How to Set an Example of Good Sportsmanship for Your Kids—from the Sidelines

Published on: 10/11/2020 06:00

As parents, we understand that the fundamentals of life start at home. We spend time caring for and encouraging our babies to crawl, our toddlers to dress themselves, and our teenagers to reach for the stars. We know what to do when they react with frustration because they don’t accomplish putting on their shoes. We gently come alongside them and encourage them to try again. We do that same thing when we watch their sports games, too – don’t we? Not necessarily! Sometimes, we act much like a toddler and less like an adult when we sit along the sidelines and scream out as our kids play their match.

Published on: 9/28/2020 10:18

A yoga studio should be a peaceful place for you and your students to slow down, breathe deeply, and practice your meditative poses. A sense of peace and calm starts with your surroundings. Hardwood is a popular choice of studio owners and yogis for its timeless elegance, the effect on indoor air quality, durability, and barefoot-friendly surface. However, hardwood is not the only choice or even the best choice for your needs. Other flooring options may be better for your situation.

Published on: 8/19/2020 09:37

Playing a sport teaches children the value of hard work and sportsmanship. It also prepares your athlete for their future when they take up a job and must work with a boss over them. The discipline of regular practices and teamwork cannot be understated. However, within the four leading roles of sports: player, referee, coach, and spectator, a nefarious new position has crept onto the scene – the sideline coach. There are many skills that games teach our children, but the sideline coach can negate all of them.

Help Your Players Hone their Basketball Skills with a Dr. Dish Shooting Machine

One thing that the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us is that when it is time to pivot, we can. Think about how many Canadians started working from home. We have learned to use curbside service for eating out and ordering online has become the primary way of making purchases, groceries included. Families have the opportunity to bond with dinner around the table and a game of hoops in the driveway. Dedicated athletes have changed their regular training in the gym for home options. The same holds for your budding Olympic contender.

Decrease Noise in Your Mixed Used Building with Noise-Reducing Indoor Flooring

Published on: 3/19/2020 15:12

Planning a remodel or a new building takes much forethought. One area to consider is the use of each room, and if it will have multiple applications. For example, will the upstairs wrestling room also house the gymnastics team? When the dance team needs to practice, will their stomping be disruptive to the basketball team planning their game strategy in the space below? Consider the noise that travels throughout the building that houses your aerobics and Pilates studio. How do you keep other tenants from complaining about the sound? These scenarios apply to the home gym as well. It’s crucial to find ways to reduce sound transfer to keep the peace. Read More

With all the fun and enjoyment, safety in sports simply cannot be stressed enough. Each practice and every game leaves athletes at risk of injury.

Boys and Girls clubs, community centres, small recreation centres, churches, mosques and other places of worship all want to encourage youth and the community to use their facility and be active.

While this may be partly due to funding, it may also be due to a lack of knowledge of what the options are.
