Where PLAY HAPPENS
"Children Are Like Sponges Eager to
Soak Up New Skills"
Established in Waterdown Ontario in response to a lack of variety, quality, and affordable sports and sporting activities for toddlers and preschool-aged children, Sport Kidz was born.
At the time of development Katie had a 5 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. When her son had been a toddler he struggled physically due to an aliment at birth. He walked late and struggled with simple tasks such as running and jumping. When her son was 2 years old and Katie and her husband looked for an sporting activity to introduce him to, it became apparent that there was a real lack of variety in sporting options for young children.

Sport Kidz is a program designed for toddlers and young children to learn the basic fundamentals of sport and exercise in a fun and kid-centered environment.
Our program is focused around giving children a fun and rewarding introduction to sport so that they will find enjoyment in play and healthy living for years to come.
We have 3 different classes that are specifically tailored to different age groups of children. No matter what age group your child falls into, our core principles remain consistent.
Sport Totz - ages 1.5-2.5 years
Sport Kidz 1 - ages 2.5-3.5 years
Sport Kidz 2 - ages 3.5-5 years
"He's Tried Other Programs with Limited Success"
"Sport Kidz is the highlight of my son's weekend. We've done multiple sessions and he can't wait to attend every week, we'll keep coming back in the future. He's tried other programs in the past with limited success but Coach Katie's well organized and routine oriented classes have been a hit from the start. We continue to recommend the program to other friends in the area!"
"It's a Serious Highlight of Their Weeks"
"We're on our second time through the Sport Kidz program - we loved it so much the first time we just had to come back! The coaches are excellent and work hard to make each class exciting, and do a fantastic job making sure all the kiddos are engaged and learning. My kids love coming, and look forward to it every Saturday. It's a serious highlight of their weeks! It's great to watch them try (and master) new skills in such a fun and kid-centred environment. Thanks for running such a great program!"

COVID 19 SUMMER PROGRAM OFFICIAL UPDATE!
Hello Sport Kidz Community!
First of all, we hope this email finds you well. We want to keep our families updated and informed as we navigate through this new "normal" that we find ourselves in. The focus at Sport Kidz has always been fun and wellbeing, but our focus now has had to shift to one of safety - for our students, our parents/grandparents, and our community as a whole.
Since the middle of March, the situation surrounding Covid 19 has been changing and evolving day by day and even hour by hour. In late April Sport Kidz had to make the decision to cancel all of our indoor spring sessions running until the end of June.
During this time, it had always remained our hope that a summer outdoor program for July and August would be possible, even if the dynamics of it had to be altered.
Our outdoor program is near and dear to us for many reasons. There is nothing more "summer" than seeing children playing with soccer balls, playing catch, chasing bubbles and running around outside - and our summer Sport Kidz aimed to capture those true childhood joys each year. During our outdoor classes the children try out new and different sports that are not usually a focus during our regular indoor sessions.
We have been monitoring the situation daily and keeping up-to-date with all governing bodies including the Provincial Government, Soccer and Baseball Ontario, public health and the City of Hamilton.
As of mid May the City of Burlington decided to cancel all City run summer programs and the City of Hamilton followed suit on May 25th. All field bookings are cancelled up until July and sports fields remain closed for permitted activities. As the Province reopens in stages, it is still unclear as to when certain activities will be given the green-light to resume. We can assume at this time that large group activities, and the gathering of multiple families for any organized sporting activity in which equipment is shared will not be permitted in the near future. At this time we feel the responsible thing to do is to officially cancel our Summer 2020 Outdoor Sport Kidz Programming as we support all precautions taken for the safety of our children and our community.
To those families that were looking forward to spending your summer with us at Sport Kidz, we apologize. This is a tough decision and we will miss seeing all of our students run around in the sunshine (and get distracted by the Ice Cream truck!)
For any family who was registered for the Spring Indoor program and chose a credit instead of a refund for your registration fee, please note that your credit has no expiry. This credit will be good for any future program once we are given the green light to begin classes again. If you have any questions around your credit or classes in general please reach out at any time.
The Ontario government is slowly opening in stages, which we realize is a step forward to us being able to run classes again. Once gathering size and physical distancing requirements are announced we will be reconfiguring our programs for what we hope will be a September 2020 start!
We understand that this period of isolation is very difficult for everyone and despite our classes not running, please know that we are still here for you and your children! Reach out to chat, have us send a video message or birthday message to your child anytime. We also have a series of at-home classes on our YouTube Channel that can be accessed anytime to be done from home.
Thank you again for your continued support of our Sport Kidz program!!
We hope to see all of you again soon! Stay safe, stay healthy and get outside as much as possible to enjoy the summer!
