Sportball provides non-competitive sports instruction for children ages 16 months to 10 years We want kids to develop physical literacy and a life-long love of movement and sport We place our emphasis on competence and confidence building, socialization and overall fun.

If we asked one of our Sportball parents to dream up their child's ultimate class, it would probably end up looking a lot like our star program, Multi-Sport. Multi-sport classes keep children moving and engaged and send them home with new skills from a different sport each class. Please note Parent and Child Multi-Sport requires an adult to participate in each class. '''

To play a daredevil’s advocate

On view January 13 – April 13

In the early 1900's, during the height of daredevil activity surrounding Niagara Falls, one woman surprised everyone Confined in only a whisky barrel, padded with a few pillows, Annie Edson Taylor became the first person to successfully plunge over the brink of the Horseshoe Falls and survive

But what was her overall intention? In search of financial stability, Annie resorted to the most challenging entrepreneurial endeavor; challenging nature. In the shadow of her male counterparts - even with the Falls on her sidesuccess was destined to be unattainable.

To play a daredevil's advocate pays tribute to Annie and her performance, while asking the viewer to consider their individual relationships with this natural wonder. At what point has the Falls been positioned as a trophy or celebrity you need to photograph yourself next to? Or beat in a match? Where does this inherent desire to challenge the Falls come from? At some point in time this perspective stuck - do we have the need to feel superior to the Falls or recognize our inability to?
