Tip on how to teach your child to pump their legs when they swing

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

We love this foolproof tip on how to teach your child to swing – which a friend at the neighborhood playground shared.

To get your child to pump, stand a safe distance in front of her/him, hold your hands within tippy toes distance & then have the child try to “kick” your hand. The motion you are aiming for is to have your little swinger put their feet up high in the air & then bend their legs — i.e. to pump.

So hold your hand flat in the air where you want them to get their feet . Have another adult stand a safe distance behind them, so as they go back down, tell them to bend their knees. Repeating “Kick and Bend, Kick and Bend.”

Then have them try to touch the other adult’s hand w/ their feet bent underneath. Hopefully, your child will be swinging on their own!

FREE golf for kids & more at Westin’s The Club at Savannah Harbor

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

This July, enjoy FREE golf for youth, FREE (and paid) youth golf clinics, and other fun family golf opportunities at the Club at Savannah Harbor.

Play Golf America’s Family Golf Month celebrates its fifth anniversary in July encouraging families to hit the links together, giving family members – young and old – the opportunity to learn and play the game in a structured yet casual atmosphere, while having fun.

Kids Play Free every day of the year at The Club at Savannah Harbor, when accompanied by a paying adult, on the nine-hole “short course.” The short course lies within the 18-hole Championship course, with tee placement designed to make it easier for kids to learn the sport, while also making the game more affordable.

Celebrate “Take Your Daughter to the Course Week,” a program designed to promote overall participation in golf, especially among girls and their families, July 9-15, highlighted by a free golf instruction clinic for girls Saturday, July 14th (parents pay just $15 if they, too, decide to participate.)

Engaging young golfers is a major way that Play Golf America’s junior golf programs support Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative to help combat childhood obesity, as studies show that walking the golf course reduces levels of bad cholesterol, burns calories, prevents heart disease, and helps oxygenate the body and improve posture.
