What is Start Smart?

Start Smart was developed by top motor skill development specialists in the field of youth sports. Parent-child groups perform motor skill tasks that gradually build confidence in children while they are having fun at the same time.

Start Smart helps parents objectively measure kids; abilities and progress. As the program progresses and children show improvement, the skills and exercises are altered so each child remains challenged.Parents spend quality time with their child while learning how to properly teach & support them.
