Young Athletes is a fun way for children to stay active and establish healthy habits for the future. It is important to teach children healthy habits while they are young. This can set the stage for a life of physical activity, friendships and learning. Through Young Athletes, all children, their families and people in the community can be a part of an inclusive team.
