Skilz is an excellent program that focuses on building the foundational motor and coordination skills that are key components to a child's development. The coaches have the educational background to ensure success for each individual child.

Get the trophy case ready. Learning and playing multiple sports is a key component of Skilz, as we want to give kids the tools and knowledge to participate and excel in a wide variety of activities. Children will be exposted to a "sport" skill in each and every class. Be prepared to catch, hit, throw, kick, and shoot some hoops with your kids at a moment's notice.

Rocking a backflip is just plain cool. At Skilz we love gymnastics because it's about 'how the body moves' and therefore is the foundation for all physical activity and sports. We want to develop the most fundamental physical and motor abiliites, mental, social and emotional benefits and performance skills that carry over into all aspects of life.

That's right. We said ninja skilz! You never know when your child might be called on to climb a rock wall, swing across hot lava, and parkour his way to save a damsel in distress (it could happen). At Skilz, we will teach your kids how to climb, swing, jump, and general move in an awesome way in, around, and through obstacles.

CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT MEGIN

Hi! My name is Megin Sharp. Allow me to quickly introduce myself. Before starting in the fitness industry and staying home with my 15 month old daughter, I was an Elementary Physical Education teacher and I taught for 6 years. I also coached Track and Field for 2 years, and I have over 9 years experience working with children of all ages.

I have a strong passion for both physical activity as well as teaching kids; so naturally I would want to incorporate the two. I have been involved in some type of activity my entire life; including gymnastics, t-ball, softball, basketball and track. I believe that by being involved in physical activity from a young age, it has given me the confidence physically, mentally and emotionally in becoming the person I am today.

My drive for this program comes from wanting my daughter, to be introduced in all areas of fitness, sports and general physical activity in order for her to learn how to move her body proficiently, in hopes that she gains confidence about her body and enjoys being physically active the rest of her life.

I encourage you to come try a Skilz class out and see for yourself what we are all about!!!

Hey guys. My name is Matt Sharp, and I am one of the owners of Maximus as well as a Skilz for Kids coach. I’ve always had a love of physical activity, and that translated into a life of sports and fitness. I graduated with a bachelors and masters degree from Eastern Kentucky University; where I played football, ran track, and trained in gymnastics.

I have two daughters, and believe introducing children to a variety of physical activities and sports will help them play better with others, develop a sense of independence and be more confident overall in life. We’ve developed Skilz with that goal in mind. I hope to see you soon in a Skilz class!!!

Since starting Skilz class, my 19 month old's confidence has soared. It is awesome to watch my son try new things at class and then practice those same things at home. Skilz Class is a great way for kids to develop a love for physical activity.

My 5 year old daughter LOVES going to Skilz! She can't wait to work on her ninja skills each week and show them off to me! I love the fact that we get to talk about fitness together.

In less than a month of Skilz, we can already see positive changes with our 2 year old daughter. She's more confident, has increased coordination, and we know that she is developing skills that will impact her positively as she grows. I am so glad that she is a part of this program.

Emily Damron | Head Coach

Hi guys! My name is Emily Damron and I am one of the coaches here at Skilz. I am super excited to combine my background in pediatric occupational therapy as well as my passion for health and fitness to support and coach this amazing program for children.

 I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 2002 and have been working with children in occupational therapy for over 14 years. I have had extensive training in a variety of settings (private practice, outpatient & schools) as well as continuing education to ensure the best practices to improve the motor, social and emotional development of children.

Being an active mother of two boys, ages 10 and 9, I was looking for a place where my own children could gain strength, coordination and confidence. Because of SKILZ, I feel confident that my boys will develop excellent athletic abilities under the programming of knowledgable coaches such as myself, Matt and Megin. SKILZ will be ensuring that my boys will have well rounded coaching with a science based background to guarantee success individually. And I ensure that for each child when they come through the doors at SKILZ. I look forward to coaching each child, getting to know their amazing families and watching every accomplishment they make.
