Five ways to support youth sports

This week we bring you a five-part series from our friends at TrueSport.org:

In order to make youth sports a positive and enriching experience for all kids, it’s important to understand the challenges many families face in terms of participating in youth sports.

This week we encourage families and your sport organizations to consider 5 components of youth sports – one each day – and how it impacts your kids.

Day 1: Physical Activity

There are a ton of activities competing for your kids’ attention, and across the country physical activities like youth sports are losing the battle to sedentary activities like video games and handheld screens. It’s not that there can’t be benefit from those activities; it’s that kids miss out on some very valuable benefits from being active.

When you are physically active and fit, your are ready for anything!
