Sports for your little ones

With so much in the news about children not getting enough exercise I’m keen to make sure we do as much as we can!

I loved sport as a child but was never much good at it so I want to make it as fun as possible for my children and get them interested early.

My older boys play football for local teams so go to training on a Saturday and play matches on a Sunday. Yes – I am one of those mums in her wellies, a snugly warm coat and a hot flask of tea that jumps up and down on the sidelines, cheering them on. They lose more than they win but as long as they’ve enjoyed themselves then who cares!

My toddler has always been wanting to join in, but I could never find anything for his age – until now!
Isaac has been going to Sports4Tots for a few weeks now and he loves it! They alternate sports every week between Football, Rugby and Tennis. They learn the basic skills (all in a fun way) which helps their balance, co-ordination and dexterity! I have been really impressed with how quickly Isaac has learned the skills and his enthusiasm for each sport is contagious!!

Games include “Scoring a try” in other words – squishing a rugby ball on a coloured shape at the other end of the room! Dribbling a football and then stopping it with your foot! Balancing a ball on a racquet. Kicking seems a favourite of Isaac’s and he is very good at getting the ball from one end of the room to the other. Plus lots of fun games to try!

The age range is 2 up to 5.

I highly recommend Sports4Tots in Bournemouth & Poole and Mick is offering the first two sessions free to see if your little one likes it!
