The Village of Garden City have partnered with The US Sports Institute to offer various programs since 2010! The preschool squirts programs are designed to introduce children aged 2-5 to a variety of sports in a safe and structured environment. All games and activities will encompass hand-eye coordination, balance, agility and movement – all key factors to the early development of children in sport. In addition to having a great time playing sports, children will develop social interaction and communication skills. All sports are developed through a series of games and activities designed to ensure learning and most importantly: fun, fun, fun!
