The birth of a legacy
Kidokinetics has a very interesting story behind it. Having started teaching at the age of 12, Terri always had this belief that one day she would develop a program that would allow kids to experience all sorts of sports in a friendly and non-competitive environment while also allowing them to experience sports they loved joyfully. However, it was not a cakewalk for Terri. Starting her business with just a whole lot of passion but no partners or financial support was a major challenge. However, having taught and trained in Shotokan karate for more than twenty years, and worked as a sports teacher in early childhood, Terri was very clear on what she wanted to do and achieve through it. This clarity helped her raise the funds she needed and bring her vision into reality. Like every time Terri relied on hard work to make more money and finally, her dream took off.
Terri has had a very personal relationship with physical fitness. Having experienced the wonders physical education can do at a very young age, Terri’s passion for sports and physical fitness only continued to grow. Having competed in Karate competitions on national and international levels since a very young age, Terri noticed that schools were missing a very crucial element of physical education. Terri knew that every kid was unique with some being in the sport for competition while some being in the sport just for the joy of it. Irrespective of their motive for being in the sport, Terri wants every child to enjoy, stay active, and fit. Henceforth Kidokinetics offers a vast variety of programs for kids of all ages, interests, and athletic abilities. On its mission to make sports and fitness accessible, welcoming, and fun, Kidokinetics provides sports options like Archery (USA Archery), Baseball (USA Baseball), Basketball, Field Hockey (USA Field Hockey), Frisbee/Disc Golf (DGA), Football (NFL Fuel Up to Play 60), Golf (First Tee Drive), Running (Nike Marathon Kids), Rugby (Rookie Rugby), Track and Field (Run, Jump, Throw), Soccer Soft Stick Lacrosse (US Lacrosse), Volleyball (USA Volleyball), Cricket (USYCA). “Our purpose is to ensure that school-age children are exposed to a variety of ways to stay active and healthy, whether in school, after school, or at events like summer camps and field days,” affirms Terri.
