About Go Kids:

Go Kids is the Capital Region’s only exercise program exclusively designed for children. Go Kids understands that a foundation of healthy habits integrated into a child's early development will not only last a lifetime but also motivate parents and peers to live healthy lifestyles.  Go Kids offers a multi-sport program for preschoolers that teaches the fundamental of  7 different sports in a social, team based, non-competitive environment.

The Program: Go Kids for 2-6 Years Old Children:

Go Kids introduces children to seven different sports: soccer, tennis, basketball, hockey, football, baseball and track and field. Go Kids runs year round in six eight-week terms.  Each term includes four sports taught in two-week blocks, as shown in the schedules below.  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.

Go Kids' classes run for 45 minutes with 4 sports taught during each 8 week term. A routine incorporating gross motor skills, hand-eye/foot-eye coordination and balance activities is practiced during each class.

Go Kids aims to: 

  • Introduce preschoolers to a variety of sports to help guide future choices about which sports to participate in
  • Show preschoolers that physical activities are fun
  • Develop gross motor skills, coordination and correct posture
  • Teach the importance of warming-up, stretching, nutrition and hydration
  • Encourage good sportsmanship and teamwork
  • Teach children to take turns, wait in line, listen - all skills to help children prepare for school
  • Expose children to counting, numbers, colors and shapes
