MTA Sports Center Kid Zone

Our Approach

MTA Sports Center provides professional child care so that all children and families have an enjoyable and memorable experience.

We do this through…

  • Caring and nurturing environment
  • Professional standards and conduct
  • Partnering with parents
  • Qualified and dedicated staff
Child Care (ages 0-6)

Our Child Care staff is held to high standards and receive regular training.  We know that when you drop off your child, that you are dropping off your pride and joy.  We take that seriously.  If you aren’t happy, then we aren’t happy that we’ve disappointed you.  Be sure to let us know when we are falling short of your expectations.

Child Care is available for children ages 0-6.  Moms and dads can drop off their child for some much needed Me Time.  Parents can work out for up to two hours before they need to pick up their child.  Child Care is available with Premium membership.

Tumble Buddies (ages 3-6)

Tumble Buddies is for older children who still need supervised care.  Instructors work hard to provide enriching, structured play in which kids interact in developmentally appropriate activities.  Instructors are enthusiastic and engage the children to participate, to learn, to grow, even preparing them for school in the coming years.

Open Courts

MTA Sports Center reserves courts for our members so that kids and families have a space to just show up and shoot around.  Some days, like Saturdays, there’s no member court because of Valley Youth or a tourney, but generally you will always find a court to shoot around with your kid.

Elevate Basketball

Elevate Basketball:  Our professional trainer, Jeff Trainer, a former collegiate player, is regarded as the finest basketball trainer in the state of Alaska.  Jeff is a basketball workaholic, providing opportunities for kids age 5 all the way to the collegiate level.

  What is basketball training?  Basketball training is different than a regular basketball practice.  Individual player development is the focus in training.  Coach Jeff will demonstrate a skill and then have players perform the concept.  Jeff corrects as needed throughout the sessions.  Dribbling, footwork, and shooting are three of the main components of skill training.  Toward the end of sessions Coach Jeff may introduce competitive situations where players use the skills learned during training so they can practice in game-like situations.  

  Questions about Elevate?  Contact Tamara Morgan, Elevate administrator, 907.671.9744 or akelevate8stars@gmail.com
