This video on Top Ten Kids Sports Moments put out by Sports Center is a reminder that sports is not just about adults, it’s about kids too.
Kids love sports for the pure fun and enjoyment of the experience. They may not care who wins, how many runs or touchdowns are scored or who gets the MVP award.
They only know the excitement, the fun food, and the fun of cheering for their team.
In fact, I think if we didn’t tell them who won the game, they might not even care. They just want to have fun.
Adults have a way of spoiling that innocence. We have a way of tainting the purity of a child’s enjoyment of sport. We are obsessed with winning, with success, and with being sure our child gets what he deserves.
As you view these Top Ten Kid Sports Moments, let it serve as a reminder to sports parents everywhere to do your best to keep sports fun for your kids. And to enjoy those moments with them.
