Two public programs, aimed at children and administered by Kinesiology's department of Physical Education, are open for registration.
U-Meet the Athlete gives children grades K-8 the opportunity to participate in sport clinics with University of Michigan varsity student-athletes. The goal is to have fun while stressing the importance of mastering sport-specific fundamentals, doing well in school, and living a healthy lifestyle. The cost is $20 per child, per session.
University of Michigan Credit Union Penny Pioneer participants and children of University of Michigan Alumni Association members receive a $2 discount per session. All proceeds go to the Jeff Reese KidSport Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for disadvantaged kids to attend the University of Michigan's KidSport Summer Camp.

KidSport offers children the opportunity to learn and refine non-competitive sport-specific skills, team building, and social skills. Kidsport's one-week sessions run from June 17 through August 9.
The KidSport morning session (ages 4-15) teaches sports, games, and other physical activities, both inside the CCRB and outside on Palmer Field, the tennis courts, basketball court and roller hockey court. Activities may include swimming (instructional and play), cooperative games, safety behavior, and team sports. The activities are age and developmentally appropriate, and are developed by experts in children's physical education.
The KidSport afternoon session (ages 7-15) offers in-depth sport-specific training. One-week sessions focus on golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, track & field and other team and individual sports.
