If you’re like us, parents who struggle to find a safe and comfortable place for their 2-6 year old to release some energy in a structured setting, we’ve found the answer for you, Go Kids.
Adam Feldman is the founder of Go Kids and his vision and philosophy for the program revolves around his holistic view of creating a healthy lifestyle. He believes the foundation of a healthy lifestyle is built in the early years of a child’s life. Go Kids helps to create a lifelong passion for physical activity, increased confidence, improved self-image and overall preparedness for participation in school and the broader community.
Our sales and marketing mama Dianna enrolled her son in Go Kids and has nothing but positive things to say about the program.
From the very start of the class during the welcome song we were already on the move; clapping our hands, shaking our arms, stomping our feet and wiggling our legs. I immediately recognized that Adam had a passion for working with children!
About the Go Kids Program
Go Kids participants get to try four of Go Kids’ seven sports – soccer, baseball, football, tennis, track and field, hockey and baseball during each 8 week term. This structure provides the building blocks for basic skills and motor patterns. A general routine is followed during each class which allows children to become comfortable, while the rotating sports prevent children from becoming bored.
Each Go Kids class has two instructors, so the kids really do get lots of individual attention. Parental involvement is not a requirement and some parents choose to sit on the sidelines, while others are right there in the action.
Go Kids’ classes run for 45 minutes and follow a general routine incorporating gross motor skills, hand-eye/foot-eye coordination and balance activities.
We love that with Go Kids, we can introduce our preschoolers to a variety of sports before making a commitment to one. Dianna’s son looks forward to going every week and has made some great progress in each of the sports. We’re loving this program and think you will too!
