In our recent blog series,
we talked about extracurricular activities. In the post "Sports: Extracurricular Activities for the Athletic Child," we specifically talked about the value of great leadership. We also introduced you to a book called "Playing It Forward" by coaching expert, Tim Law. Tim has great advice for coaches and parents alike and we hope to share some of these helpful ideas with you. The key ideas that Tim presents are not just coaching techniques, strategies, and philosophies. They also provide the very important life lessons that comes with sports and other extracurricular activities that your child may be involved in. Take a peek at this promotional video to hear from Tim.
Extracurricular Activities for the Athletic Child
Physical activity is certainly something that is very important for children to have on a regular basis. Soccer, football, baseball, wrestling, karate, tennis, dance, gymnastics, etc. are all great ways to keep your child involved and active. With the growing list of sports or activities that children can be involved in, parents are asking the question, where do we begin? How do we know which sports are a good option for our child? While there is no finite science to determining the answer to this question, allow me to share some thoughts that might help you make an informed decision.
