Argentina?born soccer enthusiast Gustavo Szulansky opened Super Soccer Stars to provide the boroughs with a program that championed the personal development of youngsters rather than solely a skill-based focus. Since its debut in 2000, it's grown throughout the city, helping countless youngsters learn teamwork, boost confidence, and decrease arguments during home games played on the dining-room table. This rapid growth is due in part to the positive values Gustavo instilled from the first class. His coaches are carefully selected for their ability to cultivate a noncompetitive, sensitive approach to learning the game, and they dole out their knowledge in both classes and camps.
Super Soccer Star's Kick & Play program features family-friendly classes that help tots 12?24 months old develop pre-soccer skills and physical skill sets simultaneously. During classes, a team of talented and enthusiastic instructors and an athletic duo of puppet friends named Mimi and Pepe buoy budding soccer players with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and the merry clickety-clack of cleated tap dances. Designed with the help of early-childhood specialists, each age-specific class helps players build skills at their own pace with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and engaging original music.

Rather than taking up valuable loop space on his slacks, Next Evolution founder Mike Mullero displays his black belts in karate, ninjitsu do, and tae kwon do on the wall of his studio. His 30-year relationship with martial arts has led him to explore not only the self-defense aspects of each art, but also the fitness and spiritual benefits, and how they can be applied during frenzied Black Friday sales. In addition to their adult martial-arts training, Mike and his staff host yoga classes and self-defense classes designed specifically for women and children.
For many, the depths of the world's oceans and lakes are places so unfamiliar they might as well be on another planet. For the team of experienced, thrill-seeking instructors at Adventure Scuba, however, they're just another place to explore. With one of these coaches for each three to four students on a pool dive, the PADI Five-Star IDC center leads any student aged 10 years and older into the underwater world through various classes focused on hands-on instruction. A PADI open-water certification course uses the controlled environment of the center's 90 degree pool to introduce basic equipment use and techniques, giving students the skills necessary to continue their training in local waters or recreate Jacques Cousteau's bachelor party.
In the warmer months, the center also offers a range of specialty dive certifications, such as advanced and rescue diving; it also hosts year-round classroom courses in Enriched Air Diving, CPR and first aid. Though Adventure Scuba provides much of its training equipment to students at no additional cost, its dive shop sells essential diving gear by manufacturers such as Oceanic, Henderson and ScubaPro.
