        Come be an EC-KID             

“EC Kids” stands for “Everything Counts for Kids.”  Our Sports Fitness classes will measure and monitor student’s balance, agility, strength, coordination and flexibility in order to keep parents updated on their progress. These skills will help kids, of all abilities, gain the confidence they can use to participate in whatever sport they choose.  EC Kids are also taught nutritional information through original music and popular tunes of songs they already know (Parodies).  We focus on nurturing the whole child! The combination of sport drills, child development, rhythm and music makes this one of the most innovative programs for kids in Los Angeles.
