I have notice that children nowadays are becoming more sedentary compared to children of past generations. Perhaps, we could blame it with the modern technology such as computer games, cables and Internet. But, at least some parents are introducing their children to organized sports at relatively earlier ages. They are very concerned about their children’s health. Physical activity in children is an integral part of achieving fitness and can decrease the risk of developing future health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. Speaking of sport participation, I stumble upon a site that allows youth groups to get active. Sogo Active wants Canadian youth from coast to coast to spark inspiration in each other to become active and have fun. SOGO Active is unlike any other youth fitness initiative because it gives young Canadians the tools to design, change and control their own individual get active plan. SOGO allows you to make connections, teams and plans with your friends. You can also use SOGO Active to track progress and share information, challenges and successes. The most amazing part of this site is that it encourages people to create their own path of ‘positivity’ in everyday life by believing that anything is possible. If you need facilities, equipment or resources, Sogo hosts are ready to help you. For more information, kindly visit their official website.
