CARD’s Little Athletes programs (typically K-2nd) feature paid coaches who create a positive, non-competitive environment. Coaches will work with players for the first 2-3 weeks to introduce the sport using basic skill techniques and formations and build confidence in each player to get them ready to play. The last 2-3 weeks will be 20-minute practices and 40-minute games each day. Skill-building fundamentals and simple game strategies will be taught throughout the program. Staff use age-appropriate equipment, modify stations and games, and are trained specifically to make sure all participants are set up for success.
A general youth sports jersey is optional but highly recommended for the program scrimmages (can be purchased at the CARD Office for $17).
