· LEGO ArchiTECH (recommended age: 4-7 y.o.)
Our LEGO ArchiTECH program is an introductory program to robotics. Using the LEGO We-Do Kits, students are guided through builds and are introduced to different elements of robotics, such as motors and sensors, as well as mechanisms like gears and pulleys and how to apply them to robot building.
· LEGO Robotics
Our LEGO Robotics program uses the highly capable LEGO Mindstorms EV3 platform to teach student how to build intelligent and capable robots using a variety of powerful sensors and motors. This program unleashes creativity and develops engineering intuition in students.
· 3D Printing
The future is now! 3D printing is revolutionising the world, and is becoming more and more present in our lives. In our 3D printing program, we teach the entire process of 3D printing from creating a 3D model to converting it to a 3D print.
We start by covering the basics of 3D modeling in a child friendly environment then guide students through new building techniques that get more advanced with every session.
Students also get to take home some of their favorite 3D printed creations that they've made during the program!
Very experienced, knowledgable and caring coaches. They made learning the game so much fun. It is a great program.

Welcome to Lifetime Skills Academy, where students "Grow, Lead and Learn ." LSA's mission is to create future leaders prepared to thrive throughout their whole lives in our ever-challenging and technological world. Our STEM programs give students the basis for futures in the exponential technologies such as computer programming, A.I, robotics, 3D printing and more. Our Life Skill programs give students successful habits, leadership abilities and the ability to build entrepreneurial projects and robust finances.
We believe that each child should get the attention they deserve and the tools and system to be excited about their own development. That’s the reason why we’ve made our camps choose-your-own week programming, so that children can customize their own experience.
We teach leadership and strive to transform our student's self-identity, and students gain confidence from their change in character, mentality and habits.
We are successful when our students are ignited in their passions and have a huge desire to improve. We have excellent instructor to student ratios and every student gets the attention they deserve and need to progress. Every child deserves the best instructor who believes in them and the best system for learning, growing and leading.
We would love to see you at our camps, educational programs, development sessions!
Yours in education,
Adib and Alexander

Robotics has been one of the most exciting technological advances in recent memory. The development of home robotics kits has allowed people to enjoy this amazing technology in their own homes or as part of extra-curricular programming. Given how complex the field can get, one of the most frequently asked questions by parents is how young is too young for a robotics program? With the progression of fun, engaging and intuitive Lego Robotics kits, children as young as 3 can begin to build, engineer and enjoy the fascinating world of Robotics!
At Lifetime Skills Academy (LSA) we divide our robotics programming into three stages in order to best suit the abilities of each student.
Lego Classic Builder – Junior Leader allows younger students (ages 3-6) to design and build various stable and functioning structures, giving them a fantastic foundation for robotics. Students are encouraged to develop their creativity, problem-solving abilities and teamwork skills in order to design and build bigger and more intricate structures as the program progresses.
Lego Robotics 1.0 is our intro robotics program for children 4-7. Students work with the Lego We-Do kits, developing projects such as cars and helicopters. There is also an introduction to programming which is a cornerstone of robotics moving forward. Students program using easy to use tablets on the Lego We-Do software.Students focus on how to:
Lego Robotics 2.0 is our more advanced robotics program, aimed at ages 8-12. Students harness their developing creativity and overall problem-solving abilities. These skills are vital for success in future education and career pursuits. In Robotics 2.0 students use the Lego Mindstorm EV3 robotics kits. These kits allow for complex builds while still remaining user-friendly. The modular nature of the Mindstorm EV3 kits provides students with immense versatility in terms of design potentials; the possibilities are limitless! Students will learn how to design, build and program robots to go through exciting challenges such as moving through mazes, lifting and distributing blocks and races. Finally, students can graduate to the Battle Arena and challenge each other’s robots!
This logical progression allows students to easily transition to more complex designs and builds. By beginning early, students can develop their skills and abilities from a young age. This doesn’t just help aid them in their robotics pursuit. Robotics breads transferable skills that will allow children to excel in all aspects of their lives from school to family. Getting familiar with robotics and programming will give students a head start for our exciting future technological world!
Happy New Year! We had a great 2018 with all of our students at TAC Sports. We have seen confidence soar, memories made, students making friends and crafting superstar self-images. We appreciate every single student who has taken the steps to make themselves better and discover their passion and potential!
As we enter 2019, we are reminded of one thing that has bound all of our training throughout the past year…FUN!
It is extremely important to incorporate fun in all that you do. It is a huge part of our positive reinforcement that helps our students to become attached and enamoured with their own skill-building experiences.
Fun is why we incorporate all training into our 5 Star Development Program and our Achievements into every session..to give that element of fun in all of our training. That is why we only have the most fun, passionate coaches that lead all of our sessions and camps. Fun is why we are so close as a TAC Sports team.
We say…those who have FUN together, STAY together.
We hope to see you all throughout a fun-filled 2019!
From the directors at TAC Sports,

Little decisions, little actions. They shape our destiny. As participants and as instructors, every little instance, every little action we take to get better can end up making a huge difference at the end of the day.
“The Compound Effect is based on the principle that decisions shape your destiny. Little, every day decisions will take you either to the life you desire or to disaster by default.”
-Darren Hardy (Publisher of Success Magazine)
This is a new principle we are enacting in our training, to get our students to focus on each decision, get that much better each day, and to stay motivated.
As instructors we can also benefit from continuing evolution of our lesson plans in order to maximize each and every session. Every little action adds up!
It is important to continue to be consistent in our practicing and make sure that nothing breaks the momentum!
Our homework to both our students and their parents – read The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy, it will make a huge difference in your development!
