Children will be brought to Bryant Park or Chelsea Piers Sky Rink for a multi-tiered skating program. Staff will help children get their skates on. Once on the ice, children are grouped together based on ability and comfort. Instructors emphasize safety, proper technique, balance, turning, stopping and much more. Our goal each session is for children to improve their skating skills and build their confidence on the ice.
Exploring and Adventure Squad
Our Adventure program will give your child an in depth perspective of the great outdoors to enhance their appreciation for nature. We will be hiking, climbing, biking, exploring, orienteering (mapping), fishing and learning survival skills. Your child will discover native habitats of local animals and insects. We will explore amazing locations in NYC parks that are unknown to most of us. Children will be brought to several outdoor locations including: Central Park, Riverside Park, Randall’s Island. Indoor locations are: the Museum of Natural History and indoor rock climbing gyms. When it snows, we will be outdoors building igloos, sledding and experiencing many other snow adventures.
Private Sports Instruction
Contact us to set up individual or small group sports instruction in any of our sports. This is the opportunity to work one-on-one with a coach who has years of training and experience; you can tailor the sessions to your athlete’s needs. Contact us for available times at Info@CorbinsCrusaders.com.
Program Structure & Coaching Philosophy
Children are grouped by age and skill level. The coaches tailor drills and activities for both learning and fun in order to maximize the effectiveness of the instruction. After the clinic session, children are divided into teams and play a game so each player can see immediate improvement and continue to develop their new techniques. The coaches are enthusiastic and high energy, and give each child appropriate individual feedback, attention and encouragement.
Children are picked up at dismissal from their school and taken to our fields and courts on counselor monitored buses. Following the program children go home on a counselor monitored bus and are handed to a parent or designated person between 5:30 – 6:15pm.
Our drop-off range extends east and west from 110-50 St (unless your school is downtown, we drop off in all Manhattan south of 110th). If you live outside of this range, we may be able to transport your child for an additional fee. Please contact us Info@CorbinsCrusaders.com to discuss options. Additionally, depending on location and for expediency it may be necessary to transport individual children with a counselor by taxi.
