Got kids in sports? Then this page is for you.

Mine my kids are active in sports, some of them in the competitive realm. Hockey and ringette in the winter months, gymnastics for the girl child, and baseball and tennis during the summer months.

It doesn’t get any easier, even with experience… but one thing is for certain. There are no dull moments in households with kids in sports.
