Children aged 6 and older need at least an hour of physical activity every day according to the Mayo Clinic (and common sense).
During the warmer months, it’s easy for your soccer kids to get that with games and practices. But even with more indoor facilities and programs like futsal, keeping up the pace is a challenge. Whether your soccer player is older and serious about their game, or just starting out but can’t get enough of the game, keeping active while working with a ball will benefit their game for the next season and beyond.
Have you ever thought as parents how we look after the whole family dynamic when it comes to our children’s sport and most notably the role that siblings may play.
We are all too aware of the weekly balancing act of juggling more than one child and trying to make sure that everyone is able to participate in all of the different sports and activities that they wish to, whist still trying to maintain some quality family time. It can be incredibly difficult, sometimes it even feels impossible but there are a number of things that may be able to help us in terms of our preparation and how we are currently feeling about it.
