Getting Your Kids into Sport

By Zoe Conville on April 20th, 2017 - comments

Trade Partners International Limited has created a Parent’s Guide to getting kids into sport.

The guide includes top tips on how to get how to keep children motivated, what organisations can help when starting a new sport or activity, and how vital volunteers are to grass roots sports.

Features in the guide include messages from local initiatives such as Branston Community Academy’s Herons Gym and how volunteering has helped a father and son share an interest at Lindum Cricket Club. Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill also explains how you can get more physically active with Vitality Move.

Janet Inman, CEO of Active Lincolnshire, said: “As one of the 44 County Sports Partnerships in England our focus is on how to support individuals to become active. This might not always be through traditional sports – people often forget that day-to-day activities such as walking, gardening or cycling to the shops all count as physical activity.

“We encourage people, particularly children whilst they’re young, to try a variety of different things and not to worry if they don’t like what someone else likes. Clubs, leisure centres and sports providers hold free taster sessions for lots of sports and activities. The key is to find something you enjoy doing.”
