Spending time with your child can feel difficult when they are busy going to school, practicing their instruments, completing their homework, and going to practice for their sports teams. However, there are many easy ways to get involved with your child’s sports team to spend more time with them and get a better relationship. Here are some of our favorites!
While your child probably practices with other members of their team once or twice a week, they probably don’t have practice with you on the schedule. Take some time on a weekday or weekend to practice the core skills of their sport with them. Take a trip to pick out some new gear to keep around the house and spend time throwing the baseball back and forth or practicing relay skills.
Reach Out to Sponsors
Sponsorship (all of those businesses listed on the back of your child’s little league shirt) is a big business for child sports teams. Consider soliciting new sponsors or reaching out to new businesses to see if you can bring in more money to the team. If you aren’t looking for money but something specific, like baseball bats, don’t be afraid to ask for those either.
Hosting a Fundraiser
Fundraising is the backbone that allows your child’s sports team to exist. Without it, practice facilities, game day transportation, uniforms, and equipment wouldn’t be a possibility. Hosting a fundraiser is a great way to get involved with your child’s sports team and teach them valuable leadership skills that will help them for the rest of their lives. It can also help the team to meet their fundraising goals, go on more trips, and get better quality equipment. Claire’s Gourmet makes sports team fundraising easy!
