Why 1stDownTots?

We prepare them for sports! The feedback we get from the parents of kids who have been through our program has been very enthusiastic, especially in regards to preparing them for more advanced recreational and competitive participation. We consistently hear that the kids go into the early stages of programs as being very advanced compared to the other participants.

Our Sports Classes

Classes meet once per week. Each class lasts 50 minutes. Classes are positive and non-competitive!

Equipment

All equipment is provided.

Class Attire

Children should wear loose fitting clothing and sneakers and bring a water bottle. Please no sandals or dress shoes.

Open Enrollment

New participants are welcome to join anytime for prorated cost. Prorated costs are calculated by the number of classes left in the session and NOT by the number of classes a customer can attend.

Drop-Off Policy

Our programs are not drop-off classes. Parents or caregivers of all participants must stay on-site during classes in case your child needs assistance.

Siblings

Younger siblings are welcome to observe the class but for safety reasons we cannot allow these younger children to walk and crawl around the field and play with equipment in the same area as the class. If you wish, you may ask the instructor for some equipment for the child to play with in another area where classes are not being conducted. Older siblings are welcome to watch but due to the focus and attention required in these classes we may not allow them to participate in the class in any manner. This is also to prevent injury to the participating children.

If you have siblings that you'd like to enroll in a program together, we offer a sibling discount of 20% off the regular price tuition. This discount is applied to prorated tuition, too.
