We all want the very best for our children. It is sometimes hard to know how many extra activities we should do and how many are too much. As we navigate the many competing demands of life, we need to remember what we want for our children long-term.
We all want our kids to be healthy. And part of staying fit is staying active. Sports are a great way to keep kids moving while building their social bonds and building their self-confidence. As a child, if you were outgoing and loved soccer, that may now be your go-to choice for your child – but maybe they are more interested in swimming or tennis. So which sport do you choose for them?
Helping a child develop a life-long love of sport is a valuable gift. The right sports camp or program will define a child’s interest in sports during their growing years, and provide a positive experience that they will always carry with them.
You signed your child up for soccer or hockey, and then the league sent you an email: ‘We need coaches!’ Maybe you had never coached kids’ sports before, and you thought it might be fun to coach. Maybe your coaching credentials are as long as your arm, and you counted down the days to when you’d be able to take to the ice and coach your Timbit. Either way, you were excited to help out and have been coaching ever since.
