I have 3 very active little athletes, each with their own unique abilities. My 9 year old son, Buzz, is a climber with unabashed energy and I’m sure would scale Mt. Everest without a second thought. There’s also my 12 year old son, Jedi. He has all of these great ideas, but has only so far really taken to soccer.
Then we have my daughter. My Abby, who is the biggest adventurer of them all. She’s a runner, and her long 7 year old legs can move. She’s also the first one who learned how to ride a bike, the first who learned how to swim, and she’ll always be the first to say let’s get outside.
While none of my athletes are on an organized sports team yet, I still know how important it is to encourage their athletic abilities. I witnessed this with my brother growing up, who was a member of just about every team possible at one point or another, though loved baseball. And my parents always encouraged and showed up for every one of his games.
Encouraging your young athlete’s potential is one of the greatest gifts. As parents, we know that there is that possibility in all of us, and we all start in the same place as everyone else. As a rookie full of potential and big dreams. At the end of the day, we are all â€œjust a kidâ€ from somewhere. And POWERADE has been there to quench the thirst of those young athletes for decades.
“Just a Kid” Campaign
POWERADE believes that with the right motivation these everyday athletes can realize their potential and one day be the athletes that they look up to. Sports have a major impact on our communities. Whether it is t-ball or the pros, every athlete in every league has a story waiting to be told.
