12 Jan How To Make Training Fun For Kids
Sports should teach young athletes discipline, how to work hard toward a goal, how to be better teammates, and how to be consistent with training.
However, the work rate isn’t possible if they don’t fall in love with their coach first, and show up to training with exuberance.
Youth training sessions must provide kids with joy and excitement, and as a nice byproduct, the effort and intensity rise.
I was grateful to publish a piece How To Make Training Fun For Kids on Stack.com.
The main points covered:
1. Greet kids with excitement.
2. Kick practice off with fun icebreaker games.
3. Use game play to build athleticism.
4. Get involved as the coach.
Enjoy and let me know what you think. Better yet, tag me in any game play activities you use at your sessions, and I’m happy to share your work.
This is about making kids better at their sport, but also, instilling in them fulfillment.
