GrowFit was co-founded in 2011 by Russ Nuffer. Inspired by his happy childhood memories, which all seemed to involve sports and friends, Russ sought to provide that same fun experience to today’s children and spark an interest in movement and exercise. Rather than the competitive sports environment found in many programs, Russ wants GrowFit to provide a safe atmosphere for all kids to enjoy sports and play safely with each other.
In addition to developing their motor skills, we share with children life skills that will allow them to be great teammates and adults:
Be respectful. It is important for kids to be open minded to others’ needs and feelings. They will learn to show respect to others, themselves and the sports equipment.
Work hard. GrowFit kids learn to become risk takers, to be brave and try new things. It is important for kids to try their best and understand the need for practice when learning a new skill.
Be honest. Kids will learn to be honest with themselves and with others.
