Tips and tricks for introducing young kids to winter sports.

By Greg Whittaker

West Seattle is experiencing a baby boom. Everywhere you look you new families are out and about experiencing all that we have to offer. Our family has joined the West Seattle Soccer Club and it seems to be a good indicator of just how many kids are here, during the last 2 years the league has had a hard time getting coaches for all the 5-6 year old teams that are up and coming, and it seems there is a very young boom happening.

So, these tips are for those of you who have little ones that are now out of diapers and ready to get up into the mountains. If you are new to skiing, introducing your kids into it can get you into a new lifetime sport. Having had a bit of experience with others and my own children, I have some great tips to help you make it worth your while as well as your kids while to get out and enjoy yourself in the mountains.

Basketball coaches needed for winter youth recreational league

information from Seattle Parks Dept.

Basketball season is just around the corner, and at Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) that means hundreds of Seattle youth will be coming in to the community centers to sign up for teams.

It also means that we will need volunteer coaches for those teams. If you’re 18 or older, have a love of basketball, and want to be a positive influence in youths’ lives – consider becoming a coach! Visit our website at http://www.seattle.gov/parks/volunteer and register as a volunteer. We require that all coaches also pass our background check before working with youth.

You can coach at a center near your home or work with any of the 26 centers across the city. Not all centers get enough kids of the same age group for a team, in which case more than one center may put together enough kids to form a team. If your child and/or neighborhood kids are interested in playing, and you are interested in coaching, the staff at any community center can help form a team.

To register online please go to: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?AP=1483382340
