So we've tried the spectrum of sports with Naia (basketball, karate, swimming, gymnastics) and some others with Gianna (swimming, gymnastics). Now they are not over-scheduled kids at all, there are no sports activities during the week and I managed to squeeze both swim and gym in on Saturday mornings so we have flexibility the rest of the weekend. But the overall purpose is to let them try different things and see what they like and what sticks.
While re-enrolling for this season's swim classes at Westerville Recreation Center, I saw that they were offering summer tennis classes through Skyhawks Sports Academy and after looking through their program information, was impressed enough to sign up Naia for the Quickstart sessions. Then it turns out they were offering bloggers a chance to try their sessions out too so I signed up Gianna as well. To be honest, I do not have high expectations for how much they will retain. To clarify, it's not for lack of skills, they're just easily distracted by "socializing with other kids" at this stage :-) But I hope they have fun. And from looking at this video, I think they will!
I want to go to sports camp too!
I like the part about them "napping" being able to learn some skills and be safe.
I used to play tennis and remember the time a net play ended up on my upper thigh and I got a bruise the size of a large chocolate chip cookie.
So I got right back out there by way of signing up my kids. :-)
