The Oakville Girls Softball Association
Today’s children are heavier, fatter, rounder and weaker than they were a generation ago.
Only 1 in 20 kids get the recommended 60-minutes of physical activity each day. And the problem is especially bad with young girls.
Daily activities such as walking to school, physical education classes, after school activities, chores and general playing have been replaced with a sedentary lifestyle in front of the TV or computer, eating junk food. We need to get our children active and summer is the perfect time to start!
But just running around isn’t enough. Kids have specific physiological and social needs, and their fitness activities need to match their specific stage of growth and development.
Organized team sports provide children with a great opportunity to get physically fit and active. Team sports are fun and enjoyable. And children learn better when they are with friends who are the same age, working together as a team, and learning at the same pace as their peers.
One of the best team sports is girls softball.
