Sports are a part of a well-rounded child’s life. Having fundamental athletic skills is both important as a child and later on as an adult, as both team building skills and hand-eye coordination are nearly always superior in people who had played on team sports as a child. Scarborough offers a variety of sports for children! Here are the standouts.
Bounce your way to success
Scarborough Basketball Association is a registered non-profit organization with 10 years of experience. It is run and coached by volunteers, and the club has both girls and boys teams at different ages and skill levels with both house leagues and rep teams run during the season. From camps to clinics- There is always something hosted throughout the year to improve skills!
Children as young as 5 can enroll in their programs. Trainees can expect encouragement and support that’s enjoyable. Although the program accepts children of all abilities, kids who aim to play professionally may benefit most from enrolment, as an early start to hone skills is always advantageous! It’s important to note that their programs are affordable.
Participate in a classic Canadian pastime
Canlan Ice Sports offers popular programs: Their Youth 3 on 3 hockey league is a favourite among kids and parents alike. Playing helps children gain experience skating, shooting, and understanding game play, which is all overviewed by quality referees who watch over the games for safety and fairness. Players get to experience the intensity of the fast and fun world of hockey and, in addition, enrolment comes with a complimentary jersey and cap!
Just for Kicks Soccer
Just for Kicks (JK) is a soccer association large enough to have a recreational league and two all-star leagues. The all-star league is for children with greater commitment to the game. They even have a Just for Tots program for young children where parents and children play using smaller balls, which makes it easier to kick. If it’s the sport for your child, JK will meet your needs from toddler to teen. It’s a good idea to inquire early!
Swing away with Scarborough Baseball Association
Like the other high quality leagues listed, the Association has recreational levels and intermediate teams which compete in the Toronto Baseball Association loop. This fun and refreshing setup is linked to the Scarborough Stingers, so you know you’re in good hands.
For end of season celebrations and wrap-ups to exciting tournaments, we offer a wide-range of trophies. Enroll your child for their success in life!
