Game on Tip of The Week

It might sound like an obvious tip but remembering to wash your hands consistently can make a big difference. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol before and after you play, as well as before adjusting your mask.

Just so you know...

This year has been hard on every family, and especially kids. The mental health of kids is a major concern of parents as they deal with the ramifications of being pushed to the sidelines for nearly 3 months. It was revealed that 75% of parents agree their kids have been less active, 77% have replaced physical activity with more screen time, and 63% feel this has had a negative impact on mental health. It’s clear that sport fills an incredibly important role in the mental and physical health of children.
