Baby it’s cold outside, but that doesn’t mean the kids should be cooped up indoors staring at screens all winter. All that youthful energy needs to be released before a major case of cabin fever sets in, so we’ve crafted a handy list of places to take the kids to keep them active all year long.

MYSPORT AFTER SCHOOL AT THE SUWANEE SPORTS ACADEMY
Suwanee Sports Academy’s MySport program is the ideal place for parents looking for something different than traditional aftercare. The kids who participate in MySport have a great time while having the opportunity to try many different sports. Time is set aside each day for homework as soon as the kids arrive from school. After a healthy snack, the kids hit the courts for a warm- up and learn the sport of the day. The best part is the program offers flexibility for parents who want their child to participate in different sports after school but may not need five days per week. MySport believes sports and physical activity make lasting impacts on individuals and communities. Not only does participation in sports at a young age lead to healthier and more active lifestyles, it also helps kids learn valuable lessons. These include teamwork, sportsmanship, and the value of working toward a common goal. Most of all, sports and exercise should be fun!
