RNN Sports Gym™ was created by Founder, Ruth N. Nelson and Creative Director, Beth Howes after a discussion on what is the niche that is not being provided for online courses with all the material in one place. Nelson and Howes began with 5 slides in their google documents which grew to over 150 working slides. Each week the plans began to develop into a full service one-stop-shop with all the materials needed for teachers instructing ages 4-10.
Nelson has spent the past 23 years developing programs for this age group. During the past 13 years, she has developed BYOP® Bring Your Own Parent® for kids 10 and under with their parents training on the court with them and GoKids Youth Sports™ Certification program to accommodate teachers, recreational leaders, and youth coaches with a chance to train kidz whose parents may not have the time to attend with their kidz. We all want kids to have immediat success; often they become discouraged when success involves hand-eye coordination, agility, speed, and strength to enjoy the sport.
