Many sport camps and programs will improve your child’s skill level in a given sport, but not every program will also instil the desire to stay active for life. This is an important distinction, and one parents should bear in mind when selecting a sport program or camp for their child.
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?
Growing up, I pretty much failed at every athletic endeavor I tried... anything I was introduced to in PE class which resembled a sport, that cringe- worthy summer of softball, and those two hilarious years of ballet and tap. You’d think I’d try to steer my kids away from sports but instead, I do what I can to encourage them to give sports a try.
