Looking for sports for kids in New York? We’ve got the ultimate guide to sports and kids fitness options when it comes to classes and activities for children in NYC. From free basketball and swimming programs on offer for parents on a budget, to elite tennis academies, soccer programs, golf classes and baseball team playing experiences. There’s a youth sports program in New York for every sporting taste.
If your child wants to try something a little bit different from the sporting norm, they can give parkour, ninja and circus skills or even axe-throwing a try (duck – mom!). We also can share about the best options for ballet, jazz dancing, tap dancing, ballroom dancing and hiphop for little movers and shakers.
Does your child have athletics in their bones? Maybe they want to get a headstart on cross-country running, track and field or long jumping? Or do they just want to learn how to ride a bicycle in New York City? Or maybe they’d like to be a skateboarder? Perhaps your child would like to learn to rock climb on an indoor climbing wall, or give tumbling a go.
Whatever your child’s interests, taking up a sport will keep them healthy and fit, as well as burning off that excess energy and help them to sleep better at night, and as New York parents, who doesn’t want that?
