Basketball Nets Will Have Your Kids Jumping Into Sports

Obesity rates in children are on the rise and with all of the visual entertainment competing for attention, it can be hard to imagine how to get your children active. According to the American Heart Association, nearly one in every three children are overweight or obese. From 1971 to 2011, rates nearly tripled. With the rise in video games, computers and addictive television programming available for children, outdoor play has decreased drastically over the decades. It is time to put an end to sedentary childhoods and make outdoor play a fun and enjoyable experience.


Outdoor play is a necessity for an active and healthy lifestyle, and that goes for kids just as much as adults. Your best memories were made playing pickup sports and going on adventures, not watching television. Learning can be promoted through active play, too: running, jumping, throwing, catching and lifting are just some of the ways a child can develop physical, manipulative and motor skills.
