It all started with the internet, then email, facebook, texting, youtube, on demand video and video games. I have been encouraging people to get our children playing organized sport instead of playing with their PDA’s. Heck it doesn’t need to be organized just play. Obviously owning a Golf course I would love to see them golfing. But I really don’t mind if they never play golf as long as they play something. Canadian Tire has a great program. See below.
“Participating in sport helps kids develop physical and social skills. It helps build self-esteem. By helping kids get into the game, we’re equipping them with determination. And we’re giving them confidence that will extend beyond practices and games.
Money raised within each Chapter stays within the community and goes directly to help kids participate in sport, dance or other organized physical activities. Jumpstart funding helps families that need a financial hand with registration, equipment and/or transportation costs.”
Lets get kids playing again!
