When it comes to navigating extra-curricular activities for the kids there are always many moving parts and things to consider; what’s affordable, what’s manageable for the whole family, what’s most beneficial and of course for them, it’s what are all of their friends doing.
I’m a single mum with three kids at all different ages and all of them need and want different things when it comes to sporting activities. It’s hard to find something that ticks all of the boxes, for me included.
Autumn wanted to do gymnastics, Lux is all about parkour and Van wanted to learn how to flip. Try figuring that one out! What’s most important for me is that if I’m investing in an activity I want it to not only be fun for the kids but beneficial as well.
Kids need to make a connection between fun and exercise and set up positive habits and a healthy mindset towards being active. They need a fun and inclusive environment to allow them to make heaps of friends and develop their social skills. Most of all, they need to build balance, strength and coordination which are so important for all areas of life especially moving into adulthood.
This term we decided to try out Flight Squad at Bounce and wow, are the kids loving it! They are learning new tricks every week, perfecting their trampoline skills, their confidence is through the roof and most importantly they are having a blast. The added convenience of having all three doing one activity at the same time and place means that I can sit in the tuckshop with a coffee and get some work done while I pretend to watch them (hehe).
If your kids are looking to gain coordination and strength and if they are begging to flip and fly, then this could be the activity for you.
