PhysWell Kids (K - 8th Grade)

Our goal is to build strong people that are able to adapt and are prepared for all situations that they may engage in throughout life. This level of preparedness is only possible through both physical and mental training. Our coaches are trained in structuring a training session to challenge each athlete, and are trained on how to speak and direct athletes to achieve these goals.

PhysWell Kids is about providing a safe environment for youth to experience physical fitness with credentialed trainers.  The program will differ from other organized activities (sports, dance, etc.) in that we focus on the individual youth’s overall well-being.  What this means is that we will de-emphasize the need to win (professionalization), though a healthy form of competition will be part of the program.  And, over-glorification of the go hard or go home (intensity) mind-set.  

Rather than equating youth fitness with increased work capacity, we believe that youth fitness should center on increased physical capability.  For this reason, our bullseye in youth training is Physical Literacy - ability to interact with any environment and is characterized by the physical competence, confidence, motivation, as well as knowledge and understanding, to pursue and master the broadest possible range of physical activities throughout a lifetime.

We will leverage a learning system that appeals to the over 70 different learning system schemes.  Primarily we will be teaching through Visual, Aural, Verbal, and Kinesthetics.  Secondarily, we will also appeal to the Logical, Social, and Solitary learning styles.

Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
We will focus on movement through Explore (experimentation and discovery) + Express (movement skills through practice and play).  

4th - 8th Grade
We build upon Explore + Express by creating competence and foster mastery.  We will leverage natural increasing speed of physical height and weight along with psychosocial maturation.
