Movement exploration and self-organization
Encouragement of play and competition
Maintaining healthy division between general movement and skill-training
Developing scalable softball skills
There is no doubt to me that @krista_stoker, @LauraATC and the rest of the crew @S2_Breakthrough I have built one of the best youth sport/training programs out there! A model for healthy and positive development for young people!

S2 Breakthrough has developed a non-traditional, pre-puberty model. This model uses a movement focused approach to acquire the skills needed for softball (hitting, pitching, and fielding). S2’s model is a balance of becoming competent in foundational movements (skipping, hopping, hinging, balancing, bending, etc), age appropriate off-season “training” (tag, capture the flag, and obstacle courses), and of course hitting, pitching, and fielding. These foundational movements are used daily in the sport of softball, and are essential to be learned, practiced, and mastered.
