Big Bro has been pretty athletic his entire life. From a young boy, he's had an interest in all types of sports from football and basketball to track and extreme sports. We've encouraged and supported him the entire time and are proud of the person he is, no matter what. It's all about supporting young athletes, and helping them to do their best.
Sports can be pretty competitive and it's easy for youngathletes(and their parents) to get discouraged. But as parents, I believe it's our job to root for them no matter how good they are, or aren't. So he's having a bad day and dropping the ball at every turn - big deal. Keep on cheering and let him have fun with it. Most of these young athletes?won't end up in the big leagues anyway and the ones that will are getting noticed, so don't worry! I encourage parents and coaches to just keep the fun in the game for all players - win or lose.
The motto of the story is that every young athlete has potential.
At the end of the day, life goes on and we need to remember that these are just young people. That's why I'm excited to share about the POWERADE?"Just a Kid" campaign because they get it and some of us could use a reminder here and there. With the right motivation, every young athlete can realize their potentialandPOWERADE?gets that! Every athlete has a story to be told and each of them has one thing in common, they're all "just a kid" from somewhere.
You can show your support for young athletes in your community with custom "Just a Kid" gear. Choose?a hoodie, t-shirt and more, then customize it with the name of your city to represent! And the best part is that all net proceeds go right back into the community, to help support Boys & Girls Club of America! But that's not all, because you can snag a free POWERADE custom sports bottle?from Walmart, when you purchase two 8-packs of 20 oz POWERADE This offer is good through April 4, 2016 or while supplies last and you can learn all about it here.
Big Bro loves the great tasting flavors of POWERADE and makes sure he keeps a bottle on hand to replenish the electrolytes lost when he's sweating from playing hard. As a mom, I love that it's affordable!
So remember, we're all "Just a Kid" from somewhere, each of us with our own unique story to be told. We all deserve support, encouragement and a fair shot at everything that life has to offer! And don't forget to get social with POWERADE on Facebook and @POWERADE on Twitter!
