Sports Activity Day

I used my D.I.Y. Day Camp Sports Activity Day to expose my children to sports they might not necessarily try at school. Some of these suggestions are equipment dependent. If you plan, you can likely set up the option to borrow from a neighbor, who may have what you need. Second-hand or consignment stores are another affordable option to explore. The great things about all these options is that it gets them moving and could possibly pique interest in getting more involved in a sport they currently don’t play.

Day hikes are great options you can do one close to home or pack a picnic and do something more formal.

Red Rocks Workout, run the rows or stair climb. It’s good to do multiple times to build endurance and set goals. Plus, you can't beat the venue.

Soccer check out your county’s soccer fields, where clubs play. They are often deserted during the weekdays and can be a great option to work on skills and have some fun. Your local school fields may be an option, as well. Think: GOAL!!!!!!

Tennis Google tennis games for kids and hit your nearest community court.

Basketball  Google basketball games for kids and hit your nearest community court.

Football check out your county’s football fields, where clubs play. They are often deserted during the weekdays and can be a great option to work on skills and have some fun. Your local school fields may be an option, as well. So, get out there and toss/kick the pigskin around.

Base/Softball a few gloves and a ball are great for simple games of catch and you can throw in a bat, if you’re adventurous (and quick).

LaCrosse this is a similar option to Base/Softball. Build coordination and skills by trying out this up-and-coming sport.

Skate roller or ice -- it’s a blast. Just look up your community's open skate options and work it into your schedule.

Trampoline check out your nearest trampoline park for their daily deals and jump away!

Bike head to the park or some other point of interest and incorporate lunch while you’re there. If you can transport bikes, check out these great options… http://coloradoparent.com/article/what-a-ride.html

Swim community or neighborhood pools are always a great option for fun and frolic. Just Google best pools in your metro area for options near you.
