There aren’t many 10-year-olds like Ariel Ho. A competitive figure skater, Ariel wakes up at each morning at 5:30am. She has warmed up with a personal trainer by 6:15 and is on the ice at 6:45 — all before heading off to school. (read the story...)

Joining A Sports League:Five questions every parent should ask
A growing number of parents are doing their homework these days when it comes to choosing sports programs for their children – and with good reason. The word is out that making the wrong choice can be the difference between a memorable, fun-filled season for a child and one that deflates their confidence and smothers their self-esteem. So, before you plunk down cash for that colorful uniform and put your summer vacation plans on hold for those can’t-be-missed playoff games, experts warn that it has become increasingly important that parents take the time to inspect the program as carefully as they would a daycare center before signing their child up to play. (read the story...)

The Fast Track, Sports and Over-Scheduled Families
Once there was a children’s world, as in Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer, where kids could do what they wanted. Playing fields were part of this world, even for parents who loved sports. But raising kids has changed; parenting has become America’s most competitive adult sport, and playing fields have become places where adults congregate to see how their children measure up in the early phases of the race to the Ivy League.

Feeding Your Young Athlete
If your child plays sports, whether in middle or high school, you probably have a hard time keeping your pantry stocked. Active kids eat more, or at least they should, although many parents aren't sure just what constitutes good nutrition for young athletes. It's no wonder the concept is confusing, says Sarah Short, Ph.D., Ed.D, a registered dietitian and sports nutritionist. "It's not easy to generalize," she says. Kids in early puberty and adolescence come in a stunning array of shapes, sizes, and maturity levels, and when you factor in gender differences and athletic activity, assessing your child's nutritional needs can seem overwhelming… (read the story...)

Investing in a custom-made mouth guard
High-impact sports like football and hockey have had a long association with concussions, broken jaws and knocked-out teeth. But they no longer lead the sports pack in facial trauma. "The sports with the most orafacial injuries are not football and hockey any more because mouth guards are mandatory,” says Robert Peracchia, D.D.S., assistant clinical professor at Columbia University's Department of Pediatric Dentistry. “The most injurious sports to the head, face and teeth are basketball and baseball."

Where to: Fish & Boat in Westchester
Westchester offers everything you need for a day of family fishing. Within the county, you’ll find small streams and ponds fit for young anglers, and larger lakes, reservoirs, and coastal fishing for more serious fishers-in-training.

For 'The Perfect Game', Roots Run Deep
A quick glance around Barnes and Noble easily confirms it: Baseball appeals warmly to sophisticates. Writers like George Will and Roger Angell have repeatedly turned their attentions to the sport, examining it to death in social, economic and political terms, constantly trying to nail down its lasting fascination, and always, somehow, failing to say what's really on their minds about it — that baseball is fun.

Hanging Over the HudsonBAP sends two Barnard college students to trapeze school!
“You go first.” “No, you. Please, I insist.” Deciding who would take the first plunge may have been the most difficult part of our trapeze experience. But once we were up on the platform, we weren’t about to turn back. We came to Trapeze School New York (TSNY) expecting a one-of-a-kind experience — and that it was. With a few minutes of preparation, we ascended the 23-foot ladder to our jumping-off point. We weren’t about to just hang around. We were about to learn some new tricks. (read the story...)

One, Two, Three Strikes Not Out
In 1866, baseball was “base ball”. Uniforms were baggy flannel, balls were handmade, and no one wore gloves; a foul ball was not a strike, and stayed in play even when hit under the bleachers. By 1898, foul balls were still not strikes, but the first baseman and catcher were entitled to wear base ball gloves. While the rules have evolved, baseball today, even with its multi-million dollar salaries and designated hitters, has retained the distinction of the hands-down national pastime. (read the story...)

Outdoor Play: Kids Do It Much Less Often
Playing — especially the outdoor type where kids run around playing tag, chase, street and ball games — is good for children and should be encouraged, child health experts say.
