Movement foundations is a leveled program created specifically for youth by a team of physical therapists, teachers, and certified trainers. This program is specifically designed to help youth build a strong foundation of movement that will serve them in whatever sport or activity they participate in.
4 KEY MOVEMENTS
Our team of physical therapists and certified teachers worked together to break down the core movements that are common in many sports and activities and created a leveled program that guides youth to challenge their physical foundation in order to help them build up their skills so they are able to safely and efficiently participate in a variety of activities. We believe a well-rounded child has the greatest potential to evolve into an adult that enjoys an active and healthy lifestyle.
16 SPECIFIC SKILLS
The 4 key movements were then broken even further into specific skills that are transferrable to many different activities and sports. Each skill was put into levels that build upon each other in order to reach the top skill. These levels are designed specifically for youth and are intended to help youth set realistic goals and accomplish challenging tasks while strengthening their bodies for the future.
These 16 specific skills encompass a wide variety of movements that work to produce a well-rounded athlete that is able to be successful at any sport or activity.

7 LEVELS OF CHAMPIONS
At your local Thrive Kids class youth will be evaluted on a specific core skill to determine their current level of competency. The child will then set a goal pertaining to their current level and work throughout the session to strengthen their skills to reach this goal. The movement foundation that pertains to the core skill for the session will be reinforced throughout the session and youth will also be provided with additional work outside the classes in order to help them obtain their goal.
At the end of the session,, youth will be re-evaluated on the core skill to see what advancements have been made!
