My little girl is getting into sports and she is having so much fun! She just started a karate/gymnastics class where she learns how to control her body movements and gain strength. It is a great program tailored specifically for children her age who are not ready for karate. She asks to go back each time we leave, so I know she is having fun. This is the most important factor for me- she HAS to have fun. Once specific sports are no longer fun for her, I won’t push her to do them.
Along with gymnastics, she is also signed up for swimming lessons. She has only taken one class so far and hasn’t made it back because I was a little busy having another baby. Now that life with a newborn has settles down, she will be resuming swimming lessons next week. She’s a natural in the water and really enjoys playing and splashing. What kid doesn’t?
I didn’t realize when I signed her up for sports that she would need specific gear to go along with her new hobbies. I figured anything she needed would be provided, but I was totally wrong. It’s a good thing stores like RookieUSA exist! When you need sports gear for your child, whether they are in soccer, swimming, or any other type of sport, RookieUSA has everything you need in one location. This is great because realistically, who wants to be travelling from one place to another to find the proper gear for children’s sports?
My toddler loves to wear girlie girl clothes, but when it comes to sports she is all about the gear. Of course, she likes everything to be pink. In karate she really can’t get away with it- there is no pink belt, but in swimming she can choose her favorite swimsuit and matching shoes. Of course they are pink! RookieUSA sent her some fun sporty clothes to get her started on her favorite sports clothes. Her favorite was a blue and white star shirt, my favorite was the Nike shorts. I loved the shorts because they are perfect for any summer sport. The outside of the shorts are soft and the inside has an attached panty that prevents chafing. My little one picks her favorites based on style, whereas I choose my favorites based on functionality.
When you head over to the RookieUSA site, you can sign up to receive a $20 gift card to their store. That’s a great way to get started on your child’s sporting gear! Check out my little Rookie sporting some styles that were sent from RookieUSA:
