Do you have kids? Are they ready to play kids sports?
Do you want to know how to get them started? ....Or, maybe you're trying to decide what sport your kid should play first?
------- Well, you've come to the right place!
It's fun to watch your kids playing sports, and I can provide guidance on what to expect when your kids want to play sports too.
My husband and I have more than a decade of experience with our three kids playing in a variety of sports and activities, and we are still experiencing them today! :-)
We've learned so much about several sports over the years, so I created this website to assist others with information about these sports.
Are your kids looking for fun activities to do? Have they asked to play kids sports? Let them experience some sports fitness fun today!
You'll never know if they like to play kids sports until they give it a try.
Your child may want to play sports, but as a parent you might be asking "why should my kids play sports?".
Your kids will never be bored again...
I have two boys and a girl, and my two boys LOVE to play kids sports! They are so busy with practices and games, they RARELY get bored!
You know the routine... your child wakes up on Saturday morning, eats their breakfast, and the next thing they ask is "what are we going to do today?”.
They eagerly wait for you to tell them all the fun-filled things you have planned for them to do.
If you don't have any plans, they get that disappointed look on their face...
----- "Usually I would get that look from my 10 year old son..." -------
They come to you later saying, “I’m bored, there’s nothing to do!”.
Well if they like sports, get them signed up for their favorite and start practicing today!
When I was little, my dad would say…"If you're that bored, you can help with the laundry and house cleaning". Of course that was the last time I ever said I was bored in front of him again. ;)
Now my kids are constantly playing some type of sport all year long, and having kids in sports keeps parents busy too.
If your kids are busy in sports, they won't have as much time to get into trouble doing something else. Boredom can lead to mischief!!!
They usually have to practice from one to five days a week, and they play at least one game a week depending on the sport.
There is no such thing as a "boys sport" or a "girls sport". Both boys and girls can play any sport, especially when they are young. Yes, even football!
In fact, having girls in sports is a great way to boost their confidence and teach them teamwork, accountability and healthy habits at a young age.

There are several sports out there for kids to play today. Below are some of the most popular.
My kids played each of these sports for at least one season, so I can explain the pro’s and con’s.
I do not recommend kids playing more than one sport at a time per season. It can be too demanding for them at such a young age.
When my kids were between the ages of three and thirteen, they would play one sport per season.
Too many sports can be wear your kids down fast, and you "the parents" too.
Many sports are physically tiring, so playing more than one sport in a season might wear your child down and effect other areas of their lives.
Keeping up with two sports schedules can literally be impossible!!! Practice and game times could overlap, and the mental exhaustion of trying to commit to both teams can wear you out.
There will be less time and energy for your child to study if they are in more than one sport per season.
There are several other sports for kids to play besides the ones mentioned on this site, and it can be hard to choose just one at a time.
If your child seems to do okay with two sports, it might be just fine to try it. You can always back down to one the following season.
For example they might like swimming and baseball, and those two sports might be a nice compliment to each other.
The decision is up to you! There is no right or wrong answer, because every child is different.
I hope you find some useful information on this site. I know we love watching our children play kids sports, and I am certain that you will too!
