Something Fun For All Ages
Looking to get your kids involved with sports? Valley-Wide still has room for kids to play Baseball and Softball. Ages range from ages 5-14. They have a little something for everyone, starting with t-ball, machine pitch, coach pitch, and also player vs. player.
Sign-ups end February 21st for most divisions and opening day is scheduled to be April 4th at the Diamond Valley baseball fields. The opening day events are usually a great spectacle for everyone to come out and cheer. Often times they bring out a former professional baseball player to give a speech to the kids. There are usually plenty of vendors with shopping opportunities and food trucks available if you are feeling hungry. Valley-Wide pulls out all the stops for the kids to enjoy themselves: bounce houses and jumpers and also the parade of the teams as all of the parents and fans get to watch the kids run the bases. It’s one of the bigger events in our valley and something everyone looks forward to.
However, Valley-Wide doesn’t only offer things for the kids. Maybe it’s time to dust off your old sneakers and join a basketball team? Right now Valley-Wide has sign-ups for adult basketball teams. Here is your chance to stop talking about the glory days and remind everyone how great you once were. The hardwood is calling your name…come out and show your kids what you are all about. There are also Slow-Pitch softball sign-ups available. These are generally Co-ed teams. You have to come in with a full team when you sign up. Ages are 18-up and games are played in various fields all around the valley. So get out that gear and start your stretching because it’s time to get back on the field and play some softball with your family and friends.
We often forget as adults that our health is just as important as our kids’. Physical and Mental health often coincide with each other, but we forget to take care of our physical selves. With all of the stress at work at home, it can often become overwhelming and exhausting to keep up with life and we ignore the fact that we need to keep up with ourselves. The idea of exercising or competing often makes us think, “dang that sounds like a lot of extra work.” however, an article found on www.adaa.org states that “exercise and friendly competition is the most effective way to reduce stress.” Maybe that’s just what you need to get out of your current funk. if you have been dealing with stress and feeling stuck in life maybe it’s the time step out of the comfort zone and try something to new. After all, you know what they say, “a body in motion, stays in motion.”
