It is recommended by the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition that children and adolescents spend at least 60 minutes of every day engaged in some type of aerobic and physical activity. Being active helps in the fight against obesity and plays a crucial role in decreasing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, high blood pressure, premature death and other ailments.
Youth Sports can be the perfect element in helping them to reach these goals and benefits but in addition to those health and fitness goals, a proper youth sports environment can also help to form a child's core life skills and values at an early age which can help to pave the way for their future and the future of our community. Commitment, Discipline, Work Ethic, Teamwork, Time Management, Communication, Leadership and Respect are some the most proven, important and significant areas that the right youth sports environment can positively impact.
This section is dedicated to helping Southern Nevada youth get active in sports, how to do it properly and the reasons why.

If you do decide to get your child active in sports and/or this is the first time getting your child active in organized youth sports, we urge you and your child to take a look at our P.A.S.S.
