Start Smart Sports Development Program

The Start Smart Sports Development Program was the first developed by the National Alliance for Youth Sports. The skills are not specific to any one particular sport. Skills learned and developed in this program will benefit the participants in a variety of sports. The popularity of this program led to the development of the sport-specific programs now offered. If you are new to Start Smart, offering this program is a great way to get your organization involved.

The Start Smart Sports Development Program is a developmentally appropriate introductory sports program for children 3-5 years old. The program prepares children and their parents for organized sports in a fun, non-threatening environment. Age appropriate equipment from Franklin Sports® is utilized in the program. Sports skills developed in this program are: throwing, catching, batting and kicking.
