Floor hockey! Team sports. Kids getting exercise running from goal to goal. Floor hockey teaches team spirit, and respect for other players. Our main goal for enrolling our son in floor hockey was for him to stay active, no video games, and get exercise to help slim him up a bit. Hubby has been telling me if we don’t keep our son active he’ll grow up just like he did. A fat kid. Our son loves to eat and he’s been putting on weight. I’m not complaining by no means but I has dropped a few pounds and he’s having a great time. We’ve cut back on junk food and now offer healthier snacks which I’m sure helps.
Activity’s like floor hockey are great for kids. They run back and forth on the gym floor chasing the puck, lining up, running drills and setting up for a goal. Their coaches are fabulous and they’ve really taught the kids well. They donate their time and we’re really grateful to have them.
The experience has not only been great for him but it’s also been fun for the whole family. Hubby’s aunts and uncle come out for a few games and grandpa comes over to watch, too. It allows us all to spend an hour a week together.
The kids love cheering on their brother as he runs across the floor to get the puck and gets a goal.
There’s nothing better than seeing the look on his face when he scores a goal. He’s so proud of himself and beams from his eyes and his soul with pride. I love watching him play and love that he loves being a part of the team.
He’s loves playing Kids Floor Hockey and I love that the school district two towns offers so affordable even for non-residents!
If you can’t afford after school activities in your park district check out the prices in the park districts in towns around you. Our local park district programs are about $50 higher than the park districts programs in towns around us. We’ve even found that some after school programs can be cheaper.
I’m so grateful for after school programs that allow my children to get out and interact with other children while learning a fun sport.
Do you put your children in after school sport programs or activities? What programs do they like?
