At four, she wanted to be a ballerina. I signed her up for a six week summer course at the local dance studio. She still talks about that experience. When she liked soccer, I let her join our local soccer team. She even went to soccer camp that summer. When she liked tennis, we took her down to our community tennis courts, Dora the Explorer racket in hand, and played together. She even did tennis camp that summer. When she wanted to learn her swimming strokes better, we signed up for swim lessons at the YMCA and she did great.
She loves biking, paddle boarding, and kayaking too and that makes me happy. I want to introduce her to all the outdoor things she wants to try. So here are my best tips for parenting young athletes:
- have fun
There is potential in every young athlete, don’t you agree? Parents have a unique ability to fuel their athlete’s potential by making sure they have everything needed to be their best.
How do you best support your own young athletes?
This is why I am excited to see Powerade‘s Just a Kid Program. What a great campaign! Learn more below.
About Just a Kid
There is potential in all of us. No matter what you achieve in life, you start in the same place as everyone else: as a kid full of potential and big dreams. At the end of the day, we are all “just a kid” from somewhere.
POWERADE believes that with the right motivation these everyday athletes can realize their potential and one day be the athletes that they look up to. Sports have a major impact on our communities. Whether it is t-ball or the pros, every athlete in every league has a story waiting to be told.
You can now represent your somewhere with custom “Just a Kid” apparel that features where you’re from here. All net proceeds from the sale of “Just a Kid” apparel goes to the Boys & Girls Club of America.
The ION4® Advanced Electrolyte System in Powerade helps replenish four electrolytes lost in sweat: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. POWERADE is formulated with a 6% carbohydrate solution to help provide energy to working muscles, and vitamins B3, B6 and B12.
