Active Kids SA Kids Newsletter Jul 2017


Dear Parents,

Don't worry, I'm kidding, but let's talk about those jumping jacks, and how important it is for your kid to get out there and get their blood pumping.

Sports for kids allows children to get the benefits of exercise, enjoy playing together and socialize with their peers to build essential life skills.

Any form of sports for kids are a great activity that provide a variety of benefits other than physical activity. Participating in sports or sport like activity, can help build self-esteem, confidence, motivate children to excel academically and help build social skills. 

From a young age physical activity is the most obvious benefit of any sports participation. Children often spend too much time watching television or playing on-line games, but sports provide an opportunity for exercise that can help keep kids healthy anddevelop social skills that will benefit them throughout their entire lives. They learn to interact not only with other children their age, but also with older individuals in their coaches and instructors. Kids learn leadership skills, team-building skills and communication skills that will help them in school, their future career and personal relationships.

Sports participation is an excellent avenue to promote health and wellness, but parents must encourage healthy living and be positive role models as well. (That is not always easy unless you yourself are active in sports)

Sports can also have a huge positive impact on a child’s self-esteem and confidence. Children who participate in sports get praise and encouragement from coaches and parents, which helps to build self-confidence. They also learn to trust in their own abilities and push themselves. Constructive criticism is also a major part of sports participation, and young athletes learn to accept such criticism and use it to their benefit. As a Parent you should be actively involved so that if for some reason things are not going well you can step in or move your child to another coach. Sadly not all coaches should work with kids and not all children are good at every sport.

Find the activity / sports they enjoy and love the most. Have Fun!

We wish you an active but fun week ahead and please don't hesitate to contact us if we can assist in any way to make parenting a bit easier. 

Kind Regards
Coral-Leigh & Tania
