After School Programs for Kids
Mindful-Sports After School Programs are for children ages 3-12. Offered sports are baseball, basketball, soccer, and flag-football. Children learn age-appropriate sports themed mindfulness alongside the rules and skills of the game. Programs are in Brooklyn. Programs take place indoors. All children will have fun and learn:
Mindful listening, breathing, and body awareness
Rules, skills, and strategies of the game
How to use mindfulness with sports
Importance of teamwork, respect for others, not giving up, and kindness
My kids (5.5 and 8 years old) are signed up for Mindful Sports this semester and I have been so impressed with Sam and his team of coaches!!! I’ve observed the primary and elementary clubs and the adults are involved, excited, using age appropriate language, and implementing a strong after school program. On the weekends my kids have used some of the breathing techniques they learned in class. They explained to me some of the things their breath can help them do; calm down, not give up, take a refocusing break. While playing board games at home I’ve overheard them using problem solving and teamwork strategies that I haven’t taught them.
I can’t rave about this program enough!!!
Sam is the real deal!!!
