About Amazing Athletes
Amazing Athletes was founded in 2003 as a year-round children’s sports enrichment program helmed by trained coaches who teach children the fundamentals and mechanics of nine different sports. At the core of each class are developmental sports lessons, which focus on improving hand-eye coordination, flexibility, muscle tone, balance and speed and agility with the measurable aim of achieving key motor development goals and milestones. Amazing Athletes works diligently to ensure its classes allow every child – no matter his or her ability, age or skill level – to build skills at their own pace in a non-competitive, learning-based environment that emphasizes patience, encourages teamwork and promotes self-confidence.
In 2001 while interviewing numerous preschools for their children, the Henderson family pondered an idea of introducing a developmental sports program in preschools. Research was gathered for over a year and in 2002 the Amazing Athletes program was conceived. Developed by Chiropractor Dr Janee Henderson and sports coach husband Glen Henderson an action packed 50 week curriculum was designed concentrating on children's physical fitness, muscle development, fine and gross motor skills and hand eye co ordination while incorporating 8 different ball sports.
The program was introduced into 11 schools in Orange County Southern California in January 2002 and made an immediate impact. Today the Amazing Athletes program is taught in over 180 preschools throughout San Diego, Orange County and Riverside California and the corporation currently operates 13 additional franchises located in Phoenix, Texas, California and Georgia with more opening as they speak.
Their mission is to change lives by introducing their developmental physical fitness sports program to as many children as possible throughout America.
