Elkhorn Young Athletes

Elkhorn Young Athletes provides a unique opportunity for families with children ages two to seven to have family fun and build confidence while targeting large motor skills such as walking, running, balance, trapping, catching, throwing, striking, and kicking.

Elkhorn Young Athletes is an inclusive program where ALL children (both with and without special needs) are welcome to sign up as Young Athlete participants.

Details & Dates

The program is run in station-rotation format, with five stations (8 min each) for families to visit per session. Each session lasts approximately 60 minutes.

This is a "grown-up and me" event, where grown-ups are asked to participate with their children for the duration of the program.

Once you are signed up and registered, you are automatically signed up for all sessions. Please mark your calendars with the dates and locations below. It is okay to pick and choose sessions that fit your schedule, as we know parenting/life gets busy.

Show up when you can!
