Youth Start Smart: Welcome
Start Smart was developed by top motor skill development specialists in the field of youth sports. Parent-child groups perform motor skill tasks that gradually build confidence in children while they are having fun at the same time.
The Start Smart Sports Readiness Test helps parents objectively measure kids' abilities. As the program progresses and children show improvement, the skill stations are altered so that each child remains challenged. Parents spend quality time together with their child while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports.
49% of children do not have the basic skills necessary when they enter organized sports.
Over 70% of kids will drop out of organized sports by the
age of 13.
