Earlier on, in the 90’s, kids used to come home from school, go into their sweats from their uniforms, have their lunch and go out to play. Whereas, what we see these days is nothing like that. Technology, Internet, video games, play stations, Xboxes have trapped the kids to such an extent that they have become gadget bounded and are going way behind when it comes down to human interaction.
It might seem satisfying for the parents to see their infants in front of their eyes, within the home premises all the time but it’s certainly not good for their long-run journeys. Instead of being occupied with the video games, it’s best for them to go out in the sun and play with their neighboring kids. The question is how to get kids moving again like the earlier times? Here are the most popular sports for kids that will keep them interested and addictive to prefer sun over an air conditioner.
What we see these days is teens dreaming of becoming baseball players. Make your kids own this dream from their very young age so that they can practice and excel in it when the time is right. Nearly 3 million kids today from their ages ranging from 8 to 15 are a part of different baseball leagues. They participate in seasons offered by their respective leagues and the length of the season depends on the country you live in.
Apart from being a sportsman, kids will gain physical strength and balance in their lives. This will help them grow discipline among their personalities and will be a good team player as well.
Soccer is one of the most famous sports around the whole globe. It is as famous in America as other parts of the world. US Youth Soccer organization started off with some 10,000 players whereas now they have successfully built it up to more than 3 million.
Soccer is a very healthy sport and even a young kid of 4 years can participate in a soccer game. Children mostly get bored of playing other games, but soccer has never failed to mesmerize people. Many of the famous soccer players are the idols of many young children, and they watch their games just to see their favorite personality rolling in the field. Besides the muscular strength and balance, soccer helps the child to gain coordination and flexibility in the life. Children become good team players and disciplined.
Bicycling used to be the very first sport/outdoor activity that was played by the child. The very first gift as the kid grew by his parents to him used to be a bicycle. For girls, it mostly used to be in pink color with relevant horns and ribbons tied on its sides and a very cute little pink helmet.
Apart from being a sport, bicycling is a very good exercise. For safety reasons, parents usually buy their kids a three-wheeler cycle but once they find that their kid is grown up enough to ride a ride freely, it turns into a bicycle and kids can enjoy it the way they like to ride. It is recommended that mountain bikes or multispeed bikes should not be given to the children until they come off age.
There are many benefits of riding a bicycle. Most of them include leg strength, fitness, coordination, balance and weight control. It teaches a child discipline, control and most importantly a kid feel free which is good for a human mind and inner peace.
