THE GIFT OF SPORTS
Have a mom who’s hard to buy for? Want to give her an experience rather than more “stuff”? Give your mom the gift of sports this Mother’s Day (how rad does that sound?!).
If you need a reminder of why women should be active in sports in adulthood, check out our article with 4 reasons why women should play sports as adults here!
Here’s some ways you can give mom one of the best gifts of all: Believing in her and supporting her sports dreams.
- Give mom new sports equipment/gear or get her started with gear for a new sport. You can even get creative and find items that allow her to practice sports safely at home (depending on restrictions in your area).
- Give mom a gift card for sports lessons from a local league or training service.
- Give mom sessions with a trainer to help her reach her athletic goals and light everyone up when sports are fully back in action.
- Sign mom up for a sports team she’s always wanted to join (if it’s safe to do so).
EVEN BETTER! Grab these things or sign her up for a team you can play on together. Nothing beats sports AND quality time with mom!

We know sports haven’t looked “normal” the last year, but what we do know is they will be back and your mom could use some new team gear to cheer on her favourite team!
