Free Sports Classes For AFD Families


Sportball is offering free sports classes to AFD families. Below are the class descriptions, times, dates, etc. Spaces in these classes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

What is Sportball?
Sportball is sports instruction program that teaches fundamental sports skills to young children. Our program is non-competitive, which means the kids learn step-by-step instruction that focuses on building skills and confidence. Scrimmages and game schedules are not our primary focus. Our primary goal is to give each child a boost in athleticism, awareness of the game, and a chance to discover their sports potential. At Sportball a certified coach will lead your child through sports drills, scrimmages, and other fun motor-skill and teamwork games.

Class Locations
Sportball offers sports classes in every season at several locations across Austin. Free classes to Fire and Rescue familes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the following locations. Classes last one hour. Your child will need tennis shoes and a water bottle for the soccer class (shin guards are "nice to have" but not required), and a baseball glove and tennis shoes for the baseball class. The only thing needed for the mutil-sport class is tennis shoes.
