MAPS was established in the summer of 2009, it was the brain child of former national team coach Trevor Marshall. His two boys were entering grade school and he saw a void for an after-school program that provided a stimulating environment for his energetic sons.
Trevor had a vision to create a program that provided families with quality care focusing on the power of sport and organized play.
MAPS gives children the opportunity to get back outside and “play”. The structure of the program is based on a daily schedule that includes both organized activities as well as free time. Weekly programs are sent to families on Sunday evenings so parents are aware of what their child will be doing.
The program uses multiple local resources such as parks, lakes, and playgrounds to run its activities. It prides itself on giving participants the opportunity to learn basic life skills, gain independence, and be goal motivated. Our organized activities all have a purpose whether it be to gain endurance, tune motor skills, help with balance, or hand eye co-ordination. Our professional staff give each participant the opportunity to learn and have fun all while enjoying being active and exploring the outdoors.
Over the years MAPS has grown and evolved but its philosophy of providing a quality program that promotes active living remains the same.
