The phone rings. Michael Clark picks it up. "He made it," the father of one of Phenom Baseball Academy's students exclaims over the line. "He made the team." Michael, a former pro-baseball player and current local scout for the San Diego Padres, has received this call from many parents. He started the academy after his time as a high-school coach put him face-to-face with numerous youth players who would try out for his team and clearly struggle, suffering from a lack of sound fundamentals. Michael and his group of seasoned coaches lead their group and individual training sessions inside a 4,700-square-foot training facility, which is furnished with quality field turf and three batting cages. During sessions, players aged 8–18 years old move about the expansive field, hitting, catching, and throwing under the guidance of up to four instructors. Parents who want to watch can do so from the upstairs viewing area, which positions them safely away from flying balls and the catcher's hand-signal requests for a juice box.

The Louisville Equestrian Center is the realization of a childhood dream for owner, operator, and adept horsewoman Betsy Webb. Now found in the familiar confines of the Red Barn Arena, the center is home to a team of dedicated staff members and instructors. Nestled less than 20 minutes from Louisville in the rolling country hills between Taylorsville and Mt. Washington, the arena provides a picturesque setting for private and group lessons for all ages and experience levels. During these sessions, trainers illuminate horse-handling and riding fundamentals with the help of the center's stable of horses. Camps and clinics engage equestrian youngsters aged 4 and older, and pony parties entertain kids with experiences more rewarding and memorable than trying to ride a pile of My Little Pony action figures.

During the Republic Bank Big Hit 1/4 Marathon, runners and walkers loop through Louisville, chugging past Main Street landmarks before sliding headfirst into the finish line at Louisville Slugger Field’s home plate. Spectators, musicians, and specialty groups line the 6.55-mile route, cheering on participants and shoveling coal directly into their mouths. At the post-race festivities, every participant dons a finisher’s medal, the speediest runners also receiving an engraved Louisville Slugger bat. A portion of the proceeds from the race—and its sister half-marathon, taking place simultaneously—go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana.

A reading specialist with decades of experience, Candace Meyer couldn't stop wondering why some kids have trouble in the classroom, while others excel. She noticed, however, that many of her struggling students shared the same difficulties: poor balance, lack of rhythm, and difficulty with visual tracking. To her, these symptoms all pointed to one root—the inner ear.

Meyer's research led her to establish connections between inner-ear functionality and learning ability in children. It also inspired her to found Minds-in-Motion, an organization that combines brain training with movement more safely than hosting lectures in the middle of a football field. The company's specialists create customized programs for each student based on assessments that measure sensory and motor skills. By helping children to develop both types of skills at the same time, Minds-in-Motion encourages them to succeed in school and life.
