Another business has opened in Brookside East..this one focused on the children growing up in our neighborhood. Fox Sports & Activity Center has this goal: to engage and enhance kids' minds, bodies and spirit through holistic training.
Owner Caroline Fox explains that holistic training is 'the whole self' - meaning her classes and camps focus on not just skill training, but also nutrition, health and wellness. Here, it's not about 'winning', but about developing the skills needed for the game and building self esteem. She and her staff offer sports focused classes for kids up to age 11, teaching soccer, lacrosse, badminton, and volleyball. There are also enrichment activities for art, chess, bridge, painting and jewelry making and afternoon summer camps. Classes are kept small, with a one to five adult-child ratio.
Caroline says she's been an athlete since the age of four, and she played collegiate volleyball and softball. She has taught student development for 15 years before moving her family to Waldo to open her business. She is passionate about encouraging children to get involved with sports/fitness at an early age, as it's been proven that when kids get regular exercise while young, they will continue to be active through their adult years.
Additional plans for the Center include Parents Night Out, Mom's Day Out and other adult programs. And yes, Fox will host birthday parties with several different options and activities.
Fox Sports & Activity Center is open at 414 E 63rd St, phone is 816 895 8999. Another locally owned and operated business for the Brookside/Waldo area!
