When kids play sports, they learn how to work together, follow directions and socialize with others. Kids In Sports promotes the idea that athletics, when taught correctly, can improve a child’s overall development and provide lasting benefits that go beyond the game.
Our customized multi-sports program has been designed to equip children with greater life skills, helping them find early success so that they can grow up happy, healthy, confident and more prepared for the future ahead.
Developed by educators, Kids In Sports is a proprietary sports curriculum teaching multi-sports classes, rather than just one specific sport.
With a 1 to 5 coach to kid ratio, instructors are able to introduce children to a range of team based sports that are age appropriate and help build necessary developmental skills for every age level.
Kids In Sports is a specialized sports program for children ages 12 months to 12 years. Instructing children in multi-sport or specific-sport classes focusing on: Baseball, Basketball, Flag Football, Floor Hockey, Lacrosse, Soccer and Volleyball. Pre-school alternatives, after-school programs, camps and birthday parties are also available throughout the year.
Kids In Sports was founded in 1999 by Michael Strutt & Kenneth Colon. Both former collegiate sports athletes, Mike and Kenny hold degrees in Physical Education and Exercise Physiology. In addition to teaching, they’ve also worked professionally as accredited Personal Trainers and Coaches.
Together, they developed Kids In Sports to help younger children learn the fundamentals of sports, along with coordination, adaptability and improved social skills.
After many years of teaching Kids In Sports classes, Mike and Kenny have expanded their business and now handle all the day-to-day operations and management. They oversee a staff of trained educators, who have had the privilege of teaching thousands of children through this proprietary program.
After six years of coaching his daughter's soccer teams, Mike Brown decided to turn his passion of teaching sports to young children into a career and opened Kids In Sports franchise in Southeastern Massachusetts in November 2015.
A lifetime lover of sports and father of two, Mike has long held a belief that adults and children alike gain greater confidence and social skills through sports education. Prior to opening, he trained closely under Mike and Kenny to hone his coaching techniques and study the Kids In Sports philosophy that seamlessly introduces children of all ages and developmental levels to a variety of team based sports.
Prior to Kids In Sports, Mike worked in the financial services industry in Boston for over (15) years and regularly enjoys playing soccer, basketball and baseball in his spare time. He lives in Mansfield, MA with his wife and two children.
