New Sport Explorerz Program

The north Edmonton community leagues of Kilkenny, McLeod, Northmount, Evansdale, and Lago Lindo have joined forces to create the new Sport Explorerz program to help 3-5-year-old children acquire and practice basic movement and sports skills in a fun and engaging way. It’s the perfect pre-sports program and you can take it within your community.

Let’s face it… most 3-5-year olds just want to have fun! Sport Explorerz is not a sport, but rather a fun way to get an active start in physical activity in ways that enhance coordination, foster new social skills and build confidence by engaging in fun physical activities. Sport Explorerz is accessible to all types of children with the focus on fun! Children will learn fundamental skills that will serve them in multiple sports. Active Start and Fundamentals are the physical literacy stages of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model across all sports (canadiansportforlife.ca). In short, children will learn the skill fundamentals that will help them be successful in any sport and help encourage them to start today on an active lifestyle that will last a lifetime.

Steve Nash didn’t start playing basketball until he was 12-years-old. He played soccer, tennis and hockey in his early years. Wayne Gretzky couldn’t wait for spring so he could play baseball and lacrosse, his summer sports passions. Many coaches actively seek out athletes with multisport backgrounds. It’s now becoming clear that early specialization in a sport can be a disadvantage instead of an advantage when it comes to success. Single sport athletes are also 70-90 percent more prone to injuries (retrieved January 11, 2016 from https://www.premiersportpsychology.com/sport-psychology/to-specialize-or-not-to-specialize-assessing-the-risks-of-playingonly-one-sport/).

Whether you think your child is the next Steve Nash or Wayne Gretzky, or if you simply want to help your child develop a healthy, active lifestyle, Sport Explorerz may be just what you have been looking for. Sport Explorerz will be led by trained leaders in a way that will give all kids the “power to move” in sport and in life. Parent participation is required.

Programs start May 1 and will run weekly for eight weeks. Fees are $50 for the summer session. Volunteer service is required. Sign up at the community league sports registration days at the following community leagues: (check websites for times and additional dates):
