One of the very first things parents should do when preparing their kids for sports is to get a checkup.
Many clinics offer special days specifically for sports physicals. Medical officials want to remind parents that this is an important time to mention any previous injuries.
Before practice begins, the whole family should work out a schedule. Who's going to practice and game days. And don't forget to set aside a time for study.
Sports are an important part of development. They increase overall physical fitness, develop teamwork skills, provides practice for setting goals and improves time management skills.
