MINI BALLERS

4 to 7 years | Boys & Girls

We have developed an interactive training environment because we understand that kids at this age are just discovering sports and generally tend to lose focus quickly. Our vastly experienced coaches work closely with kids and constantly encourage and motivate them to ensure that they learn the skills in a fun and efficient manner. We believe that positive reinforcement from a young age creates the best learning environment, which then allows kids to understand the value of sportsmanship and respect for their peers while also building self-confidence.
