Kids Elite is the premier summer program providing an array of recreational and competitive sports including basketball, soccer, kickball, badminton, tug of war, flag football, wiffle ball, swimming, board games, and much more.

Kids Elite provides an excellent foundation for your child’s development through individual and team sports. These “FUN” filled activities have been crafted to help your child develop essential motor skills to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Most of all, they will have a deeper appreciation for physical activity and sportsmanship, plus an ability to bond with peers and teammates.
