Lab was awesome with the kids, they really seem like a fun group and willing to play new games. That age group is a lot of fun because of their willingness to play just about anything. Laura and I played walk to dog with a hula-hoop, and then Holy and I teamed up to play the pass the hula-hoop game with several kids and they had a blast...so did I. I can't wait to go back and play new games with the kids!

I think that it is important for young kids to learn new sports and to always be trying new things. With that being said it is also important that while the kids are using things like lax sticks, baseball bats and hockey sticks that they are taught how to use them properly. It is also important that they understand that they are used in sport and not as a weapon. These things used in sports is especially good for young kids because of their constant yearning to learn new things, it also expands their hand-eye coordination beyond their own limbs. It is on the parents to control how much the kids use these tools of sport. It is also very important that parents understand that their kids have to get the basics of their own motor development down before they extend it with lax sticks and baseball bats.
