Backyard Sports coaches and teaches young athletes and offers a fresh and innovative concept in athletic training that combines high-level skill instruction with an emphasis on fun and the appropriate lessons that competitive team sports offer. The program consists of weekly skill sessions and/or league-based play for boys and girls from Pre K through 8th grade. Backyard Sport's coaches are committed to the complete development of the young athlete. Its curriculum teaches not only the tactical aspect of sports, but also helps children gain confidence, develop appropriate winning attitudes, and learn about the importance of team chemistry.
High-tech this and state-of-the-art that. Whatever happened to plain old fun? It still exists—really. And it’s right in our own backyard. Here’s what we love about Backyard Sports: its focus is on kids, on sportsmanship, on fun. Founder and Scarsdale resident Danny Bernstein hopes Backyard Sports brings back some of the “schoolyard spirit and sandlot magic” that’s been lost over the years. Kids—and not just those destined for greatness—can play basketball in fall, soccer in winter, and baseball in the spring. A program for children with special needs also is offered.
