BallSmarter offers players and their families a range of five different programs in a range of formats, all centered around the utilization of sport to fuel motivation and learning for STEAM subject areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. All activities are bound by developing leadership skills both on and off the field of play. The topics and activities covered develop both the physical and intellectual athlete, with takeaways aimed at the player’s school, college and home life.
BallSmarter students have the benefit of being exposed to the very best in their choice of fields; from leadership and STEAM to sport. Players and parents can be assured of two things, players will be engaged in our programs and every aspect of every activity will be directly related to sport.
BallSmarter provides a variety of one-day, weekend and week long clinics across the country for a range of different sports. Our clinics are run as daily programs for students ages 9 to 15-years-old that run from 9:00am – 4:00pm. Students arrive and depart each day.
The clinic format works best at generating interest, gaining sport mastery while being active along with an introduction to advanced STEAM concepts and exposure to introductory leadership ideas with an active implementation to all.
