All of our classes are Coached with Purpose using Sportball Methodology. All games, activities and instructions have a purpose and expected outcome. Our goal is to build your child’s confidence, competence, and Physical Literacy. Our programs target three key areas of childhood development, helping them build skills for life!

Children learn the fundamentals of eight different sports in a fun, stress-free, non-competitive setting. Multi-Sport classes keep children moving and engaged and send them home with a new skill from a different sport each class. If you’re looking for a way to give your child a well-rounded sports-base, that promotes their independence and leaves room for specialization later, look no further.

We have a booming game development industry here in Greater Vancouver, some say the digital media capital of Canada! There are a lot of roles involved in making a game but before the programming even starts, there’s an original story to be written and an entire world to visually capture. We’ll learn from the work of famous concept artists, illustrators, and designers about techniques for creating memorable characters and stories. Before we ever had video games, board games reigned supreme for immersing ourselves in fantasy worlds. Board game design will also be a big part of this class. The sky is really the limit when it comes to games, so it’s the perfect outlet for creative kids!
