How To Nurture The Sporty Side Of Your Child

10:52 PM


Some children need encouragement to stay active, while others won’t sit still. If you have a sport loving child, they’ll still need a little encouragement. Maybe not to stay active, but to keep their passion high! It’s the responsibility of parents to ensure that love for sport remains alive and strong. So, what should you be doing to keep your sporty child passionate? Here are some tips!


PLAY WITH THEM

Whatever your kid’s sport of choice, you should be playing it with them. Practice makes perfect. You can’t expect to keep passion alive if your child never gets to play the game they love. Even if you aren’t a sports fan, having a kick around in the garden isn’t going to kill you. Set up some goals at home and get playing. With the right set up, your child can practice on their own as well. If your child seems restless, it can be worth taking them to the local park to play their sport there. A change of scenery is always welcome and could give your kid the boost they need. If you’re not keen on the idea of playing sport in public, invite along a friend that they can practice with.


BUY SOME SPORTING EQUIPMENT

Buying the right equipment for your child can make practice a lot better for your kid. Don’t let them use jumpers as goalposts. Buy them their own goals to practice with. If they like tennis, buy them some rackets and a net. If they like baseball, purchase a hoop and set it up. None of these things needs break the bank. You don’t need to get top quality stuff. As long as it serves the purpose, it’s good. As your child gets older, they might want better stuff. For now, though, you don’t have to worry too much about that. When the time comes, think birthdays and Christmas presents!

CAMPS AND CLUBS

Camps and clubs are excellent for nurturing your child’s ability. This will give them the chance to practice and meet people with the same passion! There are always local clubs for sporty kids. Ask the parents you know, and do a little online research into what’s available. Even if your child seems nervous about attending at first, they’ll soon grow to love it. There are many sporting camps, too. These can give your kid a much more intense sporting time during the holidays! Take a look at companies such as the Camp Association who can give you an idea of the choices available."

TAKE THEM TO GAMES

Taking your child to see professionals play is sure to renew their passion. Seeing the best players will give them fire in their belly and a desire to work hard. They’re sure to enjoy themselves. Even if you aren’t a sports fan, you’ll enjoy yourself at a game. The atmosphere will be great, and seeing your child happy will make it worthwhile. This is prime bonding time that you won’t want to miss out on!
