The Kids Are Tops Mission
Our mission and commitment to our youth is focused upon learning to develop happy, healthy and reasonable children – teaching them how to learn and accept challenges. We teach our athletes to understand and value others' differences, while becoming friends and mentors to all those who pass through our doors. In doing so, we strive to instill self-confidence and a sense of pride in working to achieve their goals – all by teaching them to master and refine their skills in a safe environment.

Our Teaching Principles
- Keep The Kids Safe:This is done through vigilance, awareness and safe training methods.
- Unconditional Respect:We offer and insist upon unconditional respect between teacher and student. Humiliating, embarrassing, demeaning or hurtful behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
- Be Enthusiastic:It shows you care and inspires others to care.
- Clearly Communicate Expectations: Tell the kids what you expect of them.
- Catch The Kids Doing Things Right:Focus on things gone right rather than things gone wrong.
- Offer Daily Challenges:Going past perceived limitations is the only way to stretch and grow.
- Offer Daily Successes: "Sense of accomplishment" is one of the most powerful motivators to "try again when the going gets tough."
- Perpetual Motion:Kids learn by doing, not by sitting or standing in line.
- Discipline With Natural Consequences: The natural (and unpleasant) consequences of a poor decision should form the basis of our discipline, not "punishment."
- Creativity, Variety, Fun:Kids (and adults too, for that matter) learn best when there is an element of fun built into the training environment.
