Sports provide opportunities for positive influences in your child’s life and your family’s.  There are a lot of benefits to being a “sports family” such as building self-confidence, teaching time management, learning to be patient with people who can’t always keep up and general goal-setting. These qualities definitely help each of us throughout our lives.

Great coaches and teachers can be a wonderful support system to parents and families.

The Athlete of the Week celebrates participation in what sports does for our kids, our families, our schools and our communities.  This program isn’t about being the best at scoring goals, baskets or home runs, but more about the foundational qualities that healthy sports play in our lives.
