About the Program

Please direct any questions to Logan Kahler at 

Itty Bitty Liability Waiver - Must be completed and turned in at check-in.

A nationally recognized sports program, the Start Smart programs offered by Campus Recreation will introduce your 3-5 year old to the wide world of sports. Basic motor skills tasks help build your child's confidence and self-esteem. The environment of this program offers children a positive experience early in their sports exposure and will help to prepare them to play sports in the future. Emphasis on winning is minimal and this program allows your child to progress at an individual rate, while still offering challenging skills. Focus is also placed on parent/guardian and child interaction. Each child is required to have at least one adult who can participate.
