SPORTS AND BEING ACTIVE FOR LIFE

A Life Long Process

Participation in youth sports can be a helpful part of the process of developing physical skills and life skills.  And, at the heart of youth participation in sports is about building character, learning life lessons, developing friendships, being active, and making sure that children just play in the moment and enjoy the experience.
