into teams for the week and play one game per day with a tournament at the end of the week. Afternoon camps concentrate on gameplay, as youngsters will be introduced to gamesmanship and strategy, such as when to feed the ball to the 7-footer in the post and when to feed the ball to the siberian tiger spotting up for a three-pointer.
Sky High Sports emancipates kids and adults from the laws of gravity with each jump, twist, or backflip their trampolines aid. The yellow-and-black play space features a spring-loaded frame that provides more give to jumpers, with all frames and springs covered by 2-inch-thick safety pads. To take full advantage of its unique space, Sky High hosts springy and elevated games of dodgeball and soon plans to begin Airobics, a low-impact, fat-burning workout class that helps improve balance and coordination. The expansive 30,000-square-foot center also offers private rooms for birthday parties.

Wind Over Water Kiteboarding founder Jeff Kafka tamed both wave and wind as a professional kite boarder and big-wave surfer before starting his own kite-boarding instruction school. During a two-hour beach lesson, beginners soak up kiting basics—including equipment setup, safety systems, wind theory, kite mechanics, and more—from a trained instructor while staying on dry land. Customers also perfect self-rescue, a vital skill for kite-board crashes or pickup lines gone awry. With no more than three people and one ocean in each lesson, there is plenty of individual instruction from Jeff's handpicked instructors, who get wind-whisperers in shape for the next level of instruction by the end of the two hours.
