Pintsize Sports & Soccer- A perfect introduction to pre-school and elementary kids to a variety of sports in a positive and fun environment! Students learn the basic skills of soccer, hockey, basketball and tee-ball in Monday Pintsize Sports classes, while the Saturday soccer classes will focus on individual and team skills only. Both programs consist of warming up, stretching, and skill drills focusing on individual and team play. Your child will gain improved fitness, agility, stamina, and coordination. All equipment is provided.

Rally Obedience-Learn the AKC sport of Rally, where dog and handler work together to complete a course of stations that require teamwork and precision.  This 6-week course will introduce you to the station signs and teach you the skills needed to successfully compete in this AKC event.  This is a great way to build obedience skills and develop a stronger relationship with your canine companion.
