Sports Class | Ankeny Parks & Rec

A few weeks ago, Jordyn started a weekly sports class call Smart Start through our local parks & rec program.  For the locals, it's offered a few times a year and you can find the details in the brochure they mail out.  It was $25 {for residents}, and 3-5 year olds meet every Sunday for 1-2 hours.  
I will admit, after going to observe last week, it's a very  parent-led program {boy am I glad Adam offered to do this with her--she wouldn't have gotten any sports skills from me--haha!} Each parent works with their child independently {at their own pace} on basic skills that the program has setup. I will say, she has improved over the weeks.  Plus, she has fun, which is most important!  

Throwing...



Catching...



Batting...





And Kicking {& running}...
{her favorite & definitely her best skill.  She has great footwork for a 3 year old}

*None of these places have any clue who I am or what this little blog is.  I pay for our entrance/membership like any other customer and blog only my honest opinions.
