For many kids, adequate playtime is all they need for physical fitness. If you’re looking for a more formal physical education program, you can sometimes find homeschool gym classes in your community. They usually meet for an hour or two per week, and often involve group sports like soccer or basketball, and games such as kickball, flag football, and tag. The kids can also benefit from the use of the facility where the classes are held, like running on an indoor track, playing on the soccer field, or using a climbing wall, for example. Check with your community rec center or YMCA for these homeschool gym classes.
Another option for getting your child some exposure to organized sports would include things like Little League baseball, or Pee Wee football leagues. Depending on the program, kindergarteners are often old enough to join. Many towns have softball teams for kids, or cheerleading, or any number of other options. Just because they’re homeschooled doesn’t mean they need to miss out on sports and fun!
