Lil Athletes Sports' coaches introduce children ages three to five to activities and social interaction through fun, structured games. Children ages 20 months to five team up with similarly aged kids and experienced coaches to focus on the basics of soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and baseball. As kids become acquainted with their preferred game, they can try their hand at more complex maneuvers and team play, leading up to a real game against their fellow competitors. Not only does this approach ensure children have a firm grasp on how to play the game, it also fosters relationships with those around them and inspires them to continue playing sports as they grow. Sports trainers also host birthday parties that put the guest of honor in the spotlight while giving all guests opportunities to play in structured games.
