Sports was such a lifeblood for me growing up and is still ingrained in me today. I often wonder how technology has affected our youth and the time spent outside. I remember the days growing up when your parents kicked you out of the house, and your time to be home was not measured by a cellphone or an app, but when the street light came on. You did not want to be in the house anyway; that meant chores or some other work. Being outside, playing with your friends or neighbors until dark, that was where the fun and activity was. Youth sports taught me discipline, teamwork, how to deal with success, better yet, how to deal with failure. I have said many times before, sports is the last reality show going. You have to deal with so many things instantly from both a physical and mental side. How we handle the increased time constraints on youth sports will help determine how society will go forward. At Calvary, we want to give as many children as possible the opportunity to play sports. That is why we are offering quality options that are open to any student, whether a Calvary student or not. We hope you will join us.
