Barriers like fear of failure, high costs of equipment and passes, and lack of knowledge about local opportunities keep kids from trying action sports. Our Action Sports Explorers class is designed to break down those barriers and guide our youngest students through 6 different action and adventure sport experiences.

Class Duration: Late Aug- Early May

Ages: 3rd-6th grade

Some tuition assistance available through Niles, Hamilton, Jenison and Saugatuck Partnerships/Virtual Schools

Why Action Sport Explorers?

  • Cost effective: Explorers meet every-other week to give students an opportunity to experience a "sampler platter" of 6 different sports. We work with our partner venues to get our students the best group prices and discounts possible. All passes/most gear included in tuition price! (snowboard rental gear and skateboard helmets are not included in tuition price. See syllabus for more info)

  • Learn what you like: Explorers receive 3 1 hour sessions of each sport. This allows kids to "test run" which sports they enjoy without having to commit to an entire season or buying an arsenal of gear. The sports we cover during class are: Cable Wakeboarding, Skateboarding, Tactical Laser Tag, Snowboarding, Parkour and Backpacking Skills

  • Quality coaching: You-Tube tutorials can be helpful but there is nothing like personal feedback from an expert! Our coaches provide beginner group instruction that allows each student to progress at their own pace while learning proper technique, following progression steps and building the fundamentals to get students started on the path to success!

  • Community: Never be the loner in the corner of the skatepark again! Learning new sports with the same people all year forms tight bonds between our students (and a lot of our parents too) that often continue far beyond class!
