2. GET FIT

National Fitness Expert Ali Holman, founder of CoreCamper.com, insists that too many kids suffer injuries because they aren’t physically prepared. “The biggest mistake kids make is they don’t start conditioning until the first day of tryouts,” Holman says. “You need a solid four weeks to not only perform your best but to reduce injury.”

Ali Holman and Family

As an example, Holman says an adult wouldn’t just show up and run a marathon. “Parents think, ‘Kids are kids, they can do it.’ But you see a rise in injuries,” Holman says, “and a lot of that is poor conditioning.” Holman and her husband Mark emphasize the importance of nutrition and conditioning long before a season starts, and the family does workouts together, often in their yard and cul de sac.
