[My son’s] experience with Mindful Sports has been amazing!  Working with the Mindful Sports Team, [my son] has grown as an athlete and a teammate and has improved his ability to get through frustration on the field.  Mindful Sports meets each kid at their own level and guides them to be better.  It teaches how to strive to improve and win while also building a positive, supportive and inclusive team environment with positive skills for problem solving and self-regulation. 

Mindful Sports Parent

[My son] really loves Mindful Sports and we’re so happy that he found something sports related that makes him feel happy and strong (on the inside and out).

All kids are taught age-appropriate mindfulness skills through sports. Kids learn:

• An understanding of what mindfulness is

• Mindful listening, breathing, and body awareness

• How to use mindfulness skills with sports

• How to use mindfulness skills off the field

• Importance of teamwork, respect for others, resilience, kindness, and mindful leadership

Kids should wear athletic clothes and bring a snack, a lunch, and a water bottle to camp. Kids are welcome to bring their own athletic equipment, but all equipment is also provided.

The summer program will be indoors during inclement weather, at a location TBD. The location will be a short walk to Prospect Park.

Our summer program maintains at least an 8:1 ratio of counselors to kids

Sports and games will vary and rotate day by day. Kids will have choices and options during the camp day as a group to vote and decide on different sports.

We do allow select five-year olds into camp. However, they need to have attended a Mindful Sports program in the past and/or receive permission from the camp director. Please contact us at for details.
