Sports, Sport, Sports! No matter what time of the year, there is always a sport in season. What’s funny is that even if families aren’t watching a sport on TV, they are probably participating in them in one way or another.

6 Ways To Prepare For Your Child Playing Sports - TM2S

Our children participating in sports involves some preparation on our part.  So here are 6 ways to prepare for your child playing sports:

  • Talk to your child and see what their interests are.  You want to be sure they like it before committing them to it.
  • Do some research and find out what it entails.  You should be sure that it fits your lifestyle and that your child (and your family) can commit to it.
  • Get them registered.  Do that sooner than later so that it doesn’t fill up and so that you have time to get everything you need for it.
  • Buy their supplies and uniforms.
  • Add practices and games to the calendar.  You want to make sure you get them on your calendar so that you don’t schedule to 2 things accidentally. Remember, you’ve made a commitment.
  • Get their physicals done.  Even if your sport doesn’t require it, it’s important to make sure your little ones are healthy & safe to participate.

Saving Money, Time & Sanity Tips

  • Shop around for pricing before signing them up.  A quick online search may just save you some money.
  • Check and see if there are used equipment and uniforms available BUT verify that they are in excellent condition.
  • Check out MinuteClinic for the sports physicals.  They are only $39 for a limited time (which $20 off). For more information, visit,
