We have a very competitive society when it comes to sports, and as a parent keeping your athlete’s head in the game, yet giving them the ability to be “Just be my son or daughter” is so important. There is potential in every young athlete. Moms & coaches fuel their athlete’s potential by making sure they have everything needed to play their best – whether that’s pregame meals, driving the carpool, or making sure the team is hydrated. Mom carries the team. That being said you always need to know that your athlete is first and foremost #Justakidfrom . So it’s important to help them reach their goals by being supportive of their needs.
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. I help inspire my family by having them try out the sports that are right for them in a fun environment. I also help them keep their options open while still making them carry out their athletic commitments.
Powerade wants to help athletese reach their potential with their new #JustaKidfrom program with the new line of custom “Just a Kid” apparel that features where you’re from here. All net proceeds from the sale of “Just a Kid” apparel goes to the Boys & Girls Club of America.
Because our little athletes need help on their path to greatness it’s important to surround them with positivist in all aspects of their lives. But most important support in reaching their dreams. Thanks to this great program from Powerade many athletese will be able to reach their athletic dreams!

This is really good to read so I can remember to practice these tips with my son.
Having fun and being involved with friends and activities is so important. I like that some funds go to Boys and Girls clubs which is such a worthwhile organization.

I can’t wait until my kids get into sports! I am excited to be a part of it and be there for them in whatever physical activity they choose to do! I really like these “Just A Kid” water bottles, how awesome! 🙂

I always wonder if my kids will be athletic…. I never was! Haha

Sports in general are a great way to keep kids as kids – as long as the parents remember that!
What a great idea, I love that they donate all their proceeds.
I think it very important to let kids be kids even if they don’t win they should be reminded to have fun first.
Amy Hall says
Good advice, I think they need more unstructured time, too, without formal sports teams. Though I actually think they need MORE independent stuff put on their shoulders, they need to know they’re capable!
Jo-Ann Brightman says
I think it is important for all kids to try sports and do their best in them, but have fun too.
Katie hall says

It is important to encourage children to do some activity so that later in life they will remain healthy.
Sport is always good in every way ! Hope not to forget to buy powerade !
My kids love to try all sports, whether they are good at it or not. I wish that parents would remember that they aren’t professionals out there and lay off on pressuring their little ones so much. This is a great idea from Powerade…love the bottle!
Sandy Cain says
This is very important for kids to get out DO things! I hardly ever see kids outside just playing basketball, or softball, or anything anymore. They are all chained to their cellphones and iPads. It’s a shame, we are now raising a whole new generation of couch potatoes, with no physical fitness. Except their thumbs – those get nice and strong from texting!!!
Sabrina Conery says
This is neat. My kids don’t have super common names so they’d lovevthis.
Brittany Hardin says
I am so happy to powerade is giving back to our kids. They are our future professional athletes but the also need to be a kid and have fun while playing sports. We should help them reach their goals!
The just kids water bottle is a great thing for them.
Ashley Chassereau Parks says
I love the “Just a Kid” water bottle!! My daughter would love seeing her name on something like that!! This motto is a great reminder for parents too…. I see so much pressure put on little ones in sports.
Amy Amerson says
Just read an article about how kids need more free time and less stuff for their “mental” health. So I love that phrase “just a kid” I want my kids to have fun and at the same time learn without unhealthy pressure.
