A Denver Sports Camp for Everyone– Skyhawks and SuperTots Sports
posted by: Mile High Mamas
Are you looking for a Denver summer sports camp for your kids?
Skyhawks Sports Colorado offers ten different sports for kids ages 4-14. Programs are designed for the beginner/intermediate athlete. Kids will learn skills taught at a level they can understand, do drills, and play fun games to practice, but the focus is never on winning or losing. The goal is for every kid to walk away with a smile on their face, wanting to learn more. What sets Skyhawks aside from their competition is a major focus on Teaching Life Skills: Respect, Responsibility, Teamwork, Sportsmanship, and Leadership.
SuperTots Sports Colorado programming is designed to develop motor skills, promote physical fitness, create self-confidence, and promote fun above all else. The goal is to help our littlest athletes learn to listen, follow directions, wait their turn – those all-important preschool skills. SuperTots offers five sports to ages 2-5. Even little ones have BIG goals!
Tori and Karl Makela purchased Skyhawks–SuperTots franchise in Colorado in 2017. They were parents first, however, with both daughters attending Skyhawks–SuperTots programs at ages 2 and 4. They wanted a short commitment with a fun environment to try different sports until they determined their favorites. Their oldest daughter just started her first league. After the first game, she said “I had so much fun even though we lost, but it doesn’t matter who won, just that we tried our best and had fun.” Proud parent and owner moment to know that the Life Skills taught in Skyhawks programs are being heard and lived by the kids who attend their programs.
Tori and Karl also get to work with an amazing team of coaches, high school and college-aged students, also teachers and parents who want to be part of the fun. Tori reminds the team often “this IS a job but go out and be a kid”. If the coaches are having fun, the kids are having fun!!
Every coach completes 10 hours of training, are background-checked annually and certified in CPR/First Aid. They also receive Double Goal Coach Certification from Positive Coaching Alliance.
Here’s what parents are saying:
“We loved that this camp was so close to home, making it super convenient and helpful with schedules. Zach had an amazing first experience learning basketball and didn’t want the week to end! Thank you for making it so much fun for the kids while keeping them safe. . . this was such the highlight of the summer! The coaches made the camp run flawlessly!”
“I’m encouraged at this day and age that your sports program values & teaches the importance of going beyond the individual player. Also, I’m always so impressed by the caliber of young people you find to lead these programs. I don’t find them on their phones, they look me in the eye, & their manners are superb. I’m so grateful I found your organization.”
