Welcome to America’s Best Kids!

Sports and Learning Center

America's Best KidsAmerica’s Best Kids Sports and Learning Center is a “kid’s gym and school” where children come first. Our center is designed to cater to children and their families. ABK provides a place where kids can thrive and become confident, responsible and successful individuals.

We are very accommodating to the demands and challenges parents face with their busy lives and hectic schedules. ABK is increasingly aware of the financial strains put on schools today. The unfortunate consequence is that many schools have to cut back or entirely eliminate sports, music and art programs – classes many children look forward to the most.

boys-picABK’s founders looked back at their own childhoods and realized that some of the most influential people in their lives were coaches and teachers – individuals that not only taught skills, but valuable life lessons such as; patience, hard work and determination. Such mentors help children face fears and failures as well as share in their joys and triumphs. Our goal at America’s Best Kids is to help all children reach their personal best in a nurturing and supportive environment.

Athletic Programs

Gymnastics can be considered one of the foundation sports for all other sports as well as for life. At ABK, we offer the best quality gymnastics training for all children. Whether your child is a preschooler, beginner or an advanced acrobat, ABK has something for everyone. Our educated and energetic staff combined with the latest training equipment makes ABK the ultimate place to be for gymnastics training.

Men, women and children of all ages can participate in America’s Best Karate programs. Each student, regardless of age, progresses at their own rate. Emphasis is placed on the individual’s abilities. Students as young as 4 and as old as 70 have discovered the rewards of the program. Discipline, confidence and self-esteem are traits that everyone can benefit from throughout their lifetime.

ABK dance classes encourage growth in physical coordination, self-esteem, discipline, and motivation.  Students enrolled in our program will progress at their own pace, whether it be through the basic skills of ballet, to advanced levels of stylized dance, or learning a new dance style.  Our goal as a dance program is to help each student set and achieve their own goals, teach students awareness of their bodies in motion and self-confidence, and contribute to a happy and healthy lifestyle.

Swimming is one of life’s necessary skills and America’s Best Kids Swim School offers the best quality swim instruction for all children. With our state of the art swimming pool, warm 90-degree water and saline filtration, your child will have the perfect learning environment. Your child will learn at a faster rate and gain the necessary skills to be comfortable and safer around the water. Our program is based on safety and positive learning environment for your child. We take the role we play in your child’s life very seriously. Not only do we want your child to gain the love of the water, but also teach them the skills that boost their self-esteem and general athleticism outside of the pool.

Soccer is the most played sport on the globe and has earned its universal nickname as the Beautiful Game.
