The Importance of Physical Activity For Kids

Kid's Next Level & Sports Performance For Kids Things have really changed for kids throughout Louisiana, especially when it comes to sports. Many schools have postponed or discontinued many sports from soccer and baseball to football and basketball. Unfortunately, this means that kids will not get the practice or the physical activity of the sport. According to the CDC, children and adolescents ages 6-17 years of age should do 60 minutes or more of moderate to rigorous physical activity each day. Physical activity is essential for the overall health of kids reducing the risk of developing health conditions like high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and even cancer.  It is important to make sure that young athletes still have the opportunity to be physically active even if sports are no longer part of the daily routine. There are other options available for kids to keep up with their sports performance and prepare for when the sports are back.

What Is Sports Performance for Kids?

Sports performance is the training of the body to prepare an athlete for a specific sport or activity. Sports performance for kids is designed for the safety of kids and it is different for each participant. Each young athlete is unique and must be trained based on his/her individual characteristics including age, gender and fitness level. The goal is to improve the athlete’s performance using a comprehensive training program designed to increase strength and agility while preventing injuries.
