Meet The Coaches

Ryan and Sarah Zylstra are passionate about early childhood development and understand that unlocking a child’s motor skills is vital to their early development. The powerful and natural combination of Ryan’s expertise as a junior golf professional combined with Sarah’s more than 20 years’ experience as a dance studio owner and teacher is evident in every class they teach. 

"We believe in the whole child approach. This way of teaching ensures each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged throughout their development. We can empower children as creative and engaged citizens who can strengthen the well being of a whole society."


About Jump Start Golf

Jump Start Kids Golf is designed to give juniors ages 3-6 a fun environment to learn to play the game of golf.

Our curriculum, Birdie Basics, was specifically designed for this age group by an early childhood expert and golf professional. The story-driven golf discovery program teaches through fun and memorable games. This allows young children to feel successful and get excited about golf from day one.

Jump Start Kids Golf takes the complex concepts involved in proper golf techniques and turns them into simple, memorable metaphors that we deliver through fun games and activities.

About Jump Start Dance

Jump Start dance classes are 30 minutes each week for kids age 18 months-6 years old! 

Our classes consist of circle time, warm up, stretches and song and dance activities.  We use creative movement, fun props, storytelling and easy to understand lessons to teach basic ballet, tap and jazz movements. Dancers will gain independence, creativity, social skills, patience, balance, spacial awareness, flexibility, strength and more. Each and every class is fun and keeps our dancers moving and learning!
