Ipad’s, Ipods, Androids and snapchat. When I was a kid we had a game called Pong. Do you remember Pong? It was a white dot (Ball) and a straight line (bat). You played against another player or the program. My point is it was fairly boring and most of us played a bit and then went outside and played.
Now between video games, PDA’s and Netflix kids and adults have so many choices we are choosing to play inside in front of a device at an alarming rate.
The health and development of our kids is really at stake here and that is why Redstone supports Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program. Jumpstart is a program to get kids at risk into organized sport. Jumpstart provides kids at risk financial support to join a sport of there choosing. Jumpstart is a great incentive for us all to get up from or devices and play. On May 16 play in Redstone’s Jumpstart Tournament. Call 250 362-9141 or register at http://redstoneresort.com/canadian-tire-jump-start-mens-and-womens-open/
