Children  today are over-scheduled, over-coached & under-skilled for what lays ahead. Kids are spending less time doing the very things that will make their lives happier, more fulfilling and more rewarding. We found that Play is More than “Just” Fun." It’s how we practice the key skills we need to be successful people: Critical thinking, communication, creativity, coordination and more.

 

IIf we want strong future adults and future communities, we must devote resources to bring back the lost language of play.

 We created the  Powered By Joy Development Model--creating an elegant and intuitive pathway for kids, not just in soccer, but all sport and perhaps all disciplines.
