Celebrate the End of the Sports Season with Your Kids!

girlssoccerMy daughter’s fall soccer season is coming to an end. And it’s a little sad for her and her mom! This is the first time she has played a team sport. And while we may not be on our way to a soccer scholarship, we all enjoyed the experience. This is actually the time of year when most fall sports start wrapping up, so here are some ideas on how to reward your little soccer/football/field hockey/basketball star.

1- Plan a season ending team party
Help your coaches plan a fun party for the entire team and their families. We all took part in all the practices and games, so the party should be for everyone. Some ideas include a private home party, an ice cream social, an activity party like laser tag, the trampoline park, bowling or ice skating. It might also be fun to plan a competitive party where the kids face off against the parents.

2- Plan an awards ceremony
While kids are still young, its a good idea to encourage them to keep playing. Why not hand out awards to each child for something specific. For example; MVP, Best goalkeeper, Best cheerleader, Best team player etc. A little encouragement goes a long way.

3- Plan a trip to a professional sporting event
What better way to celebrate a successful football or soccer season then to see the pros in action. My daughter’s soccer team is planning a trip to a college soccer game for everyone to enjoy. Your little athlete will love to see how others play their sport.

4- Put together a scrapbook & slideshow
Kids love to remember their season in pictures. So put together a scrapbook of pictures, notes, schedules, newspaper clippings and anything else that reminds your child of the season. A slideshow is also fun to do with the entire team to remember their successful season. My daughter’s team actually posted pictures to Shutterfly so we could all grab photos from all the parents and coaches.

5- Treat your child to what they love
It’s always a great idea to reward your kids with something they love to do. Maybe a trip to the movies, or to get their favorite ice cream. And include the team to make the celebration even more special.

Win or lose, your little athlete worked hard this season and deserves to celebrate. Find something that will make them feel special and encourage them to continue playing next season.
