How to support your athlete’s in their dreams

how to support your kids dreams

My sons and daughter have all enjoyed playing sports! They have all chosen different sports to play. They’re different athletes and I wouldn’t expect anything else! As a mom I’ve enjoyed watching them all do what they love. Have you ever wondered how you can support your athlete’s dreams? It’s not that hard!

Get them involved in whatever sport they choose to play!

My youngest son played basketball when he was younger. It’s a tough sport and you do a lot of running! That’s a great reason for me to make sure he gets hydrated. I’m the mom that’s my job and another way to show support for him and his dreams! He’s still just an athlete from Smyrna! Check out his basketball pics! The cutest…just lie to me and tell me he is.


Support them in making decisions about the sports they play!

My daughter did gymnastics for 4 years and was such a good gymnast! I miss her doing gymnastics. But at some point she stopped enjoying it. When she stopped enjoying it we stopped doing it. As a mom I didn’t want her to stop. But it’s not about me. It’s about her. So I miss gymnastics and she probably does too. But she’ll never admit to it and she doesn’t want to go back. Sometimes it’s hard to let our athlete’s make their own decisions but they deserve the right too!

Be there for them!

My oldest did karate for years. He loved that sport. Our athletes are all different in their ability and levels and love to do different things! Our job as moms is to be there for them. To take them to their lessons and sports and to lift them up when they fall. They will fall.

There’s a lot that a mom does to get her athletes ready for their games or sports. We have to make sure they have eaten a good meal. Did they get enough rest? Do they have their water bottle? Did I remember to buy POWERADE at WalMart? Do I have enough gas in the car to get them to all their tournaments? We are the athletic cheerleaders for our minions. It’s so great to be able to be there to do this for them.

Athletes are full of potential and need support in reaching for their dreams. POWERADE is there for them too.

  1. I love the idea of supporting them to be who they are and not pushing them to be something you just want them to be. As a father of a girl that excels at almost every sport she has tried, it is hard to tell where she will end up but I know that I will be her BIGGEST supporter no matter what!

  2. My kids used to take karate together. Keeping them fed and hydrated and taking them to practice were all my favorite ways to support their budding athleticism! I even took some karate classes with them.

  3. I think involving kids in sports is so important as it helps build confidence. My daughter has found that she loves softball.

  4. Great tips! My son is still too little to play sports, but my husband is already teaching how to throw a football and catch. I know sports will be a big part of his life…and mine.

  5. It’s so important to support kids in sports. I quit almost every sport I tired when I was a kid and I really wish I had people to support me because maybe I would have tried harder. There’s no better gift than the gift for support/being there for a child.

  6. Supporting your child in the activity they enjoy is so important and beneficial! It is great for kids to work toward goals they create for themselves.

  7. I love this campaign. Your kids are so cute. Sports are so important and I hope all schools keep it as a part of a child’s day.

  8. I definitely am supportive so long as they do a good job maintaining balance in their focus. It’s great to have an athletic dream, but it’s tricky to keep it all in check.

  9. Definitely support them in what they want to do, there is no point in forcing them to do what you think is right for them. We are all individual and we should support our children to be their own person

  10. My kids play sports as well and we don’t leave the house without Powerade. It’s a must have before and after a game for us.

  11. My son has done swimming, bowling league, martial arts, basketball and soccer. I don’t know what he will do next, he is only 11.
