Amazing Athletes of Durham-Chapel Hill
At Amazing Athletes, we use sports as a catalyst to meet the needs of the whole child through non-competitive, sports-based fitness classes designed to advance each child’s individual motor-skills and inspire future participation in physical activity.
Why Is Physical Activity Important?
Everyone knows that participation in physical activity keeps the body healthy, but few understand that participation in physical activity is actually a critical piece of healthy human development that affects every area of human development:
Consistent participation in physical activity, especially when starting from a young age, leads to positive attributes in all 5 areas of development listed above.
All of our Amazing Athletes programs are specifically structured and designed to provide our athletes with positive movement experiences that allow them to enjoy sports and fitness while also advancing their motor-skills so that they can confidently pursue any physical activity that interests them in the future.
What Sports Do You Cover?
Depending on the program your athlete is registered for, they will be exposed to up to 10 different sports:
Basketball | Football | Soccer | Volleyball | Tennis | Hockey | Golf | Lacrosse | Baseball | Track and Field
