Scientists are able to determine a child's diet based on chemicals found in his or her sweat, whether it's the number of fruit roll-ups consumed or how long he or she chewed on a Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card. Supply a scientist with child sweat with today's Groupon for boys' and girls' athletic programs hosted by Backyard Sports in the SUNY Purchase Main Gym. Choose between two options:
- $150 for a six-session spring baseball program (a $275 value)
- $150 for a eight-session fall basketball program (a $300 value)
Backyard Sports engages young athletes in a series of weekly skill sessions, including baseball and basketball sport camps, taught by teachers, coaches, and varsity athletes. One-hour spring baseball sessions for pre-kindergarten through 2nd-graders, which take place on Sundays from May 8 to June 19, are tailored toward appropriate skill levels. Novices learn basic rules of the game, fundamental catching and throwing skills, and how to kick dust when arguing a call. More experienced athletes can hone fielding, hitting, speed and agility, and how to interpret an endorsement contract.
Children who always try to dribble a baseball may dabble in eight one-hour basketball sessions hosted September through November. Burgeoning pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade ballers engage in basic movement and spherical-control skills, as well as receiving, defensive, and passing skills. Throughout all sessions, young athletes gain confidence, learn the importance sportsmanship, and develop winning attitudes that allow them to better determine which turtles will win races.
