Giving Kids the Skills to Succeed - at Life and Sports

Second Nature Sports

Empowers mentors and coaches to adopt a proven sports philosophy that nurtures childhood development.

75% of children leave all sports for good by age 13

Before kids can play like a pro, they must enjoy playing the game like a kid.


Our Training Plans are the optimal guide for parent-coaches to aid them in the running of a practice session for children.

We offer three different age groups of curriculum to ensure that the practice content is absolutely perfect for the various levels of child development.

Each weekly newsletter offers a different theme and covers the five main parts of a practice session: Warm-Up activity, Stretching program, Soccer Skill activity, Running activity, and a Final FUN game. Each activity is presented in the form of a short video, graphics, and easy to understand diagrams. Most importantly, a coach can access a perfect training session in less than two minutes. All of this can be accessed on your computer, tablet, or smart phone, and used right on the training field.

It’s a new way of thinking about youth sports that focuses on how children develop naturally through play.
