Get Team Apparel Sponsorships for kid Sports #SafeskinSports

How many sports do your kids participate in all year long? It seems like most kids go from one sport to the next during the school year and then summer sports. In our home we've had the girls in Soccer, Swim team, Volleyball, Tae Kwon Do and Cheerleading. I love that they have tried a wide variety of sports. I personally have loved watching them participate. Through sports they have learned how to be a team player and that it takes all sorts of people to build a team. Sports taught them about commitment, too. Once they commit to be on a team they have to stay and give their all through the season. If they decide that they do not want to continue then they don't have to participate the next season. This is a sponsored post through Global Influence. My own opinions are expressed here. 

What have your kids learned in sports? Share in the comments below.

As a parent, we have learned that it isn't cheap to participate in sports. No matter what uniforms and supplies need to be purchased. To help cover some of the cost, teams do fundraisers which almost always includes selling food or doing car washes. This is also great character building for the kids. Sometimes the cost is still a burden on families. I just found out about a way for teams to get team apparel sponsorship with Safeskin on 

How does this work? is a social engagement platform which helps groups earn sponsorships from brands for free! They do the hard work and matches up sponsors with group and organizations within the community. This makes sponsorship simple and easy for teams and sponsors. Safeskin Youth Sports Wraps is sponsoring teams across the country. Groups can earn up to $1,000 and it is completely free to participate. So far there are more than 1,400 participants and 100 Pears. 

If your child has a team you can create your own Pear for them. I do not have one right now but if you do create one, let me know. Leave your team info in my comments so that I can come support your team. 

I think it is great that we can use our social networking to help raise money for youth sports team. Check out this video to learn even more as well as website. Good Luck!

Summer fun on the water: Share your on-water adventures! #DiscoverBoating #mc #sponsored

Do you spend your summer on the water? What are some of your favorite on-water adventures? One of my most favorite on-water adventures was when my family was in Aruba. We spent a lot of time out on the water in paddle boats, canoes, pirate ship snorkeling and even riding the waves on a banana boat.  Some of our best family memories were from being out on the water. I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

We are fortunate to live in an area where there are a lot of water activities. Everyone is either fishing, tubing, waterskiing, canoeing, or even just hanging out on the boat. Have you enjoyed any of these activities this summer with the family?

We do not own a boat but members of our church do. They invite us out on the boat to hang out and have fun. Each year our church gathers together on the water for a picnic and afternoon of boating. Everyone brings good food to grill at the shelter and enjoys food all day long. Some tube, swim, jump off the boat into the water and even just hang out on deck in the sun. Here are some photos of one of the on-water adventures!

Another favorite time on water was when we were all at a retreat and many canoes were out on the lake. The canoe my husband was in tipped over! He was not hurt in any way so we do laugh about the experience, now! We are also thrilled that my daughter got photos of the crazy adventure.

Whatever you do, please be safe.

  • Everyone should wear life jackets no matter how well they can swim. It takes 1 second for something to go wrong. 
  • Drink plenty of fluids because that sun will zap the moisture right out of you.
  • Use sunscreen and apply it at least every two hours if you are in the water all day. 
  • Always stay in pairs so if something goes wrong the buddy can call for help.
  • Don't take risky chances. Make sure you know what you are diving into.
I love all of the resources and activities for boating on It is great to have so many educational tools for boaters of all levels on one site. If you are looking for a little bit of boating inspiration then make sure you check out their site. Do you have a spouse that isn't so excited about boating or buying a boat? I loved reading their Spousal Conversion Kit which will have you and your sweeting talking about boating in no time. Look around at their site and find something new. Enjoy your summer and have some fun on the water.
