Birthday Parties

Mo’ Motion offers single or multi-sport birthday parties and events all year, pending gym availability and use of outdoor spaces. Here are the details.

Where:  We try to find gym space in our gym rentals (indoors) around our booked programs. We also can do parties outside preferably at W76th/W70s (or near you), but we need to file for a permit in advance. Lastly, we can do parties on private courts, but we need more details – location, commute time for coaches, size of court.

What if it rains?  If we are booked outside, we have a backup court under the overpass at W70th Street, but technically we are not supposed to get TWO permits. We get one for the court at W76th and if it rains, we are good at getting on a court under the overpass. Or we can book a rain date/backup.

Who:  Kids ages 6-14 is our usual age range.

Sports:  Birthday Party Child’s Pick of 3 – but usually dodgeball, basketball, soccer, flag football or kickball.  We add relay races to warm kids up and in between.  We provide kickball, dodgeballs, footballs and 3-4 basketballs.

Duration:  Typically 90 minutes with us and then food for 30 minutes (they eat fast).  We recommend a snack to start the workout and water.  We do activities for 75-90 minutes and towards the end, the food is set up so the kids can have food and cake for the last 30 minutes.

Food:  Parents are responsible for food, drinks, snacks and plates, cups, etc. and we are restricted in gyms as far as having food in the gym – so the food has to be easy, simple, and no mess – no crumbs or garbage (same outside). Mo’ Motion suggests ordering from local restaurants and timing the delivery during the party (and keeping the food away from the kids while they play). Local restaurants we recommend are Little Italy Pizza, Shake Shack, etc. on the upper west side. Mo’ Motion parties are no more than 90-minutes in terms of the sports component.

Cleanup:  We pay coaches to stay for the full 2 hours to make sure there is no garbage left behind and they usually arrive 15 minutes early.  We keep a tight two hours max so that our coaches and all the participants are out on time.

Cost:  $750 INDOORS for a two-hour slot in our gyms, but we can offer a discount to a) current participants only if b) the gym fee is reasonable. Some of our gyms are more expensive than others. $650 for an outdoor party. Parents bring all food, garbage bags, drinks, etc.

What to Bring:  It is recommended that b-day child’s parents bring a) a snack and water to start — some bring it in a small cardboard box or just hand it out (fruit, goldfish, etc) b) make sure invite says bring your own water bottle (there’s a fountain for refills) and c) a tablecloth or sheet – plastic or cloth – to put down on the ground for kids to sit/eat around the food/pizza, cake and d) extra napkins/garbage bags.  Motion brings balls, bases, first aid kit, some simple prizes, stickers and extra garbage bags just in case we need more.  Motion can recommend when and how to order the food – and to pick it up – from a local pizza place or Shake Shack so it is well timed and organized for hungry, sweaty, kids to enjoy.

Please fill out the form below if you are interested in requesting a birthday party that will in most cases be outside unless we have gym space.  Put your preference in the form.  After we set up and approve of your day, time, location, we will send you a link to pay.

Field Day

Day off from school?  Want to put together a small group for an outside workout?  A full class workout?  Do the kids like dodgeball, kickball, basketball and more?  Great!  You pick the sports and then email the office with your details – size of group, day/time, outdoor location or area, and we’ll set up the coaches, link and instructions.  Reach us out at or

Bonus Holiday Clinics

Email the office if you want to customize a group for a holiday clinic, camp or fitness event.  Specify the days/times/locations and the size of your group. We’ll work on staffing the event and creating an item for parents to choose in our registration system. Reach us out at or

Gym Rentals

Email Mo your day/time, request for rental knowing we have to assign a coach and fall within compliance of all gym rules, which change gym to gym. We typically are fully booked, but we also like to help the community if they are in need of space. Reach her out at or
