This sports sampler is intended to give participants the opportunity to get a taste of every sport while also making it fun for a sport specific athlete. Participants will be grouped by grades and will complete a circuit, spending time at each sport. Statistics have shown that kids who play multiple sports tend to do better in school, play sports longer through their youth years, and have more fun without getting burnt out from one or two sports.
