Everest Academy

All Sports

The Elementary Elite All Sports program at Everest Academy is designed to develop young students into well-rounded athletes. We understand our young athletes may already be working on fine-tuning their skill set for specific sports, but we encourage them to engage in a variety of different athletic activities and games that are designed to develop transferable skills.

During our sessions, we strive to make fitness fun and teach our young athletes to work hard and be proud of their accomplishments. This program works towards mastery of the fundamental movements skills and the techniques needed to compete with confidence. In addition to these fitness and skill driven focuses, we realize the importance of social development with regards to teamwork skills and sportsmanship and aim to consistently reinforce these faculties in our student-athletes.

The Elite All Sports program also strives to prepare for upcoming Elementary SSAF sporting events. Students who are interested in competing in a variety of these SSAF tournaments are encouraged to use this program to help prepare them for upcoming tournaments. Depending on the child this could be used to develop new skills to participate in a new sport, or for extra coaching and practice before the event.
