5 Reasons Cheer and Dance Rules!

5 Reasons Cheer and Dance Rules!

 

Yes, of course sports are great, especially cheerleading and dancing! They’re fun and they keep our kids active. But there are so many reasons – beyond keeping our kids physically active – that ALL sports are, simply awesome. Here are our top five reasons:

#1 – Socialization. Social skills last a lifetime and participating in sports and cheerleading or dance is the perfect way to build those skills. Athletes need to learn to communicate and work with their teammates and fellow athletes, but also learn to communicate effectively with coaches and other adults. That socialization leads to better communication and relationships in the present and years to come.

#2 – They build confidence. In sports, it isn’t rare that you’ll find someone who “knocks it out of the park” on the first try: It’s unheard of. Cheerleading in particular, is all about trying again and testing your limits – both of which, when done properly, will lead to success and new skills which, in turn, lead to building confidence. And beyond building that skill, cheer and dance also offer an opportunity to celebrate those wins with others, building social confidence.

#3 – Kids in cheerleading or dance learn to challenge themselves. Some people just go farther in life. We’re willing to bet those people played sports. From an early age, athletes learn that practice makes better and that they not only need to push themselves to succeed, but that when they do succeed, it’s time to push themselves even further. That’s one of the best things about athletics: they never get “easy” and there really isn’t any such thing as perfect – there’s just better and a constant path of new challenges. It’s part of what keeps a given activity interesting and part of why true athletes have so much drive – in all facets of life.

#4 – Kids who play sports tend to also have better grades. Numerous studies have drawn a correlation between sports and good grades and test scores. According to a 2015 Penn State University and University of South Carolina study,1 kids who play sports also have a higher likelihood of completing high school and enrolling in college. Another study of 35,000 students in the Los Angeles Unified School District found that athletes also have higher attendance, attending school an average of 21 more days than non-athlete counterparts. There are plenty of studies with positive sport-education performance findings – and it’s hard to beat that kind of win-win!

#5 – Sports build your own community. Yes, sports are an amazing outlet for our kids – socially, physically and emotionally. But they’re also a great outlet for parents. Parenting can be lonely and cheerleading can be a great avenue to find new parent friends you share common ground with. And, let’s be honest – with all those practices and game/match days, liking and knowing the parents is an amazing thing.

4 On-the-Go Eats

4 On-the-Go Eats You and Your Active Athletes Will Love

Odds are that you’ve already kicked off 2018 with plenty of promises and intentions to carry through the year with a happier, healthier family. Keep your active kids – and yourself – running at your peak with healthy eats, no matter how on the go your life may be.

  1. Deli wrap-ups – Deli meat has plenty of on-the-go potential and, added bonus, it’s versatile! Simply top it with your choice of dressing or spread and wrap it around your choice of filling. Here are a few favorite combos:
    • Turkey + mustard + cheese
    • Chicken + low-fat mayo + celery stick
    • Ham + cheddar + carrot stick
    • Turkey + Greek yogurt cream cheese + apple sticks

2. “Emma & Tom’s Snack Bars”- Emma & Tom’s Snack Bars are the perfect superfood health bars packed with raw nuts and preservative free dried fruit. The bars contain real ingredients and are minimally processed with no added sugar. They are a great pre training or after training snack and are a healthy and delicious way to help look after yourself! You can find these yummy snack bars at Woolworths supermarkets Australia wide.

3. Tapas On-the-Go – You know what they say; variety is the spice of life. Plus, what’s more fun than finger food? Have some fun and mix things up with a healthy bento box of finger foods. Consider low-fat cheese cubes, travel-friendly fruits (such as grapes or strawberries), olives, boiled eggs, raw nuts, hummus and veggies (carrots, celery, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes and broccoli florets all keep well).

4. Yogurt – Yogurt is the gift that keeps on giving, providing Calcium and, in many cases, fruits. Opt for a low-fat Greek yogurt and make sure to check the labels before buying – though many are called Greek yogurt, they’re still loaded with sugars (sometimes as high as 24 grams in a serving!). Chobani is a great high protein option located at Woolworths or Coles. If you can’t find a fruit option with low sugar content (no more than six-seven grams per serving), opt for plain. Top it off with a natural, no sugar added muesli and fresh fruit for a well-rounded meal any time of day.

Staying healthy on the go doesn’t have to be impossible, require Instagram-worthy plating, or take tons of time. Keep it simple and you’ll keep it achievable – this month and the next 11 that follow.
