Sporties For Shorties

BGC Sports Weather Hotline

Class Postponed

In light of recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Evers safer-at-home order, we have made the difficult decision to cancel or reschedule all spring sports. This includes Sporties for Shorties. All participants who are registered for the program have the option of a full refund, or a transfer credit into the fall session of this class.

  • Credit: Your child will be automatically re-enrolled in Sporties for Shorties in the fall (Weeks of September 14 - October 19). You will not have to re-register, and your child’s spot will be guaranteed. There was a 27 person waiting list for this class, so if you plan to participate in the fall, I would suggest this option. If you are choosing this option, no action is necessary. Your registration will automatically transfer to the fall.
  • Refund: If your child will age out, or if your family is otherwise unavailable to participate in the fall class, please click HERE for a refund. Participants will receive a full refund by check via USPS. This will take 3-4 weeks due to the number of refunds to process.



Registration:  Class for Spring 2020 is FULL and sold out. Registration is closed. 

Dates & Location: Thursday evenings from 5-6pm at the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha. Sessions will be held on either the basketball court or on the turf field, depending on sport. Class dates run from September 10th - October 15th . 

Cost: $50 per child, and includes program t-shirt.

Ages: Boys & girls, ages 3-6. 

The Program: 

Sporties for Shorties is a fun, high energy class for kids ages 3-6. This class focuses on introducing kids to a variety of sports and helps them improve their motor skills in a noncompetitive way. Each week, athletes will learn the rules and basic skills for different sports through instruction and small games. Some examples of the sports we will be covering are: basketball, soccer, T-ball, volleyball (balloon), flag football, fitness, and rhythm and movement. Every week, community athletes from Kenosha’s local colleges and high schools will join to help support and mentor our littlest athletes during this class!

Please note: Children must be potty-trained to participate in Sporties for Shorties.

All refund requests must be submitted within two weeks of the season starting.
