Champions are made in the off-season

October 28, 2011

Student athletes can’t adequately prepare for the season in a couple of weeks. You can’t expect them to be properly prepared if they don’t work hard way before the season begins. It takes months, not weeks, to significantly improve skills, mental toughness and adequatly condition for sports. You can just add water and get instant pancakes but there’s no such thing as developing instant athletes.

Champions are developed in the off-season. All the hours of practice, all the hard work, and all the sacrifices – these things will not be forgotten. When the season rolls around and crunch time nears, champions will take what they deserve. They know how much was invested, and they understand that they are the most prepared. They paid their dues – they refuse to lose.


Bonding Families Through Physical Activity

October 25, 2011

Physical activity has been part of the family unit for decades. It has always played an important role in bringing and holding families together; quality time at its best. Making physical activity a family thing early on in children’s lives develops a family bond that will last a lifetime.

As kids grow and develop their own interest, physical activity is something a family will always have in common; something they are comfortable doing together. It’s a time when kids get to know you as a person and not just a parent. It’s a place where there’s no authority, where everyone speaks the same language — where barriers are broken down. And when barriers are removed, communication improves.

Developing and maintaining communication with your children is a tough task for any parent. Participating in physical activity together will open a line of communication between parent and child that will continue through adolescence and beyond.

Many problems and issues have been discussed and resolved over a game of horse, a catch, or a jog around the neighborhood. If you’re communicating with your adolescent, you’ll be in a position to make a real difference in his or her choices and actions. Physical activity acts as a bridge between parent and child. It brings closeness; it closes the generation gap.
