Multisport Programs

Multisport programs are a way to introduce children to a variety of quality sports and activities.

These programs align with the Long-Term Athlete Development Framework and provide an alternative to early sport specialization.

Participation in a range of sports at a young age supports physical literacy development. This foundation of skills, confidence, and motivation encourages growth in other developmental areas.


Although the concept is a sound one, not all multisport programs are created equal. Like any type of development, a multisport community has the best chance of success with a solid foundation.

The tools outlined below will get your community ready to begin its multisport journey!
