The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) will be awarding six communities its sports development program package, valued at $410. The program contains our complete six weeks of motor skill development curriculum and enough equipment to serve a program of 20 participants (parent and child). 

Start Smart is designed to develop sports skills of 3- to 5-year-olds in your communities prior to them entering your leagues.
