Youth speed & agility coming soon!
Early athletic movement teaches gross motor skills, fine motor skills, balance, speed, agility, hand/eye coordination, muscle development, and more.
Learning to love physical activity is beneficial for life-long health. Finding ways to make activity fun and building the basis for athletic development allows our youth to build upon these habits as they grow.
Sports have always been an outlet and a way for people to work through social/emotional skills. This class will address key topics such as respect, teamwork, empathy, self-awareness, collaboration, and more.
Whether your child is "naturally athletic" or not, this class will build confidence in basic body movements as well as prepare them for working together, following directions, and self-respect.
According to Hopkins Medical, "we do know that moderate aerobic exercise increases the amount of slow wave sleep you get. Slow wave sleep refers to deep sleep, where the brain and body have a chance to rejuvenate."
Why do it if it's not fun? Building a basis of athletic movement should be fun! This is a time to learn, to grow, and most importantly to play! Each class will prove that structured physical activity can be the most fun, building the desire to continue engaging in physical fitness, and sports.

Coach Kellie is a mom of two young children. This class became a passion project as she works through challenging her athletic children and bringing joy through family sports. Both Kellie and her husband Jonah played youth sports and competitively throughout early adulthood. Between the two of them, they create fun competitions out of simple things such as skipping rocks at the river, who can catch the bigger fish, who can venture further onto the fallen tree, etc. etc. Everything in their life is play, and everything is based on athletic movements. Coach Kellie hopes to bring that same love for activity to her students.
Kellie graduated from CSUMB with her degree in Kinesiology and is finishing her teaching credential now as she has found the ability to combine two of her joys in life: coaching and building up our youth. She has worked as a physical therapy aid for children with developmental delays and as a PE teacher.
Kellie has coached volleyball for 12 years through High Schools and through competitive club programs. She enjoys coaching all ages but has found great joy in teaching young children how to love athletic movement.
