Ryan Hoy, a physical education teacher and coach of more than 100 teams, recently opened Head Start Sports, a new business designed to provide high quality skill instruction and game play opportunities for aspiring young athletes. Head Start Sports is introducing new, exciting programs for elementary children of all ages and no previous playing experience is necessary.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to train and develop athletes here in Windsor and Essex County,” said Ryan Hoy who serves as the lead instructor. “I have a wide range of experience in the field having taught children in junior elementary school while at the same time, coaching competitive athletes at the high school level over the past fourteen years. It is very rewarding to provide younger children who are considered beginners with their first exposure to the game. The ultimate goal is to develop a life-long love for sports among children of all ages, whether they choose to play recreationally or competitively.”

Head Start Sports will run evening programs throughout the school year at local schools. These “Learn to Play” programs will provide children with grass-roots training in order to develop the necessary skills and confidence to play as part of a team in a fun environment. Head Start Sports will also run sports camps during school holidays that will enable children to enjoy a physical education class for an entire day.

“We plan to offer a heavy dose of fun and fitness for everyone who participates in our programs and improvement is our focus,” explains Hoy. “Children should be physically active for a minimum of 60 minutes per day and we can provide parents with an affordable option to ensure their children are not missing out on sports this year.” For more information, you can visit their website.
