Campus Recreation is offering "Itty Bitty Sports," a program designed to introduce sports to children ages 3 to 5. Itty Bitty is affiliated with the nationally-recognized Start Smarts sports program. The program is focused on increasing motor skills, building confidence and self-esteem. Students are allowed to progress at individual rates, and the emphasis on winning is minimal.

The fall 2010 session, called "Sports Development," meets 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Thursdays, Sept. 7 to Oct. 12 at the East Campus Activities Building. The program will focus on the basic skills needed for sports, including throwing, catching, kicking and batting.

The registration deadline is Sept. 3. Cost is $45 per child for UNL students and members of Campus Recreation; and $55 per child for the general public. A basketball-specific session begins Oct. 26.

Register online at, or in person at Campus Rec facilities on City or East campuses. For more information, call 472-3467.
