Monday’s Giveaway: Summer Camp at Play it Now Sports

Today we are giving away…

Summer Camp (a $99 value)

from Play it Now Sports

It’s summer…time for the kids to RUN and JUMP and PITCH and SPIKE and KICK!

Play it Now Sports just opened earlier this year with 45,000 square feet at 5025 N. Academy Blvd.  There’s plenty of room for indoor baseball, basketball, flag football, soccer, and volleyball.  Today, we’re giving away a summer camp to one lucky reader, a $99 value.

Why choose Play it Now Sports for your kids’ summer camps?  “No weather cancellations (it’s all indoors), great pricing, all-day camps, different dates, multiple ages and maximum fun”, that’s why!

At Play it Now Sports, we offer kids leagues for multiple sports. Organized teams, volunteer coaches, 6 seasons throughout the year, leagues for different days of the week, ages 4-14, incredible facility, great location, restrooms, concesssions, free parking, bleachers, cafe seating area, and it’s all indoors. Just choose your favorite sport to play.

Now, here is what I love about Play it Now Sports.  Do you find yourself driving all over town, rushing to get kids to practices and games?  Siblings can all play their chosen sports at the same time and place, thanks to Play it Now Sports.

I completely agree with the Play it Now Sports philosophy:

One factor we have noticed over the years is that a lot of kids get burned out at an early age by their parents pushing them too hard to get “good” by being competitive.  While there is nothing wrong with being competitive in sports and pushing kids to be their best we feel that especially with younger kids (4-10 year olds)  a simpler “let’s have fun” approach can be beneficial.  Kids at those ages are just learning motor skills (how to kick a ball, throwing, catching, shooting, etc) and the goal is for them to have fun so that when they do get a little older they still enjoy playing.  Then as the kids do get older the competition and winning is an added dimension that becomes special to the game that they now love to play.
